Dodonpachi Daioujou Black Label Extra won’t be coming home for Christmas. 5bp announced a last minute delay changing the Japanese release date from December 25 to a vague “this winter”.

Ketsui: Kizuna Jigoku Taichi Extra is sort of being delayed too. Ketsui, like Dodonpachi Daioujou Black Label Extra, is slated for “this winter” instead of January 29. I said “sort of” being delayed above since 5bp never sent out a formal press release marking January 29 as the day Ketsui: Kizuna Jigoku Taichi Extra would be in stores. However, they sent out marketing materials to retailers which ran with the date. Not all is lost for Japan’s shmup crowd they have other games like Raiden IV, Otomedius Gorgeous, and soon in the future Shooting Love 200X to play. Meanwhile, the only Xbox 360 shooter we’re 100% sure that’s coming to North America in the future is R-Type Dimensions.
