 New Details and Images on Space Channel 5

Find out how Ulala plans to groove her way past the evil Moroliens this winter

October 11, 1999


If you've read our preview of Space Channel 5 you'll already be familiar with the wacky premise behind the game. You are Ulala, space reporter at Space Channel 5 in the year 2049. The Moroliens have invaded a space station, and people are being forced into endless dancing. Ulala must free the helpless space citizens, and defeat the aliens.

Our latest bit of information regarding this title concerns its various modes of play, including the Dance Battle Mode and the Shooting Battle Mode.





In the Dance Battle Mode, pictured above, the Moroliens will do a dancing pattern, and you must follow suite. So, if you see the Moroliens doing an "UP" "UP" "UP" pattern, you must do the same. The catch is that, in addition to simply inputting the buttons, you must do so in rhythm with how the Morliens did it. If successful in this mode, the people you helped will follow you.






In the Shooting Battle Mode, pictured above, you help people who've been forced to dance, and shoot the aliens. Shooting the aliens is achieved by pressing the A button, and helping people is achieved through the B button. Again, it seems that this mode is of the Simon says (Yikes - my boss's name is Simon!) variety, with your following the prompted actions.

Eventually, your battle will end, and you'll be treated to a charming little display, as Ulala struts, and can take the people she's saved along.





Be sure and check out our preview of the game for Colin's impressions direct from the Tokyo Game Show. The Moroliens will land in Japan this December, and we plan on being there.
