  • Nineteen Forty Two
rdfs:comment
  • The 1942 series is a series of arcade vertical-scrolling Shoot Em Ups developed by Capcom, set mainly in World War II. The player is an American "Super Ace" in a P-38 Lightning who spends a surprising amount of time kicking the spit out of the Japanese Navy for a series made in Japan. Do not confuse with Battlefield 1942, which is a whole different ballgame, Nineteen Forty One, or Strikers 1945 (despite that also being a shmup series).
