The most impressive thing about Space Channel 5 is how it combines every single cliche in gaming yet the final result is intensely memorable. Grab your checklist: There is an impossibly well proportioned, gun toting heroine. The plot involves a savage alien attack on unsuspecting mankind. The gameplay is typical rhythm-button input. This would be a formula for a yawn-fest but Sega added one last ingredient to the mix, something rare and precious in the world of big name game development: Style.

Well, FINALLY! Both games come to Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Netork on October 4th for PlayStation 3 and on October 5th for Xbox 360. Now, I’m really looking forwad to this since I haven’t gotten any chance yet to play Ulala’s second outing! How about you?
Finally some good news for fans of Ulala and Space Channel 5.

There are many parallels to 2001: A Space Odyssey as well as concept art for Ulala. You can catch images from the style guide after the jump. More >
