Triggerheart Exelica this week on XBLA

Scrolling shooter from Dreamcast era.

Developer Warashi has slipped word that Triggerheart Exelica will arrive on Live Arcade this Wednesday.

It will cost 800 Points (GBP 6.80 / EUR 9.60), and is a vertical scrolling shooter that started life in arcades then waddled onto the lovely little Dreamcast.

You fly around as human-shaped spaceships and do flashy things like fire anchors to catch enemies and then throw them into other baddies.

Expect an Enhanced Graphics mode to boost everything into HD, as well as the requisite 200 Gamerscore points and leaderboards.

Old reviews suggest Triggerheart Exelica was far from essential, so you might want to wait for our thoughts, which should arrive promptly after release.
