Players who have been around for a while just might remember the old Konami Japanese arcade scroller called Salamander. If the name Life Force or Gradius rings a bell, this is what we are talking about.
At the JAMMA show Konami had a few games out for test. They wanted to see what the players' reactions would be to these games, and if there was enough positive feedback, Konami would bring the game out. This version of Salamander 2 was one of those games and based on the lines of players waiting to give Salamander 2 a try, it is highly likely that it will be out in the arcades later this year. It was that hot.
Essentially this game is a plain-and-simple side-scroller with detailed backgrounds, large Bosses and plenty of action that requires lightning-quick reflexes MB to survive. Not much HF has changed over the, years since the first version came out. This was the major disappointment we had about this otherwise fine game. Based on what is in the U.S. arcades from Konami (not much), the best we can expect to see is an import PlayStation or Saturn version of this game sometime next year.
