"Hudson is truly pleased to be working with Natsume on bringing an all new franchise to shooter fans worldwide," said John Greiner, President and CEO of Hudson Entertainment. "Omega Five promises to be the most challenging shooter in the Xbox LIVE Arcade library, and will appease the most hardcore fan of the genre."

The gameplay follows the tradition of past side-scrolling shooters: as the screen scrolls from right to left, you move your character in two dimensions, either shooting or dodging enemies and their attacks. As you proceed, you can collect both weapon upgrades for your normal attacks and “chips” to power-up your special attacks.

Features:

  • Unbelievable visuals for an XLBA game – No other shooter available on XBLA looks this good. This side-scrolling shooter, the first true next-gen HD shooter, is set in a gorgeous 3D environment.
  • Entirely dangerous environments – That ship flying in from the distance isn’t just for decoration. Enemies come at you from all sides, even from the background!
  • Challenging gameplay – Play through the game from start to finish in ‘Arcade Mode’ or test yourself with ‘Challenge Mode’, in which you go for the highest score possible on one level. If you’re hardcore enough, you can try your hand at the ultra-difficult ++ Mode, where you're only allowed one hit!
  • Choose your merc – Fight as Ruby, Tempest, or other characters, each of whom has multiple unique main weapons, along with both devastating and life-saving special attacks.
  • Local co-op – Grab an extra controller and demolish enemies with a friend by your side!
  • Unlockables! – Discover new characters, game modes, and options!
  • Intuitive controls – A modern control scheme uses the right analog stick to aim and fire.
