NG Dev Team has released a new gameplay trailer for NEO XYX, its upcoming Toaplan-styled shoot-'em-up for the Sega Dreamcast and SNK's Neo Geo MVS and AVS.

One thing you'll notice right away is that NEO XYX is fast. The screen scrolls at a brisk clip, especially when compared to the leisurely pacing common to the genre. While many similar games let tough enemies linger on the screen for several seconds so that they can spray bullets at you, NEO XYX seems to take a different tactic, forcing players to rely on their reflexes as bullets and enemy ships zoom past at alarming speeds. Looks like a fun challenge!

NEO XYX will launch in April for the Neo Geo MVS (arcade system), followed by a Dreamcast release in June. Preorders are now open for all versions, including a collector's edition limited to 300 units.
