"North Americans may be getting a triple-shot of Raiden style shmupping, positive word delivered via multiple retail listings for the still Japan-only top-down shooter Raiden Fighter Aces.
One of the casualties of region-locked Xbox 360 software, Raiden Fighter Aces was released in Japan last March, bringing the decade-old Raiden Fighters, Raiden Fighters 2: Operation Hell Dive and Raiden Fighters Jet home on a single disc.
And it wasn't cheap either, weighing in at a hefty ¥6,800.
Looks like publisher Zoo Games might be the one smart enough to bring it out of Japan, charging a meager $29.99 USD for the compilation. We're desperately hoping it's true and praying for other publishers of niche titles like this to come to their senses and either region unlock their shooters or get their US subsidiary's ass in gear.
Oh, and Raiden IV while you're at it."
