CAVE’s annual Shmup fest came to a close yesterday as the danmaku masters themselves announced that three of their most popular titles would be released for the 360 console.
The first 360 game shown at the event is the port of DoDonPachi Daifukkatsu Version 1.5 which is the fourth game in the DonPachi series not to be confused with DoDonPachi Daifukkatsu iPhone that is the fifth game in the series which is to be released on the Iphone (who would have thought).
The second 360 game announced is a port of both Pink Sweets and Muchi Muchi Pork on one disc. This is particulary interesting as they are both considered to be some of CAVE’s most imagniative and fun titles and they are both deserving of a wider recognition. The title is said to be announced for Spring 2011 and hopefully, region free along with DoDonPachi Daifukkatsu iPhone
Amoung the other announcements were that Guwange, the game confirmed for XBLA about a third of a month ago was playable at the event and has been confirmed for a late September/early October release, Feveron which is one of CAVE’s only games not to see a home console release after the initial arcade release has been confirmed to get a home console port 13 years after it’s original release. Better late than never I guess.
The last interesting piece of news is that Radio Allegy, a Shmup that was released on the Ultimate Shooting Collection for the Wii (and surprisingly got a US release) is getting a sequel called Radio Allegy Noah which should be released in Japan October 28th.
