After a bit of a hiatus, Cave's highly regarded DoDonPachi series will be making it's return at the AOU2008 Amusement Expo on February 15-16. Well…sort of. It will be unveiled at the show. No word yet on whether or not it will be playable, however. It's been five years since the last installment in the DoDonPachi series, DoDonPachi DaiOuJou for the PS2 (one of my personal favorite shmups), so a new entry in the series is long overdue in my opinion. I just wonder what arcade hardware it will be running on. Atomiswave, or maybe Taito's X2? And more important than that, I wonder when or even if we'll see a home port. And if we do see a home port, how would it be released? Digital distribution might be good for a title like DoDonPachi, though I wouldn't mind seeing a disc-based release as well. One thing's for sure though. Whatever form it takes, more DoDonPachi is always a good thing.
