Fans of fruit-and-missile games, the leader of the genre has returned today, meeting its followers at the XBLA gates to reward their faith with a bounty of fruits and missiles, as foretold in the written prophecies of madmen and gaming bloggers.

It is up to you to answer its call and download Bangai-O HD: Missile Fury -- be it as an 800 MS Point purchase or a free trial -- saving your soul from a Bangai-O-less spring (simultaneously damning your mecha to a thousand missile deaths).

For those new to the multi-directional shooter, you might complain that the tutorial is in name only and that stage three is tortuous, but Treasure moves in mysterious ways. Who are we to question how many missiles should attack a player at a time?
