I still don't really feel like I can justify buying a PS4. But once these two arcade ports come out, my mind will likely change. M2, a company famous for their attention to detail when porting games to new systems, is hard at work on PS4 versions of '90s shoot 'em ups Battle Garegga by Raizing and Dangun Feveron by Cave. Both games are danmakue-style shmups, meaning you'll have to dodge thousands of bullets and enemies per minute. Garegga is particularly infamous for its difficulty and use of "rank", which is a system that makes the game more difficult the longer the player stays alive (among other parameters). Garegga has only been ported to the Japanese Sega Saturn in the past and has an enormous asking price of $250+. Dangun Feveron has never been ported before.
And while Dangun Feveron will only be getting a digital release, Garegga is getting a pseudo-physical release. The deluxe edition comes with a soundtrack CD, art book, files, pin, instruction card, and more, though the game itself is on a download code, rather than a disc.
