DoDonpachi Daifukkatsu gameplay footage, reviews and pics

The responses on the boards have been fast and furious as more information leaks out of the 2008 AOU Show. Both (formerly Danmaku Dreamer) and Shmups! Forum have the best information as well as video footage and pics.

GP, aka Gaijin Punch on the forums and site guru over at was at the AOU show and posted a fantastic review of DoDonpachi Daifukkatsu and a bit about the show in general. Do yourself a favor and check it out.

From early game play footage, it looks like the dolls are actually the stage bosses this time around rather than pilots and they pop up on the screen when the boss ship is destroyed.

The gameplay is fairly reminiscent of Dai-Ou-Jou and the bullets patterns don't look too far removed from those difficult spreads. It does remind me a bit of Mushihimesama, though and I would hope that the difficulty isn't set too high to get more players interested.

Gigazine has some good footage and pics, though I'm sure if you stay tuned to the two previously mentioned forums as well as, you should get new stuff fairly frequently.

EDIT: There is also a FIVE-MINUTE video on youtube with some really good footage here:

Rumor has it that the guy with the beard is none other than GP himself. You can see whoever it is knows DOJ well as they are feathering that shot to keep the hit counter up.

Damn, I'm so stoked for this game.
