This game is a remake of the original 1986 arcade release of Fantasy Zone. It has two modes, "arcade" and "original", both sporting cell-shaded 3D graphics rather than 2D sprites and four new levels.
Original mode is notable for its 3D effects. After a boss is defeated, the camera pans to a third-person perspective behind Opa-Opa and a bonus mode is engaged, in which the player needs to avoid obstacles and collect coins as the boss slowly dies.
This version of the game adds four more stages, which will appear in Original mode when they are unlocked:
|This is the first, which counts as Round 8.|
|The second exclusive level, counting as Round 9. This level is built similarly to Dolimicca, in that all the bases are on the ground.
The boss is a circular being which fires in a number of directions, though each of its initial bullets split into four (and as it becomes more damaged, eight).
|The third exclusive level, counting as Round 10.|
|The fourth and final exclusive level, counting as Round 11. It is set underwater.
The boss is similar to that of Pocarius, with a bit of Tabas' boss thrown in.
