In a similar style to the original Time Crisis, you once again take the role of Richard Miller, who has been framed for the murder of the president of Caruba. It is your job to shoot your way through the many levels of bad guys with your GunCon, and find the real killer before time runs out.
The game is allegedly developed by a US studio called Flying Tiger Development. This is referenced in later press releases by the company, mentioned in several reviews and listed on the LinkedIn page of some team members, but there is no objective proof of the involvement of the US studio at all. Flying Tiger is not mentioned in any official information of the game or on any Namco website, there is no reference on the cover art, and the credits attribute full development duties to Namco staff members with all possible development roles listed. The only reference that hints at the involvement of the US studio is that the music and sound effects were done by Tommy Tallarico Studios, Inc., almost exclusively involved with Western developers, so it may be possible Namco mere co-developed the game and Flying Tiger's involvement is merely not mentioned.
