Otomedius Excellent
Even if some retailer revelations spoiled the size of the surprise, I’m still ten shades of strange-shooter-happy to get an email confirming that Konami is bringing Otomedius Excellent to the 360 this year. The sequel to Otomedius Gorgeous offers nine “stunning” characters over Konami’s brand of 2D sidescrolling – and three players can apparently team up locally or over XBLA.

Konami even mentions “exciting downloadable content to be announced later”. Not only is Konami bringing it here, but they even sound excited about it –

“As the sequel to the 2008 Japanese hit Otomedius Gorgeous, Otomedius Excellent boasts a significant visual and gameplay update since its predecessor. Accompanied by brilliant graphics and an excellent soundtrack, Otomedius Excellent will engage fans with the Gradius franchise on a whole new level.” – Shinji Hirano, President of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc.
