The game looks like similar to Turrican but it looks graphically Japanese I think:

Such is the life of a games collector who feels the need to own special edition releases! :lol:

There was a time I bought pretty much every new post-market DC game released. I'm being a bit more selective these days by only buying those I know I'll derive the most enjoyment from - meaning I've passed on Fast Striker (I bought it on iOS instead) and will do so for this game too as I was never a big Turrican fan. I'll be getting Sturmwind at some point in the future though. :D

Looks like a nice addition to the Turrican line. I may consider picking up a copy once it's been distributed broadly (ie, Play-Asia).

Please forgive the noob question: but they're still making games for Dreamcast?

Wow. That looks so awesome. I was such a Turrican fan as a kid, I couldn't resist placing an order for an AES copy of the game. :D Not quite sure how I'm going to justify spending that kind of money on a game to my wife.

It had better be worth it!

I wouldn't have bothered with this but I think it looks great and I love the turrican series + I can't help buying all those daft DC special editions!!

Fast Striker for me is the best game they've released so far, the game is so well balanced - it was a product of extensive arcade testing and this shows in the finished product.

Can't wait for Sturmwind, two DC shmups in one year I wonder how many more we'll see?

Yep there hasn't been an official release since Karous but there have been loads of independant releases of varying quality!!

I can recommend Last Hope Pink Bullets, Fast Striker, Rush Rally Racing, and even Dux (it's a bit of an acquired taste!).

It does look impressive, and the AES version I suspect will be amazing! I'd love to see photos if that's possible on arrival?

Yep going on past form PA will stock it, in fact you'll probably be able to pick it up from them after it's sold out at the official store!!
