App description: RAIDEN LEGACY, a four-title compilation of the mega-popular RAIDEN arcade series, includes RAIDEN, RAIDEN FIGHTERS, RAIDEN FIGHTERS 2 & RAIDEN FIGHTERS JET. Originally developed by Seibu Kaihatsu, each of these classic scrolling shooters has not only been authentically recreated for mobile, but also enhanced with brand-new features!

MORE OPTIONS!
Each RAIDEN LEGACY title includes three different modes: Arcade Mode (just like the original); Mission Mode, which allows you to play any unlocked stage; and Training Mode, which, true to its name, allows you to excel at your favorite stages and practice the most difficult ones!

MORE SHIPS!
15+ different ships, each with their own characteristics, stats, weapons, and specials! Also, some ships come complete with charged shots useful for when the screen is 90% covered with enemies!

MORE CONTROLS!
Choose between two different touch modes: Fast Touch (Faster than the original game and improved for mobiles) or Arcade Touch (Just like the original retrogamers will love it!). Whats more, you can customize your approach by putting the controls wherever you prefer on screen.

MORE FEATURES!
-Play in full-screen, or keep the games original screen ratio thanks to Original Mode (note that your fingers will be outside the game area).
-AutoFire: ON/OFF
-Two difficulty modes: Medium and Hard.
-Nine languages available: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Japanese, Korean and Portuguese
-Video filtering (for rich, smooth graphics)
-iCade compatible
-iPhone 5 optimized
-Game Center compatible: 15 unlockable achievements + online leaderboards.
Put your skills to the test against your friends, family and the best players in the world!

GET READY TO ROCK N FIRE: RAIDEN LEGACY IS HERE!!

for anyone that's familiar with the original Raiden Fighters... when you get this, can you comment on if there's any way to unlock the Judge Spear or Raiden MKII on the level select screen? If not, maybe let us know if they're added after completing the game. Maybe DotEmu will join in the thread and comment on this... =oP

I think I'll be buying this and love that it's universal, though I'll probably only play on iPad.

If you're into shmups... YES. DotEmu did a great job porting over Blazing Star - they also did the ports for R-Type and Earth Defense Force - Universal, iCade compatibility, original or touch screen speed (ship speed) with relative touch - autofire on/off - original pixelated or smoothed out graphics... 4 CLASSIC GAMES IN ONE... Hard to say no if you're a fan of shootemups. =oD

Hopefully this can be disabled, like other DotEmu games.

YES! YES! YES! I have been waiting for this! Not out in Europe yet though...

There have been quiet a lot shmups releases recently. Most of them were kinda shit but I have hopes for this. This is Raiden after all.
