NES- Legendary Wings

  • Sale
  • Regular price $29.99

Though Capcom put out a number of arcade shoot-em-ups in the mid-80s, Legendary Wings is one of the titles that doesn’t seem to be recognized very often. This is unfortunate as it is a pretty interesting game, plus it was one of the titles designed by Mega Man creator Akira Kitamura.

Legendary Wings plays as an overhead shooter for about half the time and an offbeat run-and-gun for the other half. The vertical segments are pretty straightforward: As one of the two winged warriors, fly around and shoot at aerial enemies with your gun and drops bombs on ground units, akin to the classic shooter Xevious.
