NCS Product  Synopsis
February 25, 2010
«©NCSX» The Naomi coin-op version of Rajirugi Noah was location-tested late 2008 in Japan, released in February 2009, and is making its way to the Wii a year later. Arcade operators have likely recouped their investment on the game already so the Wii conversion won't engender too much ill will from that beleaguered crowd.
Rajirugi aka Radirgy is a Milestone shooter which we didn't think would get a sequel because it was a fairly average game in terms of play mechanics and aesthetics. Rajirugi was apparently profitable for the company since they had enough confidence to release a sequel. The follow-up subtitled "NOAH" didn't light a fire amongst the Japanese shmup literati but we're sure it'll grab a few sales on the Wii and possibly make its way to other territories either as a standalone release or as part of a compilation.

In the game, players control a ship that's capable of shooting, shielding, and slashing. The "slashing" is in the form of a little sword which swishes to and fro like a windshield wiper. By shooting and slashing, the ship levels up both offensive functions for improved performance. "NOAH" features a simultaneous 2-player option and is viewed in the Yoko (horizontal) aspect which allows enough room for both gamers to maneuver and takes sides. Bosses in "NOAH" include a bald-headed homo sapien in yellow pants who performs a spin attack that launches fireballs and an aerial platform that disappears in a puff of clouds when destroyed.
Milestone includes a remix of Illvelo (Illmatic Envelope) subtitled "Calorie Off" on the Rajirugi NOAH disc which is selectable from the title screen. If you go into the menu, there is a "DISPLAY" option which allows players to adjust the aspect of the Illvelo game screen from TATE to YOKO.
