Bitmap Bureau's excellent Smash TV-style shooter Xeno Crisis made waves when it launched a while back, thanks to its tight gameplay, gorgeous 2D visuals and superb chip tune soundtrack.
Amazingly, it was developed with the Mega Drive / Genesis hardware in mind, but has been ported to several other systems - both modern and retro.
Digital releases on the likes of the Nintendo Switch and Xbox One have been accompanied by physical versions for the Dreamcast, Evercade and - perhaps most impressive of all - the SNK Neo Geo AES.
That's the version we're looking at today; it comes in the iconic clamshell case that seasoned AES fans will be used to, and even has a full colour manual. Because we're looking at the Japanese version, it's all in (you guessed it) Japanese.
Is it possible to own too many versions of Xeno Crisis? Probably not. Let us know if this one is in your collection by posting a comment below.
I bought this on switch in the sale and really enjoyed it so ended up buying it for Dreamcast noticed the silly prices on eBay which is just odd cos you can go on bitmap bureau shop and get it great game that seems tough at first becomes much easier with repeated play
@Gs69 "great game that seems tough at first becomes much easier with repeated play" Games like that are a lost art these days.
Most games are a pain to play over and over, but great games such as Contra or Castlevania are fun, even when I have to do the same stage over and over again, but I get a little farther each time.
I have been on the fence on this one, I might get it.
@Hikingguy it’s a great game pretty bare bones when it comes to options but it’s like a modern day version of smash tv an unrelated game that I love at the moment is Andro Dunos 2 same principle to gameplay but really well made can’t recommend it enough
