Rumor(ish): Raystorm HD headed for XBLA

Joy! Continuing its recent surge in remakes and re-releases on the digital marketplace, it's looking like Taito is set to bring its classic arcade shooter Raystorm to XBLA. There are two screenshots bouncing around on the NeoGAF forums, and if they're not real then somebody undertook one hell of a Photoshop project. I think it's safe to say we can expect this on Live Arcade before long.

From the looks of things, this is going to be another upscaling like Ikaruga was, using HD versions of the same models. Not a damn thing wrong with that, as the game already looked pretty decent as it was, and if you're wondering whether the gameplay holds up twelve years later, I can tell you I just played the PS1 version about three weeks ago, and it certainly does.

Details are understandably scarce at the moment, but we'll keep you updated when they start rolling in. In the meantime, you can check out the screens below, as well as a couple for Rainbow Islands back at the NeoGAF thread which you might be decidedly less happy with. But hey, at least Raystorm HD looks awesome.

[Thanks Adam!]
