I ended up buying this game for the PlayStation 4 and Vita from the PlayStation Store. I wanted the physical copy, but it was more than I wanted to spend. There are a couple versions of the game for sale: Super Hydorah Limited Classic Edition - Playstation 4 (Limited Run Games) - Amazon.com
Super Hydorah - Playstation 4 (Limited Run Games) - amazon.comSuper Hydorah Limited Run #149 -PS Vita - Amazon.com
- Limited to 2,000 copies available worldwide. Region free.
- Includes game and SNES-inspired outer box, CD soundtrack, and 18 x 24 inch fold-out poster.
This game is quite a bit like Gradius Galaxies - for the GBA I think it is. The 1st few waves of enemies are almost identical. Muscle memory kicked in … it was weird. Reminded me exactly of Gradius…. but other parts of the game are 100% unique. I posted this somewhere on a steam comment as well.

If you're a Shmup fan, this game is worth a try. I Think I bought it on PlayStation Network for $12 something... I Could be wrong on that. I don't normally see it under $20. Obviously you'll have to pay upwards $60-100 for physical copies... and the Super Nintendo Box version looks pretty cool. I'm definitely a Shmup fan... and the Gradius style is a lot of fun. The weapons system is different. There are a lot of other differences as well - and enough to keep any Shmup fan interested for a long time. I hope they keep making more titles like this. It seems we have had a resurgence of Shmup titles.
