Paris, France – December 4th, 2012 – DotEmu, developer and publisher specializing in modern releases of beloved retro games, is proud to announce that RAIDEN LEGACY is now available on iPhone/iPad and Android! This power-packed compilation includes four titles from the mega-popular RAIDEN arcade series: RAIDEN , RAIDEN FIGHTERS , RAIDEN FIGHTERS 2 and RAIDEN FIGHTERS JET .

In Raiden, the ground-breaking first title, Earth is invaded by an alien race known as the Cranassians, who threaten humanity’s very existence. To repel the onslaught, the World Alliance Military launches a daring counter-attack with a powerful new weapon: Raiden, a supersonic attack fighter. The Cranassians are closing in as you take the controls. It’s up to you to utilize Raiden’s powerful weaponry against waves of enemy ships and save the human race!

Originally developed by Seibu Kaihatsu, these classic scrolling shooters have not only been authentically recreated for mobile, but also enhanced with brand-new features!
