Advertising Blurbs - Nintendo 3DS (US):
    Protect the galaxy from being on the food menu for a very hungry space monster!

    Pilot the Vic Viper solo through six stages of intense action, alternating between horizontally and vertically scrolling environments, and take on wave after wave of enemies. Destroy particular enemies throughout the game—all of which takes place within the body of an enormous alien—to release power-up capsules and equip your ship with your choice of more powerful weapons, extra speed, and shields. Utilize the power-ups carefully, though, as a fearsome guardian lurks at the end of each stage and won’t be easily defeated. You can go at it alone, or invite a friend to pilot the RoadBritish and assist in the challenge. Do you have what it takes to save your planet from the monstrous Zelos?

    This game is only playable in 2D.

Back of Box:
    Calling all Viper Pilots - the galaxy's on the edge of doom again!

    You've saved the innocent people of Gradius from the vile Bacterions. But now an even deadlier plague has slimed into the neighborhood. It's Zelos, an all-engulfing, planet-eating alien who's hungering to take a bite out of you! Only this time you don't have to rescue the millions of Gradians alone. You can call on a starfighter friend from the planet Latis, who'll fight beside you in his RoadBritish space destroyer. You'll both be gunning for max power-ups, with ripple lasers, plutonic missiles and impregnable force fields. But you better be on target. For this isn't your ordinary space scum. And to crush him you've gotta soar through his guts, blast past his death traps and ultimately blow out his heart. Good luck Commander. The Galaxy's counting on you!

    Featuring simultaneous play for two players or play against the computer.
