I have recently bought a PS4 and Resogun is regaining my love for the shmup genre. I love the game: challenging, graphically amazing (in my opinion the first really next generation game) with a lot of replayability.

We all know the Xbox360 was great for the SHMUPS but I would like to know whats coming next.

We have Resogun, Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions, Velocity 2X and others.

UPCOMING GAMES:

PS4

- Ubusana: by the creator of Ikaruga and Radiant Silvergun.

- Galak-Z: The Dimensional

- Project Root

A City Sleeps by Harmonix on Steam too. Pretty good, amazing concept, but really short.
One of the only western shooters recently released that has clicked with me.

Resogun is no Cave game (what is?) but it's alright.

I'm hoping Ubusana is good. M2 is now the most promising developer in the genre, followed by MOSS and then whatever's next from Clover-TAC (if we see it any time soon).

I'd hope for a Crimzon Clover: World Ignition port if you are a fan of the genre. The best new shmup I've played in quite a while..
Yep. It is the best shooting game I've played in a long time.

Console players who want a good STG, seriously just pick it up on any PC you have, it shouldn't take much to run it.

2015 is going to be one of the darkest years for shmups particularly on consoles since time began.

*) Too many new people making them now don't understand what was good in the old.
*) Death in 2014 of one of the final Japanese companies making arcade shmups.
*) Microsoft already fucking things up for the niche developers left by somehow talking them into releasing on a stillborn platform in their main sales region. Honestly this bit makes me want to club whoever got that agreement like a baby seal. This is not the same as last gen when the PS3 was hard to develop for, and the 360 seemed like it had a viable 2nd place future in Japan. The XB1 is dead there. It is a non-product.

So the only real hope is Japanese indie titles jumping from PC to PS4. I'm sure Raiden will find itself on PS4 too. At least Revolver is good, better than Resogun IMO.

Crimzon Clover WORLD IGNITION is the best new SHMUP I've played in ages. It should be in every fans library. Nothing mentioned so far even sparks an interest for me after this game. Only thing that would get me hype is a spiritual successor to Radiant Silvergun/Ikaruga, another Cave shooter, or a sequel to CCWI from Yotsubane.

Thanks for giving Söldner-X 2: Final Prototype some love in the OP, I played the shit out of that game on PS3 and will play the shit out of it all over again when it comes out on Vita. I really hope they make a third after they're done with their Rainbow Moon obsession.

I'm sure they would be very pleased if they sold 30,000 of a game at $15 when they sell the same amount at $70 for the Japanese market.



yep. crimzon clover rocks though.
$450,000 is better than $0 (not counting that %30 cut). And it's not like it costs a horrendous amount of money to get the game on a Digital Distro platform. I'm sure Yotsubane isn't complaining about that Steam money. I'm sure if one man can flip the bill a whole company shouldn't be hurting too bad to do it.

Very interested in Hiroshi Iuchi's new project, keeping an eye on the rest.
Oh, and Resogun looks great but it's more of a tech demo than an STG, sorry.
And yeah, i hate the term 'Shmup'.

I'm making a comparison here. It's understandable why a company that sells niche games at a premium price has difficulty seeing the value in releasing a game on a platform that would cause them to price the game at a cheaper value than what they already set their iOS titles.

I really like Tyrian/Tyrian 2000. Are there any other shmups with RPG elements? Aside from Knights in the Nightmare which is awesome but not really a shmup in the traditional sense.

It was aimed at the companies and not you. I know how they think too. But the thing is they don't realize these games just keep on selling. Theres not a fight to get that last physical copy or to buy it second hand. Crimzon Clover is selling a lot during this sale just from word of mouth. I bought the game at full price when it was released, but there are those who would NEVER think about paying $70 for a game like this even if it was awesome. To have it hit at certain price points that people are willing to pay will get them revenue that they would have never gotten. Now those people who experience the game are going to recommend it to others. Later down the road.

After experiencing CCWI at $10. I would GLADLY pay $40 for another Yotsubane game if he were to release another on Steam.

Bought Crimzon Clover just now because of this thread. Goddamnit GAF
You're welcome.

Drifting Lands is an RPG STG that's on the horizon. It will be a while before it is released, but there is a basic demo for it on Steam right now. The aesthetics look pleasing and the combat system is uses cooldowns for special weapons. It's pretty neat. I'm super interested in it.
