Lords of Thunder, known as Winds of Thunder (ウィンズ オブ サンダー?) in Japan, is a shoot 'em up by Hudson Soft and Red Entertainment for the TurboDuo which was released in 1993. It was ported to the Sega Mega-CD in 1995. It was released on the Virtual Console on February 7, 2008 in PAL regions, February 11, 2008 in North America and in Japan on June 10, 2008. It is the unofficial follow-up to Gate of Thunder. The game is notable for its heavy metal soundtrack.
The game is centered around the world Mistral's confrontation with the re-awakened evil god Deoric and his dark generals who have torn the world asunder. With the armor of his ancestor Drac, the legendary knight Duran sets off to defeat Deoric's army in 7 different stages, the first six of which can be selected in a manner similar to Thunder Force III. Once the stage is selected, the player selects one of four armors to use, affecting his shots and bombs.
