Macross Shooting Insight

Red Art Games has announced a western release for Kaminari Games-developed shmup Macross Shooting Insight on consoles, set for sometime this year.

Macross Shooting Insight is heading west sometime later in 2024 for Switch, PS4, and PS5. A physical edition will be available in both Europe and the Americas, though info is coming later.

The Japanese release for Macross Shooting Insight is set for Switch, PS4, PS5, and PC — the PC (via Steam) version is launching worldwide but will only support Japanese at launch.

Here’s a rundown on the game:

MACROSS Shooting Insight is an all-new MACROSS game, the latest entry in the landmark science fiction franchise! When multiple dimensional folds suddenly occur across space-time, pilots and songstresses alike find themselves inexplicably transported to the Battle 7! From there, six stories unfold with the fate of the galaxy at stake.

Pilots, songstresses, and characters from five MACROSS series (MACROSS Plus, MACROSS Zero, MACROSS 7, MACROSS Frontier & MACROSS Delta) take center stage in a completely original story. MACROSS Shooting Insight includes fan-favorite songs from all featured MACROSS series! Use the power of songs to gain an edge in battle! Synchronize with songstresses while playing stages to activate a variety of buffs and debuffs, such as increased firepower, increased maneuverability, reduced enemy fire speed, etc.

Experience a Multi-Dimensional Shooting Game featuring pilots and songstresses that have come together across time! Play as pilots from different time periods and go through stages made up of multiple scenes, with each scene featuring distinct game types that utilize the different modes of each pilot’s Valkyrie. Stages include multiple game styles, such as horizontally scrolling shooting, vertically scrolling shooting, and 360-degree scrolling shooting.
