Star Soldier R is a top-down, vertically-scrolling shooter, “tournament-style” space shooter that’ll feature 2-minute, 5-minute and Quick Shot modes, online leaderboards, an all-new power-up Force System, and three control schemes to choose from (Wii Remote and Nunchuk, Wii Remote only, or the Classic Controller).
