 Wii Milestone Shooting Collection 2 - Japanese Preorder

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» The first Milestone Shooting Collection on the Wii collected three games from the company's library as follows:

» Chaos Field
» Karous
» Radirgy

   Not bad, right? Well, there's another Milestone Shooting Collection on the way but it's sort of a downer. The second volume rehashes all three of the games listed above and adds two titles as follows:

» Illvelo
» Radirgy NOA

   We were hoping Milestone would add Radirgy Noa Massive to the disc as well so that all of their shooters are on a single DVD. However, if they did that, they wouldn't be able to release Milestone Shooting Collection 3 on the Wii one of these days. Preorders ship on December 30, 2010.

The game takes place against the backdrop of the Meiji Restoration when the West began to exert its influence on Japan. Three groups operate in Samurai Dou 4: the government who cooperates with the West, the isolationists who want nothing to do with the West, and the Westerners who have landed ashore. Preorders are welcome to ship on February 17, 2011 and early reservations will include a bonus DLC card that allows players to become the virtual personification of a samurai named Sakamoto Ryoma. Sakamoto took part in a revolution that helped transform Japan from a system of feudalism to a united capitalist nation.
