A remake of Space Firebird titled Space Demon (スペース デーモン?) was released by Nintendo and was licensed to Fortek. In this arcade game, a spacecraft larger than the one in Space Firebird becomes lost and falls victim to the horrifying Space Demon and its allies. Players have to battle their way through the Demon's forces by shooting all of the satanic enemies including the Space Demon as they appear on the screen. Like Space Firebird, Space Demon also allows players to make the main ship dodge from left to right and use the Warp Shield once every mission to zoom ahead and take out enemies by ramming into them.
