RayForce, the acclaimed first title in the RaySeries, made a splash when it debuted as an arcade game in 1993. Since then the series has retained its popularity as a classic shooter as it transitioned to other platforms, such as home video game consoles.
RayStorm HD is a remake that combines the gameplay of the original RayStorm, released as the second in the series in 1996, with all-new graphics updated for the present day. The gorgeous Lock-On Lasers that define the title, the engrossing audio tracks and the epic eight-stage game scenario will draw players back into the world of the feverish shoot-’em-up.
RayStorm HD will be released on PSN(1500 yen) and Xbox Live(1200 MS points) in Japan on May 5, 2010. North American release date is still pending.
