Was hoping for this. Please have TATE so I can use with my flip grip.

I think I'll sit this one out. Raiden 4 is decent but has some major issues, and I already own it on Xbox and PS3, just can't justify buying again to use on a lackluster portable system, especially for how much they're charging for it.

Would have been better if they gave us a new Raiden title for the franchise's 30th anniversary instead of, you know, Street Fighter II-ing Raiden IV.

My biggest thing is that the ship is too goddamn slow. I know you can choose a secret fairy but meh. Don't like being forced to play a certain way.

Lol, which ones? I think it's the best Raiden game out there.

It sounds crazy but I kinda like Raiden V more, even if that has plenty of its own problems.

I really liked Raiden IV on 360 for it’s dual-ship mode, personally.

Well, yes, I suppose they can't let it go. I mean, they do release other stuff, but I'm not suprised at this point that UFO has since ported Raiden IV from vanilla to Mikado Remix, lol.

I do too. Especially the Xbox version, since it doesn't have all the Director's Cut junk added in that just makes the game even longer than it already was (which is my biggest complaint with it.)

Slow ship speed is a bit of Raiden feature.It certainly seems that way from 3 onwards anyhow.

I quite like 4 but I haven't spent enough time with it yet - got the Steam version. I like the overkill feature for point chasing.

Don't like 5 as much - all that chit chat going on doesn't help either. I'm glad I got it in a Steam sale as I'd have been disappointed at full price.

I came across this thread and screamed, not gonna lie. Thank God it's just a Switch port of OverKill. On the other hand, it's probably going to be weird, just like OverKill. You know, "World Record" mode using not-arcade difficulty and all that.

I guess it's better than Literally Nothing otherwise for Raiden 30th. I wonder if this is to build funds for a Raiden VI or something. Hm... I keep forgetting Raiden V is on Switch now...

UFO doesn't do these ports, they just publish them in the US.

I'm pretty sure the PS2 port of Raiden III was by Moss themselves. The PC port seems to be by some Cyberfront team, but the game is already basically a PC game anyway.

The 360 port of Raiden IV was also by Moss, and that includes the fancy new 360 Mode, the real Raiden IV. However, OverKill was outsourced to another developer who I can't seem to find the name of anymore. I think Moss designed the actual OverKill mode, but who knows at this point? Like with the PC version of III and Cyberfront, I believe the PC version of OverKill was put together by H2 themselves, but again who knows. There is also an arcade rerelease for Nesica that has 360 Mode in it (renamed Perfect Mode) which I believe is actually by Moss, not that it requires much effort.

Pretty sure all versions of Raiden V are by Moss. Same with Caladrius.

In case you haven't done it, go into the sound options and turn that crap off. And there's a button to get rid of the chat overlay that covers the top of the screen.

Loosk like "Shanghai Riceman", an outsourcing studio that don't seem to have done much themselves: https://youtu.be/a4vIJ6RRseA?t=28 They also did Caladrius for PS4: https://www.mobygames.com/game/playstat ... lease-info

I was browsing the USA region Switch eShop site today 4-1-2021 and lo behold, Raiden IV x Mikado Remix is listed for a May 5th, 2021 release date in both cart & digital formats with a respectable $29.99 usd pricepoint. It's a mere 807 mb d/l at best. It even includes proper tate (it's even compatible with a handy Flip Grip if you've got one) + global leaderboards as well.

Makes me wonder if Gamestop will stock/sell this particular Switch STG title in their brick 'n' motar store locations as well? If so, now would be a good time to pre-order a copy indeed. The very last proper Switch STG title was Psyvariar Delta that Gamestop sold/stocked.

Also, you can d/l the slick R-Type Final 2 demo off of the USA region Switch eShop -- it's a whopping 1.9 gb d/l though.

PC Engine Fan X! ^_~

Thanks for the heads-up. I was able to pre-order the Mikado Remix version on Amazon for $29.99. Likely all big game retailers will have the physical version then.
