Keio Flying Squadron (慶応遊撃隊けいおうゆうげきたい - Keiōyūgekitai) in Japan, is a scrolling shooter game, originally released on the Sega CD peripheral, the Sega CD known in other regions as Mega CD, game developed by Victor Entertainment and being published by JVC Musical in America, Europe-Oceania and Japan in 1993 as an exclusive.
Its story is, the game is set in the Keio period during the Edo period of Japanese history. Seemingly a typical teenager, Raminana is only the keeper of the secret key to the treasure, but she is actually a descendant of aliens who came to earth in ancient times. She doesn't know how important the treasure is, and her domineering grandmother doesn't remember what secrets the key reveals. The key was stolen (Rami was in the local store, which was a popular place for teenagers at the time), and now she has to find it.
Dressed in a bunny costume, Rami rides into battle on the back of her trusty dragon, Spot, as she encounters enemies ranging from sea monsters to the U.S. Navy, the Russian army and the Lucky Seven, until she reaches the Doctor. Pon Eho, a raccoon, is considered the most intelligent creature on Earth, with an IQ of 1,400.
The game features Rami riding a Spot, which can shoot fireballs at enemies. When Spot is not firing, two smaller dragons (combat companions) appear one after the other to help Rami and Spot. The smaller dragons shoot smaller fireballs, can be sacrificed to cause more damage, and only reappear when the Spot stops shooting.
This game was very well received but got a lot of animation work, very characteristic music by a not very outstanding team, very excellent graphics, very comfortable mechanics and controls adapted to the 3 and 6 buttons.
The game is a very interesting part of its very interesting features, Next Generation reviewed the game, rating it with two out of five stars, stating that "this game has an extra star, because some parts made us laugh, but that's about it".
Roger Jackson, Tsukasa Tawada and Samantha Paris were in charge of the music, sound effects, SFx and custom voices characterized by the sound team dubbed in English, French and Japanese.
This game has the amount of 27 tracks on a 700 mb disc that is almost completely filled at very high quality, it has the Japanese cultural characteristic but very nice to a home console.
The audio development team was the same Japan Victor Corporation (better known as JVC) as developer Victor Entertainment.
