Retro masters MonkeyPaw games have brought the Japan only shoot ’em up Kyuiin to western players for the first time via the Playstation Network.
According to the press release “The action-packed space shooter centers around a boy who loves reading his favorite fables. While doing so…out pops a fairy, who asks for help against an evil-do’er who’s been messing with his favorite plots. That’s enough to light his fire. Joining him on the fight is his (co-op) sister. As they look around the room for a vehicle, all they find is a dusty vacuum cleaner, which the fairy magically turns into his flying white stallion, of sorts.
So off you go with your vacuum hose and power cord as your weapons. Suck the evil into your hose and then shoot it back out during dire situations or whip fantastical creatures with your power cord.”
You can find Kyuiin in the PSone imports section of the PSN store for the tasty price of $5.99. Sounds like a steal at that price.
