Hudson Announces Star Soldier R for WiiWare

Hudson today announced that it is
bringing Star Soldier R to WiiWareT on the Wii. Like traditional vertically-scrolling shooters, the game features a top-down perspective and players fly from the bottom of the screen towards the top, shooting at any ship or structure that obstructs
their path. As players progress, they can collect power-ups to
increase their weapon or shield strength, and an all-new Force System
enables gamers to collect up to five orbiting satellites that can be
held close to the ship for defensive cover, or can be sent out for
additional firepower. Players can also decide how they want to play,
choosing from three control schemes – Nunchuk and Wii Remote, Wii
Remote only (held sideways) or the Classic Controller.

This tournament-style outer space shooter challenges players to achieve
a high score in either a 2-Minute or 5-Minute Mode. In 2-Minute Mode,
players have just enough time to battle through one action-packed
stage and one giant boss. In 5-Minute Mode, they also have enough time
to fight their way through a second level with its own boss.
Additionally, players can play Quick Shot Mode to see if they have the
fastest trigger fingers around! Once gamers have their scores, they
can go to the online leaderboards to see how they compare with other
players in their region and can keep playing to improve their ranking.
There’s also significant depth and replay value to this challenging
game, as players can keep practicing to learn all of the different
strategies to achieve bonus points in both 2-Minute and 5-Minute
Modes. If they discover them all, players might have a shot at having
the top score in the world!
