DS Fanboy Review: Bangai-O Spirits

If you've ever played a Treasure shooter, or almost any Treasure game outside of, say, Stretch Panic or Wario World, you know a bit about what to expect from Bangai-O Spirits.

See (hear?) Bangai-O Spirits' sound loading in action

We know that we we've already told you about Bangai-O Spirits' wonderfully ludicrous way of sharing custom level designs between friends, but we don't think you really get the full impact until your see it performed live. We witnessed a demo at E3 and, frankly, it changed our lives. Also,...

E308: More Bangai-O shots fired off

For the past few months, we've bombarded you with regular updates on Bangai-O Spirits like so many missiles. You might even say that we have an obsession, and you'd be right: we adore -- nay, love -- Bangai-O. If we were in charge of this scummy joint, it wouldn't even be DS Fanboy, but Bangai-O...

Treasure talks more Bangai-O Spirits

"Hardcore action awesomeness." That's how Treasure rep Arthur sums up Bangai-O Spirits (2:28), and we're struggling to concoct a more befitting description. The lucky blighters at Gamespot's "On the Spot" show got a chance to chat to Arthur (and his colleague Kaori) about the game, which...
