Default Katakis 2 is coming!

Unbelievable but after 22 years the sequel of Katakis (a classis commodore 64 game) is in development and will be ready this summer, made by Manfred Trenz (or however from its "Denaris software"), the same creator of the original Katakis and creator of Turrican.

It looks more like Rendering Ranger, mainly because of the weapons and the side pods, but good find

This is just what we need, more horizontal shoot'em-ups.

Lets hope it doesn't get banned like the first game and released as a watered down Denaris.

I used to prefer vertical shmups too, but after getting into the Gradius series. I definitely prefer horizontal shmups more now.

I like horizontal and vertical shmups equally.

This looks like it'll be fun, I hope it's on a system I have access to...

...

Who am I kidding. PS3 won't authorize a shmup and the graphics are too intense for the Wii. This is clearly 360 material.

(Then again, Chrono Trigger's graphics are too intense for the Wii, zing!)

Now we are going back in time, Denaris (katakis) was a classic on my amiga, broke many a joystick/pad with that one. Anyone here played on Takatis.? a tribute to Manfred Trenz.

Its a bloody good shooter. Also check out www.factor5.de and get the classic downloads.

So after years it's finally out with the name of Crush (same name of the unofficial Katakis 2 for C64), seems nice...

Wow, looks ok.

I thought the wait for Gradius IV Fukkatsu was bad at 18 months from the first video but this game was seven years!!!
