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!

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!

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!

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.

-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!

I really didn't expect this one to drop today, I thought it was coming out tomorrow night. =oP

I also expected it to be a little more pricey. $5 for 4 Raiden titles... ported by DotEmu? FREAK'N STEAL! By the description, it also sounds like they learned from Blazing Star, and added both the original movement speeds and 'regular' touch screen speeds, so that should keep loads of people happy as well.... I'm so psyched!!! AHHHHHH!! Can't wait til tonight!

Wow... This is pretty damn good.

Speaking as someone who just did so, this is not a game you want to pick up to "see what it's like". For a newcomer, it's a hardcore shmup and I have no idea what is going on, hehe. Still totally fun though.
