    In a press release today, Grasshopper Manufacture and Digital Reality announced a release date and price for their anticipated horizontal shooter, Sine Mora, for Xbox LIVE Arcade. Touted as a "dieselpunk shoot 'em up," the game will release worldwide on March 21 and will sell for 1200 Microsoft Points.

    From the press release:

    "Mixing classic shooter sensibilities with next-gen presentation, Sine Mora is a gorgeous shmup that appeals to both hardcore and casual gamers alike."

    "Sine Mora features over 60 combinations of planes, characters and time manipulation devices to complete every beautifully-crafted stage with scaling difficulty."

    With obvious touches from Goichi Suda (Suda51) and a soundtrack composed by Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill), Sine Mora comes complete with an "M" rating.

    First reaction: Is there a PS3/PC version? Second reaction: MASS EFFECT IN A 2D WORLD WITH 3D GRAPHICS!

    Nice gameplay, now if only I'd have a 360..

    I hope it gets released on PS3 or PC. The game looks great, like every other Suda game.

    XBLA?
    Suda51 titles don't sell that well in the first place but he wants to make it bomb even harder?

    It almost looks too pretty. I can imagine half of my deaths coming from not being able to tell what's in the background and what's not.

    it looks to me like another gradius clone, not much of a loss if it's xbox 360 exclusive.

    I'm assuming that it's different from a shmup.

    But this looks interesting, but I don't really see myself buying bullet hell or 2D shmups. They're fun now and then but nothing I really enjoy. And for $15, it's a bit much for my tastes, even with an all-star team on it.

    So I guess Suda got bored one fine afternoon and decided, hey, why the hell not?

    Knowing Suda51, I wouldn't doubt if this game finds a way to redefine the term bullet hell...

    actually Suda has nothing to do with this game, his studio is just the art and sound adviser I think.
