Why would that make me sad, you ask? Well, it's slated for release on Xbox 360 in Japan this September, and Konami has yet to breathe a word of it ever coming out anywhere else.
That sucks especially hard when you hear that Hori is releasing a sexy new arcade stick, designed specifically for use with Otomedius. Harder still? The thing has a goddamn touch screen on it, just like the original arcade version. I want one. We all want one. Purchase of this beauty will also score you a bundled-in copy of the 360 game itself, as well as six character badges, whatever the hell that means."
