At Long Last Sine Mora Receives A Release Date

Good news for shmup fans as the Digital Reality/Grasshopper Manufacture produced title Sine Mora has finally been given a release date.  After being announced nearly two years ago and then later revealed last year, Sine Mora has gone on to garner some good buzz as of late from shmup fans thanks to the talent behind the game and the unique steampunk style.  Now we’re less than a month away from the story heavy, time centric action of Sine Mora as the game is finally coming out next month.

The Shmup Genre Lives On In Sine Mora [Video]

Today is a very good day to be a fan of the shmup genre since gamers have a new title to play later this year which based on the talent involved could become the best shmup released in the past five years.  Announced last year, Sine Mora has resurfaced to get a little hype going for the debut the game will be making at Gamescom in two weeks.  A joint production between Grasshopper Manufacture and the Hungary based Digital Reality Games, Sine Mora appears to be a very old-fashioned shmup which by all accounts I think is what the video game industry desperately needs right now.

Soldner-X 2 expansion pack announced

If you enjoyed the shmup action of Soldner-X 2 but are yearning for more then you’re in luck as the game is getting an expansion pack.  Titled Soldner-X 2: Final Prototype - The Last Chapter, the pack probably has the longest video game title we’re going to see this year.  The Last Chapter features exciting new shmup content with three brand new stages, additional Trophies, new music and even a new and probably brutal difficulty level.

Soldner-X 2 release date and price info revealed

Shmup fans can rejoice as it has just been announced that Soldner-X 2 will be out on the PlayStation Network this month. Set to drop on May 25th for only $12.99 in North American and May 26th in Europe, Soldner-X 2 will no doubt be a hit amongst the shmup community.

Featuring gorgeous 3D visuals combined with classic side-scrolling gameplay makes Soldner-X 2 a gem in this day and age.  With seven levels, two ships, unlockable modes and challenging yet entertaining gameplay Soldner-X 2 is a steal for only $12.

The cult anime shmup Deathsmiles gets a Limited Edition for its NA release

I guess I need to expand my gaming knowledge a bit since I wasn’t aware of Deathsmiles. Released in Japan three years ago, Deathsmiles is finally making its way stateside this June.  The game which is for the Xbox 360, is being dubbed a “Gothic-lolita shmup.” Now to the average gamer that probably sounds like a whole lot of gibberish. But it basically means it’s a side-scrolling shooting game with innocent looking anime chicks.
