Releasing on PC, PS4 and Xbox One this Summer, it offers a Story Mode that tells an “over-the-top tale” and an Arcade Mode that provides “deep, satisfying gameplay".
Whether Gematsu is talking about the original or not, I don't know.

Any thoughts? Hopes? Nah, we all love it for what it is :P

Hmm... Are the original developers involved at all? It seems like THQ Nordic got the IP from Digital Reality, but I don't think that them or Grasshopper are contributing. Weird. Well, here's hoping the scoring system gets a bit of an overhaul.

Well the first one looked nice, hopefully this one won't share the same glaring flaws. Like shitty game play.

This is... random as hell. I hope by "extended" they don't mean they're going to make the game longer!
I could hope for things like integrating the Time Capsule and Sub Weapons into the scoring system rather than punishing you for using them, fixing the auto-fire, making the enemy design for the first half of the game better than "fly in a straight line across the screen", use more than two colors and shapes of bullets, etc, but I'd be surprised if it turns out to be anything more than a resolution upgrade, maybe an "arrange" mode of some kind, and maybe an extra boss or two.

The funny thing mambo is that I tried Sine Mora years before I started playing shooters seriously and didn't like it.

Sounds more like one of those remaster thingies...

I told myself I wouldn't post in this thread just to complain about Sine Mora yet again. But Sine Mora was a massive dissapointment as far as modern shmups went, so here goes.

If you really want a shmup with furries to look forward to in 2017 then Jet Buster already looks more competent than Sine Mora's gameplay ever was.

Rozyrg's shmups are fab but I don't rate the rest of the output from "Team Grybanser Fox"

Zenodyne R and zenohell left me really cold, this looks like it's more of the same. I'm not convinced.

Sine mora was atrocious.

English voice option actually does sound nice. I mean, the game was already designed so that you didn't have to read and play the game at the same time, but it's still nice to be able to just listen to the conversation instead of reading it from the corner.

Also, an option for 16:9 ratio aka you can finally play the game without the black bars on the top and bottom.

Kinda weird that the co-op is only for Story mode, though. Chuck that in with "why do Story and Arcade mode have mutually-exclusive difficulty options", I guess.
e: wait a minute, it's actually extra-weird that it's story mode that has the co-op, because I think plot-wise you were always flying solo. So, we're going to have a non-canon co-op option in the Story mode but not in the obviously-non-canon Arcade mode. Okaaaaayyyyy.... :|
I guess it's just so they don't have to program what happens when more than one type of Time Capsule is activated simultaneously, nor do they have to add programming to prevent that from happening at all.

No clue wtf "Versus" mode is going to be.

Risk and reward - multiple difficulty levels in Arcade Mode with deep scoring and hidden rank system for the more experienced players

but... the rank bar is right there on the screen! Unless this means they're going to hide it for EX?


A bit disappointed that it seems nothing about the core design will be changed, not even via an optional new mode, but I wasn't really expecting it anyways.
