1UP: Gradius Rebirth Preview

Mega Man's not the only old-school hero who's decided to return to his roots; Konami's Vic Viper, the "star" of the Gradius series, has taken a step back into the past as well. Where Mega Man 9 aims squarely for the glory days of the late '80s, though, Gradius ReBirth has a bit more of the 16-bit feel about it. The sound is pure arcade, with jangly synths playing almost-but-not-quite familiar tunes, and the visuals look more or less like they were cribbed straight from the later Super NES days -- lots of pastel colors, and lots of slowdown when the screen's full of moving objects.
