Redspotgames' Homebrew Shmup Sturmwind Gets A Release Date And A Limited Edition Box Set

Sturmwind_Dreamcast_Limited_Edition_0122nd December 2011, mark this date in your diary as a new addition to your Sega Dreamcast collection is fast approaching! Sturmwind, the homebrew Shmup by redspotgames which we've touched upon before, will finally be released on this date alongside a newly announced limited edition version of the game.

Originally announced last December, the year long development of the side scrolling shooter is drawing to an end as redspotgames begins to prepare copies of Sturmwind for release at the back end of this year.

Having already shown some rather promising footage, the homebrew team have just sweetened the deal further with even more icing on their Sega Dreamcast cake. The Limited Edition which has been showcased in their latest news post will no doubt have collectors frothing at the mouth. Not only will this version of the game offer an exclusive soundtrack from the game, but a detailed model replica of the Sturmwind spaceship at 1:72 scale.

The pre-orders for the Limited Edition have now opened, also offering an option for those who have already pre-ordered the standard release of the game. But should you have not already ordered either version of Sturmwind, here is a little reminder and taster of the upcoming shooter from redspotgames.
