Finally, a Shmup for the Wii! I say that cuz I totally despise Counter Force, which I have.

There is the Milestone collection as well... I'm sure Illmatic Envelope will makes its way to the Wii as well.

EVEN THOUGH IT SHOULD BE ON DREAMCAST.

Ocean Commander... was it made by Lexicon Entertainment?

Also Illvelo is indeed getting a Wii release:

Don't forget The Monkey King. Oh wait, maybe you should forget...

Actually, Ocean Commander for the Wii is the same game as Underwater Attack for the DS minus touch screen controls. I don't know why they renamed it. Maybe because it didn't sell too well as Underwater Attack?

I saw a DS version for cheap at Best Buy. Can anyone recommend it?
