Karous – Yet Another Shmup Ported To The Dreamcast
Let’s face it. The Dreamcast will not die. Sega’s little white box just refuses to give up the fight.
Japanese publisher Milestone is bringing yet another interesting 2D shooter to the Dreamcast in the form of Karous (official site) and will have a release date of March 8th, 2007.
Karous looks like it is similar to other Milestone shooters such as Radigy/Radio Alergy and Chaos Field. It uses many of the same gameplay mechanics of both games, but also features some of the cell-shading style for Radio Allergy.
This announcement comes hot on the heels of the news of a Dreamcast port of Triggerheart Excelia from Warashi. Must be that these late Dreamcast releases are still selling well in the import shops. Shooter fans are already in heaven due to the Dreamcast’s steller shooter library and don’t seem to want to miss an installment.
I’m still digging up info on the game and will update this post when I get things together.
