Raiden brings back a lot of memories and those memories can be relived on the recently released Raiden Legacy for iOS and Android. The compilation includes the original Raiden, Raiden Fighters, Raiden Fighters 2, and Raiden Fighters Jet. Pick up the game for $4.99 on the Apple App Store or Google Play.

From the press release:

    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! Each title includes three different modes: “Arcade Mode” (just like the original); “Mission Mode”, which allows you to play any unlocked stage; and “Training Mode”, which, true to its name, allows you to excel at your favorite stages and practice the most difficult ones!
    RAIDEN LEGACY gives you control of 15+ different ships, each with their own characteristics, stats, weapons, and specials! Choose between two different touch modes: “Fast Touch” (Faster than the original game and improved for mobiles) or “Arcade Touch” (Just like the original – retrogamers will love it!). You can also customize your approach by putting the controls wherever you prefer on screen.
