Sky Stage is a vertical shooting spinoff from the popular series that takes fan favourites from the series such as¬†the noble and axiomatic Kyo Kusanagi, the sinister Iori Yagami, femme fatale Mai Shirinui,¬†everyone’s favourite pizza boy Terry Bogard and much more. In terms of gameplay, each character will have three moves avaliable, a standard shot that is equivalent to the main weapon, an ultimate attack that consume one of three power bars the character have that can be refueled by killing enemies and a bomb attack that causes damage and gets rid of bullets currently on the screen not unlike the touhou games (only without the insane difficulty or in my case, easy difficulty).

The game has a spriritual sequel called Neo Geo Heroes: Ultimate Shooting which even contains Sky Stage as a bonus extra due to that both games ru on the same engine however if your not up to importing that then hopefully if Sky Stage sells well enough over here then SNK can consider localising it.
