If you've been paying attention to our reporting on the X68000 Z, you'll know that Famibe no Yosshin's Cho Ren Sha 68k was one of two games included as a reward for backing the early access kit on Kibidango.
Something we failed to mention at the time, however, was that this version of the game actually boasted a number of visual changes from the original, as well as a few new sound effects that were previously missing from the 1.0 edition.
For a short time, this version was considered to be an exclusive for the X68000 Z console, but earlier this month it appears that Famibe no Yosshin has released Ver. 1.10 online as a free XDF file (as spotted by Gossokyu), letting those without an X68000 Z get in on the fun too using an emulator or real hardware.
To give you a brief history, Cho Ren Sha 68k was initially released all the way back in 1995 at the Comiket Doujinshi convention in Japan and is a vertical shooter that puts players in the pilot seat of a "Zanki" spacecraft and pits them against wave after wave of increasingly difficult enemies.
In 2001, it was later ported to Windows PCs as freeware, with this version boasting a slightly improved frame rate and, therefore, a greater level of difficulty. Over the years, the Windows port has seen a few updates, but the X68000 original has largely remained untouched, at least until recently.
If you want to give this new version a try, you'll find it on Famibe no Yosshin's GitHub page for free.
