Created by eccentric, fan-favorite Japanese developer TREASURE, Bangai-O Spirits for Nintendo DS is a re-imagination of their cult classic 90s videogame Bangai-O. Addictive, twitch-fest shooter gameplay includes punishing supermoves and a sensory overload of fireworks onscreen. More than 160 levels are seasoned with strategic and tactical elements, as well as TREASURE's signature quirky design style. Bangai-O Spirits boasts a powerful level editor tool, ad hoc wireless multiplayer for up to four players and the pioneering new Sound Load technology. This original technology allows DS gamers to swap levels, game footage replays or high score statistics by converting the data into a sound file that is output through the host DS speaker. Bangai-O Spirits is a high-quality, versatile title providing gamers of all skills levels with rock solid gameplay that's a total blast!

Powerful Level Editor - Use the DS touch screen and stylus to design and perfect your own original levels to play and share, either from scratch or by editing any of the 160+ existing levels in the game from the very beginning - you can essentially access the full game code from the moment you press 'start.'
Original Sound Load Technology Offers Infinite Possibilities - Swap levels, game footage replays or high score statistics by converting the data into a sound file that is output through your DS speaker.
