Before hearing about the Xbox 360 ports of Ketsui and DoDonPachi Dai Ou Jou Black Label, I wasn’t aware of 5pb. After looking at their list of adventure-style roots I’m pretty surprised they decided to tread into new territory with arcade shmup ports.
At least their first titles will be well equipped with a replay mode where players can save data of their best runs. It is unclear if 5pb will have some kind of online community where these videos can be shared, but both titles will include Xbox Live connectivity through online leaderboards. Speaking of DoDonPachi Dai Ou Jou Black Label, 5pb plans to cash in on microtransactions too by selling themes and icons.
