About Thunder Force AC
A remake of Thunder Force III, Thunder Force AC marks the first time the popular shooter series found a home in the arcade scene. The long battle between the Galaxy Federation and the ORN Empire has reached the breaking point. As a last-ditch effort in their losing war, the Federation has created the FIRE LEO-03 STYX, a highly mobile fighter wielding the same amount of firepower as a large battleship. As pilot of the STYX, it’s up to you to secure victory for the Federation and return peace to the galaxy!
