rdfs:comment
  • Produced by G.REV, the same developers who released Metal Black and Border Down, Senko no Ronde is a SHMUP-meets-Fighter game featureing two-dimensional movement. The vehicles, called Rounders, fight in a circular field with a variety of bullets, missiles, and laser weaponry. The game is best known for the way it incorporates Shoot'Em Up features, particularly the fact that each Rounder possesses a superpowered boss mode (called B.O.S.S.) which, when activated, turns the player from a small fighter into a large-scale boss with many intricate attack patterns.

  • Produced by G.REV, the same developers who released Metal Black and Border Down, Senko no Ronde is a SHMUP-meets-Fighter game featureing two-dimensional movement. The vehicles, called Rounders, fight in a circular field with a variety of bullets, missiles, and laser weaponry. The world itself is a typical anime sci-fi setting in which humans fled earth following a great disaster, and after 1500 years are only now returning to the planet. Much of the story takes place in colonies set up across the solar system. While the Aria Federation acts as a systemwide government, much of the police activity and military work is actually handled by private security organizations run by large corporations such as Goddiver. Many character backgrounds harken to an incident in the past known as the Embassy Occupation Incident, where terrorists took several hundred people hostage, then self-destructed, killing dignitaries, ambassadors, and civilians. The game is best known for the way it incorporates Shoot'Em Up features, particularly the fact that each Rounder possesses a superpowered boss mode (called B.O.S.S.) which, when activated, turns the player from a small fighter into a large-scale boss with many intricate attack patterns. Senko no Ronde is often compared to Virtual On, as it has a few similar gameplay elements. The game has a sequel, Senko no Ronde DUO, with an extended character selection and an expansion of the story, sadly only released in Japan with no intentions of bringing the sequel overseas. A follow-up title is currently in the works for the Play Station Vita and it's expected for 2013 release, although this title will be something of a Spiritual Successor as it will not be set in the universe of the other two games.
