Mushihimesama Futari 1.5 XBox 360 preview



Rarely do I post something like this, but it got me pretty excited to say the least. I owned the pcb for a while - my first full kit in fact - but never really connected with it at the time and I reallly have wanted to go back and see if it clicks.

It's old news to the shmup community that this is comming (late November) to the XBox 360 in Japan, but the gameplay and graphics look so stunning as to make me want to get a JP 360 to play this on - crappy hardware and importation costs be damned.

It doesn't hurt that the Deathsmiles port is stellar on the 360 or that ESPGaluda II is also coming with DFK an almost certain 2010 title and a possibility of Guwange (!!) hitting LiveArcade.

Check out this preview and see what awesomeness Cave is unleashing on us STG-crazed gamers. Follow the link to watch it in HD as well.

And the other good news is that is is going to be region free! :) No need for importing a NTSC-J Xbox360!

Man - that is awesome! Now, if they can re-release Deathsmiles over here the same way...

I would love that too :) If making Mushi region-free is a succes for CAVE, they'll probably make the upcoming Espgaluda II region-free as well, I think.

Yeah, I'd hope so. I think by now they realize that getting a publisher on the west probably won't happen and this is the only way to get their games over here to the fans that want them.

Man, think of all the games they could do this too - DKF, MMP, etc. Like Am/Pm - too much good stuff!

Cross my fingers for all those games. I'll buy them on day one!
