Maybe old, but Twinbee is going to be one of the 3D Classics

Anyone remember Stinger on the NES? Twinbee, the predecessor to that game, was announced as one of the 3D Classics and will be released in Japan next week.

I don't think Twinbee was released before in the US besides the arcade version. Stinger was pretty fun, though. I do find it odd that Nintendo is choosing another vertical shooter as a 3D classic, especially so soon after Xevious.

It is better for you to die in hope than to live in despair. Life is but a passing dream, but the death that follows is eternal.

I hope we get this one too. TwinBee is a really fun shooter and I especially like the Turbografx16/PC-Engine version of the game. Stinger was also one of the earliest games I played on the NES and brings back fond memories too. Anyway I am pretty much sold on the whole 3D classics concept after playing Xevious so it's not hard to convince me to pick this up.

There are so many amazing NES games for Nintendo to choose from. They really tried their hardest to disappoint.

They are making some absurdly bizarre picks. Twinbee's not terrible, but I doubt anyone would put it in the top 10 shmups on NES.

This game is garbage. I still remember it from when I was a kid. I think they are doing this on purpose. There is no logical explanation why they would choose this over some of the most beloved games of all time. There is some sick agenda here going on behind the scenes.

I think they are fighting fire with fire. They are all pissed that noone is buying the 3DS anymore, so they are just like, "F it, you people want to turn your backs on us? This is what you get! TWINBEEEEEE HAHAHAAAAAA"
