Traditional Konami activity as ’90s shmup Xexex signs up with the Gallery Archives


‘Tis the period to be shmuppy

It might be the vacations, yet that won’t quit the retro enthusiasts over at Hamster from reanimating one more timeless coin-op on PS4 and also Change. Today’s entrance is a beauty, as Konami’s anime-infused shmup Xexex signs up with the Gallery Archives array.

Initially launched in 1991, Xexex is a flat scrolling interstellar shmup influenced by a few of the standards of the style — consisting of Irem launches R-Type and also X-Multiply, in addition to Konami’s very own Gradius. The gamer occupies the duty of a worthy room pilot on a goal to free the world E-Square and also rescue its leader — the reasonable princess Elaine — from the clutches of wicked warlord Klaus. While the gameplay is virtually the same to that of R-Type in relation to speed, control, and also also tool auto mechanics, Xexex entered into its very own many thanks to its dynamic visuals, stunning unique impacts, and also its popular intermission, which sees an in tears Elaine asking the gamer for aid. Just a beast would certainly decline to Put Coins.

While Xexex was a rather prominent title on the gallery scene, it remarkably was not ported to any kind of house systems — especially unusual offered Konami’s fondness for bringing various other gallery launches of the day, such as Sundown Motorcyclists, Lethal Enforcers, Salamander, Opposite, Thrill’n Strike et alia to Nintendo systems. Presumably as if “Super Xexex” was a certainty, yet it was not to be. Xexex would certainly not obtain a house port till 2007, when it was consisted of in Japanese launch Salamander Portable for Sony PSP. Therefore, this Gallery Archives version is the very first main house launch for Xexex… Much better late than never ever? I’m not exactly sure. Yet a minimum of the choice is there for completionists.

Xexex is offered to download and install currently on PS4 and also Nintendo Change, valued at around $8.
