French emulation specialist DotEmu has finally brought Seibu Kaihatsu's excellent Raiden
franchise to the App Store in the form of Raiden Legacy
- a compilation that features four games.
All four games in this compilation - Raiden
, Raiden Fighters
, Raiden Fighters 2
, Raiden Jet
- have been recreated and enhanced with several new features for Apple's iPhone and iPad.
Each title, for example, boasts three game modes: Arcade, which offers an authentic old skool experience; Mission, which allows you to replay any unlocked missions; and Training, which is pretty self explanatory.
Additionally, you can choose to play with each game's original controls or a newer and faster control system that's been designed for touch-enabled devices.
You can also connect your iPhone or iPad to one of Ion Audio's iCade peripherals and use a physical stick and buttons. If you're into that sort of thing.Raiden Legacy
has just shot onto the New Zealand App Store, so you'll be able to grab it in the UK and US from around midnight this evening. It'll set you back £2.99 / $4.99.
It'll be available to download for Android devices later this year.
