NCS Product Synopsis 
Updated: March 26, 2009
«©NCSX» The Naomi arcade version of the Trigger Heart Exelica shooter was originally released in the Spring of 2006 to some fanfare from the fanbase. The Dreamcast edition followed up in early 2007 and over a year later, the Playstation 2 version completes the circle with an "Enhanced" game upgrade which features a new animated introduction, a Story Mode, and a third playable character named Faintear who's a blonde that may be seen on the upper-left corner of the game cover. She's the antagonist in Trigger Heart and her weapon is a twin laser shot that cleaves upwards in a straightforward blast.

   The play mechanics in THE are fairly routine where the gals blast away at their foes with standard vulcan shots and flit through vertical aspect stages. The wrinkle in the routine is something called the "Anchor Shot" which allows Exelica or Cruel Tear to tether an enemy ship. Once captured, the enemy vehicle may be launched like a projectile at other enemies for added scoring. In addition to small enemies, larger ships may also be hooked and hurled into the midst of enemy forces for a group smash. An enemy ship may also be hooked and then used as a barrier against enemy shots. It's a new shmup technique to explore and revel in. Developer Warashi also touted the V.B.A.S. (Variable Boss Attack System) where end-level gargantuans change their attack patterns based on the skill of the player.

   The limited edition includes a bonus Exelica Nendoroid figure. We're not sure where Exelica's partner in crime, Cruel Tear, is but where's her Nendroid figure? Inquiring minds do wonder.
