Cave Aims For Simultaneous Dodonpachi Saidaioujou Release In Japan And The West


Dodonpachi Saidaioujou debuted in arcades this past spring. The latest entry in the series is a vertical shooter like the other Dodonpachi games with a new dress system. Wearing military clothes gives your Elemental Doll a stronger spread shot. Everyday clothes powers up your laser, a piercing attack that does more damage, but has less range. Swimsuits are in the game for expert players.

Cave is working on an Xbox 360 version of Dodonpachi Saidaioujou and it’s slated for release in spring 2013. The core gameplay is complete, but game development manager Makoto Asada has something new planned for Dodonpachi Saidaioujou. "The arrange mode is something that’s atypical of the Dodonpachi we know," Asada said to Siliconera.

"Besides Rising Star, we are talking with another publisher who’s goal is to release Dodonpachi Saidaioujou for Xbox 360 on the same date in Japan and outside of Japan," Asada revealed.


We’re not sure who this publisher is, but dig the idea of a same day release for Dodonpachi Saidaioujou.
