About the Tale of ALLTYNEX Trilogy

The Tale of ALLTYNEX is an epic trilogy of PC-based arcade shooting games in which brain-transplanted fighter craft, reflective shield technology, and blade-based melee attacks take on genocidal A.I. and ancient alien weapons of mass destruction!

 All three games are legends in shmup / shooting game communities, both in Japan and overseas and the series has spawned three original soundtrack releases and a dedicated guidebook. Nyu Media is working with SITER SKAIN to bring the complete trilogy to gamers worldwide in English for the first time.
