    Anyone remember that game? They talked about it in 2006 as a shoot'em-up for the DS made by Nibris. Nothing has been said about the game since around August of 2007.

    Whatever happened with that? I went to the Nibris (http://www.nibris.net/) website and there no mention of it at all.

    Here's a vid of the game for those who don't know what I'm talking about:


    Anyone know what happened to this game? After the extreme disappointment that is Ketsui Death Label it got me wondering about this one because now I'm amped for a good shmup and there are too few on the DS.

    Funny you should ask. I'm sorry I can't remember who reviewed it offhand, but GoNintendo posted a link to a review for the game recently. I clicked over real quick just to take a look, and it wasn't pretty. I think it got a really bad score -- 3.5-4 or something in that neighborhood. I want to say it was Gamespot, but I can't remember for sure. [​IMG]

    EDIT: My bad. It was Gamespot's review of Rebel Raiders for Wii. Oops! [​IMG]

    I'm sure I remember reading about this not that long ago, although I can't say how recent the source was. I'll see if I can find anything.

    The developer Nibris kinda stopped making it so they can get Sadness for the Wii done.

    There was talk of a sequel for WiiWare that also linked up to the DS version in some way. The developers didn't say for definite that they would do a WiiWare version but said that if they was to make it, it would be released after Sadness was released.

    I think I read all this around March/April this year.

    Ketsui extreme dissapointment?... i dont know what were you expecting from the game to start off, but from my POV, the game while is not an instant classic, its pretty fun.

    i concede that it would be WAY better if it had actual levels and stuff, but the boss-rush mode that it sports its pretty fun... and challengin as hell (i cant pass doom mode and death label mode yet! T_T).
