Ketsui: Death Label was an appetizer. Ketsui: Kizuna Jigoku Taichi Extra is the real thing and it’s coming out about a month after Dodonpachi Daioujou Black Label Extra on January 29. That’s for Japan only right now. I know that sounds disappointing, but Game Star’s retail listing suggests we’re going to see Ketsui published overseas. According to Game Star’s description of Ketsui: Kizuna Jigoku Taichi Extra has worldwide rankings. 5pb wouldn’t bother to put in worldwide ranking unless they were thinking about publishing it in other regions. Interestingly, Dodonpachi Daioujou Black Label Extra also has worldwide leaderboards. Otomedius G doesn’t. This seems like a sign that 5pb’s Cave games are going international so if you might not have to buy a Japanese Xbox 360 Arcade bundle just to play these games after all.
