The original game in this franchise launched back in 1987. In this latest entry in the series, the player’s ship is once again fitted with power weapons like the Wave Cannon. These weapons will be crucial when it comes time to blast your way through enemy forces! This time around, new types of fighter ships will be developed for the player as they progress in the game. Players will need to discover which fighters are best for the mission at hand. Good luck out there!

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
