There may soon be a way of picking up and playing Radiant Silvergun
that doesn't involve second mortgages or selling plasma. Talking with Gamasutra
, Treasure CEO Masato Maegawa revealed that Microsoft has approached the developer about giving the cult classic arcade and Saturn shmup a makeover for Xbox Live Arcade.
While you reattach your jaw, it's worth noting that Treasure has yet to say yes to the remake, with Maegawa expressing concern that unlike Ikaruga
, which blasted its way
onto XBLA in April 2008, much more work would have to be done to Radiant Silvergun
before it was given the green light. "If you play Radiant Silvergun
nowadays," noted the exec, "it's certainly aged in assorted ways, and I'm not sure they're all good." Honestly Treasure, you can have our Microsoft Points, spit polish or not. Anything to keep our precious bodily fluids to ourselves.
