Raiden Fighter Aces Trailer

IGN writes, "The Xbox 360 has become the unlikely system of choice for 2D shooting fans this generation. Joining Taito's Castle Shikigami 3, the latest issue of Famitsu reveals that Success is bringing Raiden Fighters Aces to the platform. Raiden Fighters Aces is a compilation of arcade shooters from the Raiden Fighters series. Included, you'll find Raiden Fighters (1996), Raiden Fighters 2 (1997) and Raiden Fighters Jet (1998), all playable in their original vertical dimensions."

"On top of the full recreations of the classic titles, Success is including a few Xbox 360 original features. The game will include online support, with online rankings and the ability to upload and download replay data. To make sure you have the best strategies for making good replays, Success is also throwing in a DVD strategy guide with high score play for all three titles from Japan's top players."

"And, of course, a new mode of play that all purists require. The game will let you turn your TV on its side to play full screen while maintaining the arcade version's proportions."

Great news.
I'd like to see an updated vertical shooter as well(full screen, nice graphics). I've always preferred going up the screen instead of across it when playing fast paced scrolling games.
