Yu Suzuki was hesitant to call Air Twister as a Space Harrier spiritual successor



Quote
Suzuki said he has always had this idea for a fantasy shooting game, but back in the '80s the limited available tech led to Space Harrier.
In 2022, with the new tech and approach, his idea turned into Air Twister.
"This is my ideal fantasy shooting game. I think when you play it, you will see it has a much different feel," Suzuki said.
Suzuki did confirm the game can also be played with a controller, as well.

Indeed. I'm a fan of Chuchu Rocket too and the sequel (Chuchu Rocket Universe) was also Apple Arcade exclusive.
Double facepalm, lol.


Damn, sorry about that.

So Air Twister isn't a spiritual successor to Space Harrier, more of what Space Harrier should of been? Interesting.

Yes, but still "what Space Harrier should of been" years ago was kinda outdated, isn't it?
I'm sure Panzer Dragoon series and Planet Harriers have already covered that.
I'm still curious though.

I do like the design of it all. Yu Suzuki has a brilliant imagination when let loose. Very Fantasy Zone or Special Stage.

Interview with Yu Suzuki: Air Twister and His Return to Arcade Rail Shooters



Quote
As for music, the game’s debut trailer featured epic operatic music before switching to music that can only be described as sounding like the rock band Queen.
When we asked if this music is an indication of what we will hear throughout the game, Mr. Suzuki had this to say: “I asked the artist Valensia to do the music for this project. His fusion of rock, opera and classical music styles was the perfect fit for my ideal of the fantasy shooter.”

Without Apple, Yu Suzuki’s Air Twister would not have happened.

Yu Suzuki’s return to arcade gaming arrives today in the form of Air Twister, an Apple Arcade exclusive.
Now before you moan and groan about it being on Apple products only, it was Apple who asked him and his team for an arcade-style game.
Apple is also listed in the game’s credits as a producer. So without Apple, this game would not have happened.
