Trivia / Otomedius

  • Franchise Killer: Unfortunately due to poor sales and harsh/middling reception of Otomedius Excellent coupled with Konami's lack of interest in the series, especially in Western territories, it seems very unlikely the Otomedius series will bounce back and try again.
  • No Export for You: For the first game, probably due to its dependence on a special arcade stick with a touchpad. The console-only sequel, Otomedius Excellent, released in North America in November, 2011 following some severe release date jumbling due to Executive Meddling from Microsoft.
  • Sequel First:Otomedius/Otomedius Gorgeous remain Japan-only, while the sequel Otomedius Excellent migrated across the pond to America and Europe.
