G.rev-developed shoot 'em up to cost $19.99.

G.rev-developed top-down shooter Mamorukun Curse! will come to PlayStation Network in North America on July 16 for $19.99, publisher UFO Interactive has confirmed.

The shoot ’em up follows Mamorkun and other Chosen Souls who have been plucked from the realm of the Living and tossed into the Netherworld. Forgetting how they ended up there, the Chosen Souls are ordered by Ms. Fululu to assist her in restoring balance to the Netherworld and stopping the World of Darkness from taking over by sealing the gates that separate each world.

The game features seven playable characters, each with different mechanics and attack patterns, three gameplay modes (Netherworld Action Mode, Arcade Mode, and Story Mode), online leaderboards, 66 trophies, and all previously released download content from the original Japanese version (two extra Netherworld Adventures courses; two additional playable characters: Nowa and Rukino for use in Arcade Mode and Netherworld Adventures Mode; and alternate costumes for all seven characters).

    The last game I’ve played like this, was Cannon Strike for Dreamcast.

    Time to experience that glorious soundtrack again.

      Unfortunately, the PS3 version uses some terrible rearrangements. Hopefully the original, superior soundtrack is in there, somewhere.

    This is sort of unrelated, but does anyone know of any shoot ’em ups/bullethells that have a leveling system that persists?

    Meaning, you go until you die, but you retain that ‘extra edge’ for next go at it. I really want one like that. ):
