    Won’t cave ever make a Shmup for PS3?

      • Ceci “Ruzuzu” Kiyomizu

        I think it does :3

        I guess, Though sadly i don’t think it will get localized like the Xbox360 ones

        • TrevHead

          Even the 360 ports have stopped been localised to PAL / US. Which is a shame as I would have thought CAVE could have atleast gone down the double pack route rather than leave some money on the table.

      • No

        Technically, that’s 5pb doing this, but it’s a Cave game anyway!

    Oh hey, Hirano Aya is voicing that purple haired girl. I guess she’s still doing VA, which is nice to know.

  • CirnoLakes

    Awwwww, she has a teddy bear.

    Never pilot genocidal war ships to secure an unfortunate militant future for a crazed misanthropic colonel without one!

    argh, AmiAmi’s LE is sold out for the time being, can’t believe I missed it when it first went up.. wonder what other goodies come w/ the “Super Limited Edition”.. both have the steelbook case.. Still need to grind for Ginga Force..

    • superdry

      The Super limited edition seemed to have sold out everywhere really quick. Besides steelbook, it comes with two soundtracks (original and arrange) and I think two books.

      I might be just getting the limited edition since that one is still available. End of May cannot come fast enough.

      • AweOfShe

        I think the LE and SLE books are two different sizes. (B6 vs A4?)

        • superdry

          Ah, you’re right. One book A4 + unspecified extra(s). I thought I came across something that mentioned two books in the super limited edition.

      • Aoshi00

        Doh.. I kept typing in Dodonpachi into AmiAmi from time to time and pre-order wasn’t up yet, and now it’s sold out alrdy.. guess I would have to keep refreshing and hope that they have more copies or some might drop theirs, that’s how I got the Metal Gear Rising LE.. Super’s like 3000 yen more than LE.. it’s funny they have Super Limited Edition now, not just LE lol.. I still have Ginga Force and Caladrius first.. The regular cover w/ the girls i kinda cool too..

        • superdry

          Amiami updates a lot of their listings when I’m a sleep…so I totally missed out on it when I woke up a few hours after it went up.

          Then again, I’ve missed out on pre-orders for various things from JP stores when I am up and see the listing like a few minutes after it goes up.

  • No

    Can’t wait! Got my Super Limited Edition on pre-order. Now to wait… the looong wait.

  • TrevHead

    Can’t say I like the vid but I’m still chomping at the bit to experience that CAVE gameplay.

  • Göran Isacson

    Ha ha, way to zoom the camera so close that one can’t even see all dat gorgeous bullet hell. But hey, who would want to see actual shmup-game play when we can focus on cute little girls :D ?

  • (Cries because doesn’t own a 360 anymore)

  • It’s honestly been too long for me since I last heard a badass Japanese song like this one in a game…

  • Sergio Briceño

    Catchy theme song.

  • fireemblembeast

    Nice opening (I recognized Aya Hirano’s voice right away), but I have to say, that is a kind of hard-to-remember title, even for me… >_<
