Namco's Starblade coming back from the space junkyard, so many more still parked up

Ohh, I used to love StarBlade in the arcade when I was, um, younger.... Now the company has resurrected the trademark in the US. Which hopefully means a new space shooter is on the way. Could be any format, but the Vita could really do with some space action, until Lucas finally bothers to update X-Wing properly.

Of course, Starlight Inception is on the way for the Vita, but there are so many great games that need a revival, where are FreeSpace, Descent on modern console and all the others, and what the hell happened to Elite 4?
