MonkeyPaw Games, Inc. today announced that Arcade Hits: Shienryu is now available on the recently launched Japanese PS one Import section on the European PlayStation Network. The release marks the first time that European gamers will get the chance to play the widely-admired vertical shooter in its pure, un-touched form. As with most games in the Import section, the release marks the first time that many gamers will get to play the direct-from-Japan import.

Arcade Hits: Shienryu is a classic vertical-scrolling arcade shoot’em-up that was faithfully translated to the PlayStation with good flair and fun. Warashi developed the game in 1999 with stunning arcade graphics and gave intricate detail, which makes this shooter a wonderful play to this day. The amount of particles on the screen and their effects in the background as they fall to the ground are superbly displayed. The variety of power-ups and weapons gives incredible diversity and lends longevity.

“The PlayStation Network gets another classic from the Japanese vault. We hope Arcade Hits: Shienryu appeals to our user’s distinct understanding of Japanese game development. The game is feverishly fun and addictive, presented with fine craftsmanship,” said John Greiner, President of MonkeyPaw Games. “We look for games like Arcade Hits: Shienryu that show this Japanese development excellence.”

Other titles released courtesy of MonkeyPaw Games include the eye-opening Cho Aniki and the challenging Sonic Wings Special, both classic 2D shooters. Cho Aniki combines challenging and quirky gameplay with a hilarious cast of over-the-top Japanese body builders. Sonic Wings Special is a critically-acclaimed shooter with tight controls and enemy bosses that overflow with nostalgia. These games, as well as Arcade Hits: Shienryu, are all available on the European PlayStation Network now, priced at EU €4.99 each. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest releases from MonkeyPaw Games.
