Andriasang passes along word that Treasure’s Radiant Silvergun will be available to download from the Xbox Live Arcade on September 14. It’s currently unknown if this release date applies only to Japan or the whole wide world.
The shooter was originally released in arcades and on the Sega Saturn in 1998, but neither were never released outside of Japan. As such, the game is a highly sought after collector’s item. That’ll change after it becomes available for 1200 Microsoft Points ($15) on the XBLA.
Radiant Silvergun on the XBLA will include updated graphics, two-player online co-op and a special “Ikaruga Mode” for those who have also downloaded Silvergun’s spiritual sequel.
