Microsoft Reaching for Radiant Silvergun for Xbox LIVE Arcade


Seems like Microsoft is having the Sega Saturn blues. According to Treasure CEO Masato Maegawa, Microsoft has been trying to persuade them to bring a remade Sega Saturn classic, Radiant Silvergun, to the Xbox LIVE Arcade. However, Treasure have not decided on whether or not they are going to remake it for the Arcade yet.

“Microsoft actually asked us if we could put it out,” said Maegawa. “We’re thinking about it, certainly, but it’s not as simple as just saying ‘OK, let’s put it up.’ I mean, sure, with Ikaruga, we released it as-is without having to do or add a great deal to the game, and it was popular and well accepted for what it was.”

What about you? Would you like to see Radiant Silvergun remade on the Xbox LIVE Arcade?
