Senko no Ronde - 2010 Developer Interview
 
http://shmuplations.com/senkonoronde/ This interview with G.Rev director Hiroyuki Maruyama mainly covers the origins and design of the “vs. shooting” series Senko no Ronde, but also touches on some general questions about STG. Unfortunately, there is little detailed info about the gameplay design itself, and one senses that the interviewer was not especially familiar with the series.
