This is the 4th title in the Xevious series. It changes from the 2D format of the original to a 3D environment. You start off with the same viewpoint as the original, but later your camera is positioned above/behind the ship looking towards the action.

Secret MessageEdit

At the very beginning of the game, you have to cross a river. If you drop bombs at the edge of this you will get the secret message: "NAMCO ORIGINAL CREATED BY K. KENJO".

NeGcon compatibilityEdit

Although not enhancing the gameplay, the player could use the NeGcon controller to tilt the Solvalou.

Availability in the U.S.A.Edit

Although you can't get the game in the U.S., it can be downloaded for free onto the MAME emulator system, and works quite impressively, which reduces the need to pay to import, and takes only a minute or less to download.

Sometimes, a glitch occurs by pausing the game for about two seconds, and the background changes random colors, but does not effect the appearance of the Solvalou, or any of the foes.
