Game Description

Fire up your Vic Viper for Gradius V, the latest, baddest, sleakest Gradius of them all! Continuing its legacy as the longest running shooter, Gradius features beautiful 3D graphics and mind-boggling environments. In your mission to destroy the Bacterian Core you will blaze and blast your way through seven massive stages of arcade glory. A new Option Controls feature, and 12 upgradeable powerups including the new Option Bomb and Option Stock round out the adventure. Old and still side-scrolling, Gradius is still better than ever!
