Bangai-O Spirits heading to Europe

DS masterpiece is August-bound.

D3Publisher will be bringing Bangai-O Spirits to Europe in August. Celebration! Happiness!

This is the fantastic DS side-scrolling shooter you may notice we gave top marks to at the beginning of the month.

But it's much more of a game than its genre suggests. "It's glorious; eclectic, furiously inventive, dizzying, baffling, confusing, witty, clever and beautiful," beamed Dave McCarthy after fiddling with a Japanese import.

"Some of the time it's like WarioWare; some of the time it's like Gradius; some of the time it's like Brain Training. But you never know what to expect."

And he had even more excitable words to use about it in his full Bangai-O Spirits review, which you should probably read.
