Good news for fans of retro shoot ’em up from Psikyo: NIS America have announced that they will release both Psikyo Shooting Libray Vol. 1 and Psikyo Shooting Libray Vol. 2 in Europe and North America early next year. They will be known as Psikyo Shooting Stars Alpha / Psikyo Shooting Stars Bravo respectively in those regions. Just like in Japan, they will not be released simulaneously: Psikyo Shooting Stars Alpha will be first, followed by Bravo shortly after.
The games are already available separately on the Nintendo eShop worldwide, and the Japanese versions of the retail releases do have English already, but players who want a physical copy without importing will soon be able to get one!
Here’s a trailer for the two collections:
Here’s the games included in Psikyo Shooting Stars Alpha:
- Strikers 1945

And here’s the games included in Psikyo Shooting Stars Bravo:
- Samurai Aces Episode I
- Samurai Aces Episode II: Tengai

And here’s the list of key features for both collections:
- Pixel Perfect – Experience classic shooters beautifully rendered in high definition;
