Star Soldier R For WiiWare on Wii Now Available

Next-Gen Version Of Classic Hudson Shoot 'Em Up Hits Nintendo's Hot New Digital Download Platform Today

Hudson Entertainment today announced that outer space shooter, Star Soldier R for WiiWare on Wii has launched on the digital download platform and is available for 800 Wii Points.

Published by Hudson Entertainment, Star Soldier R is rated E for everyone.

This latest version of the classic shooter features next-gen graphics and a top-down perspective like other traditional vertical-scrolling games. Players fly from the bottom of the screen towards the top, shooting at any ship or environmental elements obstructing their path.

Power-ups can be collected as players progress to increase weapon or shield strength. An all-new Force System allows gamers to collect up to five orbiting satellites that can be kept close to the ship for defensive cover or can be sent out for additional firepower.

Star Soldier R is a 2-level game that features a tournament-style approach in its gameplay which challenges players to achieve a high score with either a 2-Minute or 5-Minute Mode. Each mode offers quick and exciting gameplay and gives players just enough time to play through each mode. The 2-Minute Mode features one stage where gamers have 2 minutes to battle through one action-packed level while fighting against one giant boss. In the 5-Minute Mode, players have five minutes to work their way through to fight and defeat another boss through a second level. Though both modes are time-limited, the added competitive and replay value for players comes after they earn their scores, which they can post to the in-game leaderboards and then check out how they compare with other players in the region, nation, or even the world. The goal is for players to replay the game over and over again to beat their high score, improve their ranking, and discover different strategies in order to earn bonus points in the 2-Minute and 5-Minute Modes. If they can collect them all, they might have the honor of boasting the top score in the world!

The Entertainment Software Rating Board has rated Star Soldier R E for Everybody, Fantasy Violence.
