Otomedius launched in Japan

I almost missed this earlier today. Konami’s latest well-endowed anime girl shooter is now available in Japan, bringing with it side-scrolling shmup action – along with a touch screen. The chances of seeing the game outside of Japan are pretty low but one has to wonder why Konami doesn’t try to test games like this out in foreign markets. There still are a good number of shmup fans out there and something as different as Otomedius could bring more people to the genre but I suppose we’ll never know for sure. The otomedius website has received a facelift since I last checked it, it appears that updates will be coming (or as it says on the website “Comming”) soon. Well they aren’t shy about the innuendo are they?
