So I just got the Cruisin Mix Special version from play-asia. https://www.play-asia.com/game-tengoku- ... /13/70c9bp

It seems like the situation is that since this version does not have all the DLC on the disc, there is really no way to get it unless I either buy it with a Japanese PSN account, or re-buy the game and DL the Tatsujin DLC from the US PSN store, since DLC is region specific, right? :-/


I have the Japanese Cruisin Mix Special, too. And yes, I bought the DLC on JP PSN.

The Limited Run Games iteration of this is shipping now, so anyone who ordered that should be seeing it soon.

How did the Switch port fare against the PC/PS4 versions? Did anyone here get that version?

On a side note, anyone know who sang Game Tengoku's opening themes? I want to think it's Kumiko Nishihara...

Whoa, how did this fly under my radar? This looks rad. Does anyone want to sell me on the gameplay? I read a review that said it plays like wacky Psikyo, is that right? And is the scoring any good?

Pretty confused by all the different versions, but I guess I'd probably be going with the Dispatch edition for Switch at this point...

"Wacky Psikyo" is pretty fair. The game has a fun sense of humor, and the whole conceit of traveling through an arcade (and console games) throughout various eras is visually well done. That said, I find it a bit messy and unbalanced. It's a game I pick up for a bit every once in a while, but not something I really dedicate myself to getting at 1CC on.

As for versions, there's really three key variants: A) The OG arcade game with the core cast, B) The Sega Saturn version, which adds a couple extra stages (Dragon Quest level FTW), C) The current "Cruisin' Mix" version which adds new DLC characters like the Tatsujin ship.

A key frustration with this port (at least the PS4 port) is that the DLC characters are only available in the new Cruisin' Mix mode, and this mode does NOT have the extra levels from the Saturn mode, and does NOT support Tate. It's so confusing why they did this, but that's how it is.

perhaps it's just my imagination but I'm feeling some input lag on the PS4 port. I 1cc'd the first loop on the Saturn with a CRT back in 2013 but I can't even make it past the second level on this new version. Maybe I'm just horribly out of practice.

Input lag sure is a convenient excuse for sucking

I don't know anything about input lag, but this is definitely amongst the hardest games I've ever played, like Image Fight or Pink Sweets level. It get particularly ridiculous on the space stage. A shame because I like the aesthetic. But it's like headbutting a brick wall.

As previously stated, I like the aesthetics of this game but surviving in it is a nightmare. It definitely feels like a Psikyo Shmup in some ways. I've only seen one 2-ALL for this game up on YouTube, which used most of his bombs against the 4th boss on both loops.

I extracted all the audio from the Switch version, which doesn't have the English translation for the menu text yet.

The Switch Japanese eshop version has the English translation? Hahaha, what the fuck is the hold-up Dispatch? Same thing with Psyvariar, the Japanese release (with English!) came out long before anyone hears a peep about Dispatch's own shitty work.

So glad I have this on Steam. No more giving any money to those morons after Psyvariar and Radirgy (which I BET you will have an English translation when the physical comes out).
