Redspotgames Confirm Release Date For Upcoming Homebrew Sega Dreamcast Shmup 'Sturmwind'

Redspotgames-Confirm-Release-Date-For-Upcoming-Homebrew-Sega-Dreamcast-Shmup-SturmwindDespite being given an initial December 2011 release date, the homebrew Sega Dreamcast shmup Sturmwind unfortunately hit major development delays. Nearly a year and a half later, redspotgames have just confirmed a new release date for this scrolling shooter - one we hope will be upheld this time round.

Regardless of delays, Sturmwind has been shaping up to be quite an impressive looking title for the 128-bit system. Featuring fantastic looking environments and a difficult challenge to boot, Duranik's homebrew creation is one you don't want to miss.

Many retro gamers had already pre-ordered their copy of Sturmwind back in 2011, but those who are yet to secure their copy will be pleased to know that it can still be ordered directly from redspotgames. Both pre-orders and new orders will be shipped out on the new release date, April 24th 2013, gifting Sega Dreamcast fans a bullet filled experience on the fabled console.

Sturmwind Release Date Press Release

The fierce enemy‘s troops have already reached our world‘s doorsteps and we are running out of time! Our reconnaissance drones have detected 16 promising locations for our search of „Mother“, the planet of our living ancestors. After several development steps by Duranik and redspotgames the launch date for your mission is clear.

Sturmwind pilots, your all-dominant mission will begin on April 24th 2013. All documents will be sent to you until this very date.

Fight over 20 boss enemies in 16 levels. In addition to the so-called “Award Trophy System”, there will also be an internet highscore list in which your performance can compete against each other worldwide. Your wings of steel are now our last resort.

Stay ready for further instructions. Over and out.

This has to be one of the best looking shooters produced on the DC; I love shmups but hate bullet-hells and from the trailer, it looks like they got this one right.

But 70 euros - sheesh! Out of my price range. :(
