Another 360 shmup is on the way

Eschatos will be released on March 24 in Japan for the Xbox 360. The game is developed and published by Qute, who are responsible for the Bandai Wonderswan’s official development kit, WonderWitch. Back in the day, Bandai actually held a contest to see who could create the best WonderWitch game. The prize was to have the game officially published. That game was Judgement Silversword, a vertical shooter. Thanks to Qute’s ownership of the game’s rights, they’ll be bundling Judgement Silversword with Eschatos, which is the best part of this whole story in my opinion. I’ve held that $200 game in my hands before, but I’ve never had the chance to actually play it legally.
