Muchi Muchi Pork & Pink Sweets Now Even Sweeter As A Region-Free Release

By Spencer . December 7, 2010 . 2:10am

imageIn February, the maniac shooter maker said Espgaluda II would be their last region free game for the time being. We’re glad to say the time for region locked releases is up.


Muchi Muchi Pork & Pink Sweets will be region-free.


Makoto Asada, Producer at Cave, said to Kotaku, "We have received a lot of requests and support from overseas for our upcoming twin Xbox 360 shooter release: Muchi-Muchi Pork and Pink Sweets Double Pack. Next February marking a year since our last region-free package release, I have decided to release this pack region-free."


In addition to arcade ports of Pink Sweets and Muchi Muchi Pork, the Xbox 360 bundle also has a special version of Muchi Muchi Pork where you battle bosses from Pink Sweets. Look for the pastel pack of shooters at an import retailer near you on February 24, 2011.

    Anyone know who the character designer/artist for Ibara and Pink Sweets?
    I want to see more of his/her work and maybe buy an art book collection of works.

      Tomoyuki Kotani. You can try Gelbooru to see some of the artist’s artwork for Ibara and Mushihime-sama.

        Ah that never occurred to me to search on booru sites. Much obliged.

    Uhm, perhaps they noticed a pattern: region free on niche games = more sales.

    • mikanko

      They probably hoped more games would get licensed as Deathsmiles was. Daifukatsu or Deathsmiles IIX might still wind up being picked up by Aksys or someone, but Muchi Muchi Pork has an even less marketable aesthetic, and Pink Sweets is far more hardcore of a shmup than DS. Of all their games facing potential localization this combo pack is by far the least likely to get picked up.

        People had feelings that this would most likely be region free due to it’s nicheness and the fact that CAVE has been talking to overseas publishers about their other titles. DFK and DSIIX are the two most speculated titles.

        Good move on CAVE’s part.

        Does anyone know how well Espgaluda II sold compared to Mushihimesama Futari 1.5? Maybe the sales of the double pack will be around those two?

    Double awesome! Just ordered the other night. Thank Asada and his everchanging crazy hairstyle :)

  • fantastic! just pre-ordered, what’s with the 10 dollar price increase on play-asia?

    • malek86

      They tend to do that when a game is revealed to be region free. Already happened with Mushifutari.

  • …I dunno, that second sentence seems a little misleading. Like all of their future releases will be region free. That I really doubt.

    Either way, LE’s gettin’ preordered from AmiAmi VERY SOON.

  • I did my part with an email, gotta follow it up with a preorder!

    • Yup, just preordered the game! Can’t wait for this!

  • kelsniff
