MSX is mentioned in a Gradius V review in the latest issue of the Dutch anime and Japanese pop-culture magazine Aniway. The first couple of lines of the review:

‘Een eenzaam ruimteschip dat het opneemt tegen een hele vijandelijke armada....het concept van de klassieke shoot-em-up. Helaas is dat concept de laatste jaren ietwat uit de gratie geraakt en moeten de echte shooterfans goed zoeken naar games uit dit genre.’

‘Gradius (of Nemesis voor mensen die de MSX een warm hart todragen) is zo’n klassieke shoot-em-up. Sinds 1985, toen het arcade-origineel het licht zag, zijn er verscheidene Gradius vervolgen en spin-offs uitgekomen. Deze update voor de Playstation 2 is, mede dankzij de input van het innovatieve en gewaardeerde ontwikkelaarsteam Treasure (Radiant Silvergun, Silhouette Mirage), één van de beste uit de serie.’

I guess I could scan.

p.s. I wonder if they finally released Gradius V here in the Netherlands.

offtopic to Grauw. Gradius V has been here for months. It just that your average crappy toy/music store like Bart Shit doesn' t stock it.
Rumours that it was discontinued in Europe directly after release is also untrue.
And just to be complete. Konami has just finished there european Gradius V high score competition.
IF people are looking for this game try NEDGAME (however you can allways have the change that they run out of stock. But so far they allways got new ones.)
or Dimension Plus. Or some other good gamestore !
Also BOL(english) and Proxis(french and Dutch)and NLstore claime to be able to sell this on. I say claime because NLstore has a quite bad reputation of liisting hard to get games which they in the end can deliver.

Wow that's a nice article.
I can imagine that you got some reactions from people within your town, not?

Well, this is a magazine that's available all over the Netherlands; you can buy it at the Bruna for instance. So no reactions yet, but who knows... Smile

Yes, Robert, shortly after I wrote that I ordered Gradius V on bol.com (along with Dancing Stage Fusion, also difficult to find!). I just got a note that they have sent the game, so the 2-3 days delivery time they mentioned seems to be correct. Quite weird that the distribution is so bad, because the game got raving reviews everywhere!

After the game got a review in OPM2, I went to several stores multiple times, ranging from MediaMarkt to e-games (or whatever the name is, I forgot), and each time they didn’t have the game in stock nor had information on when it was released and where to order it. Maybe the game never got a Dutch release, so the Dutch distributors don’t offer the game, and the availability on Bol.com is actually a UK version...?
