    - English voices
    - no waterfall or snowfield music
    - Weapons: Normal, Laser, Homing and Spread
    - Settings available: Volume for BGM & SFX, Diff. Easy-Normal-Hard (Nightmare is unlockable), Lives 3-5-7, etc.
    - Infinite Continues.
    - Controls: 1 is shoot, 2 is jump. Hold the shoot button to stand still and shoot in all 8 directions, A or B button for weapon switching
    - Cube and Classic controller support
    - unlockable characters
    - more than 5 stages
    - bosses will fight you multiple times
    - no wifi

    It was previously said that the game will feature co-op & will be released May 12th for 1000 points in Japan.

    Wouldn't it be great to have some other Konami games get the ReBirth treatment?

    Always good to see more quality WiiWare titles pop up.
    Glad to see GC controller support too!

    *drools* This is definitely a buy if it ever comes stateside. I haven't played any VC's nor Wiiwares yet, so this game has the honor of being the first!
