They’ve already released a couple of titles for the Neo GeoMVS and Dreamcast and NG:DEV.TEAM, a game development group based in Germany is teasing their next Neo-Geo (and Dreamcast) title, GunLord. All we know about the game at the moment is from the teaser site image – it’s a jump and shoot action game with a focus also on exploration. Metroid meets Contra comes to mind, or Turrican, or any number of great side-scrolling classics in this vein. It’s good to see NG Dev Team branching out into this genre (supporting a genre that hasn’t had good representation in arcades in quite some time) and as soon as we find out more we’ll be happy to pass it along.
In the mean time I’ve added the game to our New Games Watch list for the year. I’ll add a page detailing the game to the site once we find out more.
UPDATE: New pics of GunLord can be found here
