You might have seen our Game Mag Weaseling column recently point out that GameSide, the retro game-focused Japanese gaming mag that shuttered a few months ago, recently came back to life in a way with an issue all about shoot'em-ups, featuring previews, strategies, developer interviews, retro items -- the works!

Though it's a Japan-only publication, import shop NCSX now has Shooting Gameside Vol. 01 in stock for you to order. It's priced at $25.90, but it does come packed with a coverage of Battle Garegga, Darius Burst Another Chronicle, Senko no Ronde DUO, Space Invaders Infinity Gene, and many, many other titles.

It also has a "a feature on Soukyugurentai, a pictorial for Muchi-Muchi Pork!, and a 8-page spread on developer Treasure which looks back at their games and enthralls readers with information on the development of Radiant Silvergun and Ikaruga."

You can check out photos of Shooting Gameside Vol. 01 and its awesome layout, which were shot by Shmups Forum's Rancor, after the break:
