New Thunderforce Is Coming Soon

What an excellent week it's been for classic game fans! The DS gets a new (release of) Chrono Trigger, the Wii gets a new 8-bit Mega Man, and now this! NeoGAF's neo2046 noticed an update to Thunder Force developer Tecnosoft's website stating that a new entry in the longstanding shmup series is on the way. The WHOIS data for indicates that the domain has been in the possession of a Japanese company since 1996, and shows previous TecnoSoft webpages in that space, so this seems legit.

There's very little information on the barebones site -- in fact, you're looking at all of it -- so Wii Fanboy don't know which platform or platforms TecnoSoft is planning to release the game on. But it's a shooter, and the Wii is where shooters go this generation. TecnoSoft would be able to release classic Genesis Thunder Force games on the Virtual Console to promote it.

Thunderforce 5 and Gold Pack on Sega Saturn was undoubtedly classic titles, I look forward to playing this latest iteration but Only if it comes to Xbox 360 where it belongs

This is an awesome shmup series. If anyone here never got the chance to play Thunder Force V on the PSone, now is the time to find a used copy and play it. It's a great game, and worthy of any shmup fan's game library.
