Rockin’ Android is continuing their mission of bringing doujin games to consoles with Crescent Pale Mist. The North America publisher of Suguri and Gundemonium picked up the rights to Crescent Pale Mist a few months ago.
Can't help but think when I look at this why does it seem like so little effort is being put into DLC games. That there should be something along the line of PS1 titles, but there aren't. Though this is a step in the right direction.
I want this to be Hori stick compatible so that it would feel like I'm in an "coin-up" arcade system. -End statement
Now this looks awesome, like lbps evil twin brother with lasers and explosions! Anybody know of a releasedate?
Alright, the Xbox can keeps it's XBLA Castlevania game, this looks much more impressive and fun. Although I do love Castlevania's look and feel, this game looks to be fast. Lets hope for multiplayer of sorts though.
It could still due with some polishing, which it might not get because of its import/indy status.
It won't get any modifications. Rockin' Android already released 3 doujin shmups on PS3, and they're pretty much strict, faithful ports. That said, I'm sure it doesn't cost them an arm and a leg to bring it over here, and they'll thrive on just their core audience buying this up. It's much more about the ideas than the polish or production values; as you said, it's an independent game. I'm pretty excited about it myself!
Doujin games always have such amazing music. Can't wait to buy this.
it looks fun to play ...
. Looks better than I thought. The graphic & character designs are similar of that NISA games (Disgaea, Mana Khemia, etc) but the game-play is the main attraction. It's a side scrolling hack-and-slash combined with shoot-em-up. The boss battles in 3:40 & 6:40 are awesome.
