Arcades have been a big aspect of my life as a gamer in the 80’s and 90’s, sooner or later paving the way for all these games we would play on residence consoles without having getting to invest all of our really hard-earned quarters.
Fighting games, beat ‘em ups, shoot ‘em ups, and lots of other genres would nearly generally come to the arcades 1st, and only a couple of months later be ported to the residence consoles of the time. And then there have been these games that by no means produced the transition.
Vasara was a single such game. Released by Visco in the year 2000, it was a shoot ‘em up primarily based on an alternate Japanese history and produced use of some pretty exceptional game mechanics. Relying heavily on melee methods to succeed in a shoot ‘em up? That is what I get in touch with pondering outdoors the box.
Small did I know that eighteen years later we, QUByte Interactive, would have the honor — and big duty — of bringing that game that amazed us all back then to a complete new audience for the pretty 1st time.
When we 1st approached Visco, the original developer, with the thought of porting Vasara to the PlayStation family members, we knew how substantially they cherished these games and have been pretty glad they trusted us with such a beloved franchise.
