Former blogger Rafael once said excited about Konami's classic compilation Gradius Collection
: "We likey!
" Well, it looks like Konami's planning to make Rafael likey for a long, long time, with new compilations of their other classic shooter series. The Salamander Collection
and Parodius Collection
will contain four titles each (with one bonus *secret* title for each compilation... ooh!). I'm personally psyched for Twinbee Collection
, because it's by far the most recognizable of these hardcore shooters (it also has one more game than the other collections, for the budget-conscious).
All three collections are planned to hit Japan in January for 4179 yen (less than $40), so importers should keep an eye out. Until then, educate yourself on these classic series by visiting Wikipedia.
