    No idea on region locking. Shockingly a US release is pegged for late June.

    Konami's turn to do the shoot 'em up circle.

    Borrowing the Amazon US description

    Brilliant graphics and an excellent soundtrack. Environments are rendered in hi-definition and complemented by thrilling music.

    Eye-popping Gallery mode. View your unlocked stills and graphics in a new Gallery that grows as you progress through the game.

    The lovely ladies of Otomedius Gorgeous arrive in the US for the first time in Otomedius Excellent!, the highly anticipated sequel to the Japan-exclusive arcade hit!

    Great to see these coming out. Otomedius is pretty much the new parodius, and seeing as how parodius is my fave SHMUP series, I hope these sell well so konami might bring back the true king of crazy shmups! This is close to paro, but every ship is a pretty girl. Paro's got a MUCH better variety, including dudes riding paper airplanes, penguins and octopi, and still has its fair share of girls too.

    Well, any nonsense shmup from konami is good news to me, anyway. Otomedius is literally "Maiden Gradius" while Parodius is simply "Gradius Parody" in english, so both are silly concepts.

    I have a Japanese Xbox coming my way anyway. So I can play the first one and once done, I can move over to the second.
