Upcoming game from G.Rev and Galchi (ex-Seibu Kaihatsu developers).
Game will apparently be on a Naomi cart (not GD-Rom).
There's a substantial amount of info (4 pages) in this months issue. I'll take a stab at it later... going to go read a bit on the can. I did pick out one blurb that states the game will scroll in different directions (sideways, diagonal).
Galchi (or garuti or whatever) consists of old Raiden & Raiden Fighters developers. The three interviewees are G.Rev's Marumaya, and Chatani and Saitou from Galchi. Note that Saito worked at not only Seibu Kaihatsu, but also Moss. Kind of sad since Raiden III looks so lame compared to the rest of them.
The game will be "wafuu" of sorts. As you can tell from he illustrations the characters are wearing kimonos. However, one of the taglines taken from the interview is "Wa that doesn't adhere to Wa". (Wa means Japanese [style] in this sense).
At first glance it seemed it would be free-roaming, but that's not the case. There are different paths, and different stages/paths will scroll different ways (diagonal, sideways, etc.). The screen is TATE for those that haven't seen the screenshots.
The game will be playable at the AM show, and they will have a location test coming up.
