Seeing NGDEV's track record it's safe to assume this will eventually end up on the Dreamcast as well.
"Dear NEO GEO fans,
we are proud to present our new game "Kraut Buster"!
Kraut Buster is a 16 bit comical action run'n'gun shooting game for NEO GEO.
This game had so far our biggest staff and budget with 2 full time pixel artist, 1 freelancing pixel artists,1 coder/designer, 1 musician
A few years ago we wouldn't have thought we can do such a project, but we used the years to build up a very talented team for our company and we will continue to do so.
Kraut Buster is our first game with a 2 player simultaneous mode/CO-OP. Which is a lot of fun in this game.
The 2 player mode is fully integrated in our base engine and future games will take advantage of this where appropriate.
As there are already too many slugish games on NG, we doubled the frame rate, infused Contra style game play into it and added some NGDEV flavors. It plays quite fresh compared to the known games.
Now enjoy the 1st tailer video and TV/CRT like screen shots: http://www.kraut-buster.com
The player in this video plays it very fast, but the game allows you to choose your own pace. May it be fast and furious or slow and methodical.
We tried to show the verticalness of the game play too. We added a lot of opportunities to fight the enemies on different height levels and you can take advantage of your surroundings.
You can pre-order it now for MVS at http://www.ngdevdirect.com
Thanks to the strong US Dollars and low EURO US customers save a lot of money this time. It's probably the best time ever to purchase one of our games.
We offer this time 3 MVS variants for the first time. The Gamer Edition is new and saves a little bit on both the game and shipping.
Like usual we started with MVS pre orders, within the next few month we add AES pre orders too.
As you know by now this is not the rumored "top-down soldier" project. Both projects are related though. Kraut Buster is the main franchise, the other will be a smaller spin off sharing characters.
In case you didn't read on Twitter or Facebook, we returned to use plastic shells. This time black ABS shells.
Sorry for the long text, but we are quite excited about this release "
