Chain Blaster | Sagitarrius

July looks like it will be a good month for the eShop. Sometime later this month, those of us in the West are getting Chain Blaster and Undead Bowling, courtesy of G-Style. The first title is a SHMUP we had previously covered, where the focus seems to be on chaining together enormous attacks to destroy enemy ships and temporarily freeze the clock. I am very glad to hear that it is coming stateside, and will definitely be downloading it on day one. Here’s a quick trailer to show what it’s all about.

The other title, Undead Bowling, is something entirely different and strange. Like you would guess, the premise of the game is to knock down zombies with your bowling ball. It is unclear whether or not the zombies can fight back, but it is clear that this title will focus on style and gratuitous zombie bloodshed. I may pick this one up as well, if for no other reason than it reminds me of House of the Dead: Overkill, the crazy rail shooter that carved out a special place in my heart. Take a look at the trailer to see what you think!
