1UP: Otomedius Gorgeous Preview

Konami has been keeping Gradius series fans happy these past few years with releases like Gradius 5, the PSP Gradius Collection, and the recent Japanese WiiWare title, Gradius ReBirth. But things have gotten a little...bubblier in the new, currently Japan-only Xbox 360 shoot-em-up Otomedius Gorgeous! ("Otome" being the Japanese word for "young woman," and "-dius" being the suffix for any Gradius-inspired game.) Although the series is a spiritual sequel to Gradius, the Otomedius games are more in line with the Parodius series, which took the Gradius brand of shooting and put it in a world of complete cartoon wackiness.

The story is too old to be commented.
