    "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."

    Wow, it's been some time since the last time I played the compilation of 1 and 2 on the PS1 [​IMG] . I'm surprised these games are still alive, considering the lack of shmups and top-down shooters nowadays.

    I have these all MAMEd up, but it's good for the 360 owners out there, I guess.

    However, if Otomedius ends up here, I would be able to truly die happy.
