A New Cave Teaser Site Opens

By Ishaan . February 5, 2011 . 4:31pm

Cave have a new teaser site open for an upcoming game, scheduled to be revealed in 13 days on February 19th. Why that date specifically? Because it’s when Cave are holding an event in Japan this year that they say will bring important announcements.


Last we heard, Cave were developing an original title for the Xbox 360, but there’s no way to be sure if this is it or not. Curiously, the teaser site’s URL has “gameonline” and “adventure” in it…

    Those URLs aren’t as nice as if — Guaranteed US Release — was within the titles.

  • Only one guy, huh? Sakura Wars shmup?

  • PrinceHeir

    oh man why can’t cave release some of their shumps on the PS3 and Wii.

    hopefully in the future though.

  • DarkWaterClone

    I so hope it is a NGP game. It is probably to early to talk about a game for the NGP. So I hope it will be a PS3 version instead. Plus if it says this new game will not stay only in Japan then that would be swell.

  • JustaGenericUser

    Wonder what it is. If it turns out to be really interesting I’m going to be disappointed (I don’t have a 360).

  • ASDF could mean that this is a PC game.

  • mmmmyeah, just slide it in gently, Cave. This is gonna be sooooooo good.

    And this is a 360 adventure game ppl. It hasn’t been officially announced but Asada hasn’t been secretive about working on it. He’s even stated that he wants to include a playable Dodonpachi within it.

      A playable Dodonpachi? Oh yes.

      But if this is an adventure game, maybe it might actually be localized.

      IIRC Cave said a while ago that they were going to make a original 360 game instead of an arcade port, my guess is that this is it.

      • Well, I kind of remembered wrong so I wasn’t totally factual with what I said. Asada is working on an adventure game but 360 hasn’t been confirmed, was just my assumption.

        We do know that they have an original game coming for XBLA (on top of a port, was confirmed in Famitsu 360) but that doesn’t mean that this is it because they also have a retail game to announce at the same event so it’s hard to say what platform this will be for, just that it’s an adventure game.

        Notice that more and more of the image is being revealed each day. Shouldn’t be much longer before we can guess the title.

  • I am going to be blown out of the water if this turns out to NOT be a shmup.

    • TrevHead

      You just might be as Cave does other things apart from making shmups, like puzzle, mobile and mmo like a Shin Megami Tensei mmorpg called image online, They also have their fingers in other non gaming business like jewelry.

      So this upcomming game could be anything. My guess is a visual novel / shmup hybrid

    Sigh, another game that would definitely got character and game design that I would love but sadly not getting it.

    More because it would be only in XBox 360 (which I don’t have and my pocket wasn’t deep to buy one) and SHMUPS (or bullet-hell, as most people would call) are not my kind of thing. Sure, I love 2D run-and-gun games like Metal Slug or the fast-paced 3rd-person action/shooting game Vanquish but these bullet-hell games are too hardcore that I felt like I instantly hit the “brick-wall” in just the 1st or 2nd stage.

    Maybe it’s just me but every time I tried to play one (through arcades or in emulators), I always thought that these games won’t like to welcome noobies. Am I the only one who is like this towards SHMUPs? Do you SHMUP fans had that kind of experience before you appreciate these kind of games? Do I need some kind of psychiatrist? And no, I’m not really ranting toward SHMUP, it’s just that I want to like them but I just can’t.

    • They wouldn’t be any fun if they were easy. Part of the satisfaction stems from finally pulling off a 1CC after hours and hours of dying mid-way. Some are more noob friendly than others, sure, but they would be boring if there was no challenge.

      But this one is definitely an ADV, not a shmup. Hope Aksys picks it up.

    What’s up with the Persona-ish picture?

    • Yeah, that’s what immediately thought when I saw this… For a split second I thought it was news on Persona 5… :(

      But this game looks very intriguing… Here’s futilely hoping for a UK release!

  • Trisagion

    Hope this is a new franchise and not an MMORPG.

    ASDF :(
    Guwange 2 please :D

  • Ten bucks its going to be a disappointing looking browser game.

  • I’m still going to say this is going to be a shump with girls, even with the words “gameonline” and “adventure” thrown in.
