They state it will have M2 gadgets, arranged music, and a variety of game modes.

Also, here's a short M2 interview about choosing ESP.Ra.De. Not really any new info here, though:

Some top players have tried the port at this location test and seem to think the slowdown is pretty accurate:

https://twitter.com/wsmmkz/status/1126722995030904832

However, it appears the sprite flicker that often occurs right before the slowdown begins is not in the port (yet), which causes some of the slowdown to feel a bit different.

https://twitter.com/wsmmkz/status/1127756712969064449

There is no other news yet, such as release date or platform(s) (I mark it tentatively as PS4, due to the high likelihood of it being released on that platform).

This is not a game I ever play or know much about. I've played it a few times over the years, but it's not my style.

Hopefully an ESP.Ra.De pro will write a good guide for the game.  :righton:

Some updates!

First, the release date is December 19th, for both PS4 and Switch.

Second, there is a new "Arcade Plus" mode, which will be playable at Hey arcade for two weeks starting from today:

I'm pretty excited as I've never spent any time with this game.

Hopefully have a BEEP version secured for the pretty cardboard to hold all the bonus stuff I'll never look at.  I'm really interested to see where M2 goes after this.  I'd love if they finished up the Bat series of games but will be surprised if that happens.  Then again I would have never seen Mahou Daisakusen coming either.

Arcade plus mode will include newly recorded voices, and a new (more expanded) script, written by Joker Jun:

Of course, the original voices will be available as well.

@brentsg: I think their next CAVE port will be Ibara + Ibara Kuro (they have dropped too many hints about this over the past year). But we might get a Raizing port before that!

The digital download version is only 4500 yen, compared to the regular physical edition at 6800 yen and the LE at 9800 yen. I always buy these PS4 STG ports digitally, so I really appreciate the cheaper digital price. It makes it so much easier to start up a quick credit or two instead of swapping discs in and out.

Also, the physical versions will come with the game on a disc (PS4) or cart (Switch). Not a download card.
