That... seems like a reasonable prediction. Feels like "get ready to fight" would include stuff like Undercover Cops, Ninja Baseball Bat Man, Blade Master (that would be one heck of a trio, IMO!)gbaplayer wrote: ↑Tue Oct 10, 2023 6:51 pm So Vol. 3 will include Mr Heli, Mystic Riders and Dragon Breed. I wonder why the hint they posted months ago, mentioned "get ready to fight". The hint for Vol. 4 says "further arcade shmup adventures" and Vol. 5 "platform fun".
I think vol. 3 will be the further arcade shmups collection and we wont get R-Type Leo or Gallop.
I guess if you're looking for a bright side, maybe that means Hamster will get R-Type Leo and Gallop sooner on Arcade Archives? And possibly higher quality, as Hamster is pretty consistently good and we have yet to see how these Irem collections turn out.
For anyone who's curious, there are currently 11 IREM games on Arcade Archives:
10 Yard Fight
Heroic Episode (Youjyuden)
In the Hunt (Kaitei Daisensou)
Kid Niki: Radical Ninja (Kaiketsu Yanchamaru)
Ninja Spirit (Saigo no Nindou)
Traverse USA (Zippy Race)
