Here is an overview of the game, via Degica Games:

The Game Paradise is Jaleco’s self-parody-filled shooting game, full of tongue-in-cheek references to video game tropes, off-beat humour and sociopathic pigs.

Released to arcades in 1995, upgraded for its console debut in 1997, now the original developers have got back together to bring the ultimate revival to PlayStation 4 and PC.

Key Features

  • Six stupendous ships (robots, schoolgirls, ace pilots, and pigs?!).
  • Eight parody-fueled stages (JRPGs, driving games, karaoke and more).
  • Multiple soundtracks, display modes and other extras.
  • Online leaderboards, time attack modes and eggplants galore.
  • A nostalgia-packed data library of Jaleco history.
  • Did we mention bomb-wielding pigs?

The international version features subtitled story skits, songs and fully-voiced ‘commentary’ in the data library, where the characters argue amongst themselves while explaining the various featured titles.

The Special edition adds exclusive remixed tracks for all characters, a new Clarice bomb, and more and will come as a free update to all current owners of the game!
