Anyone here enjoy shmup games? Today, Famitsu annouced that Cave is making a Mushihimesama Futari port for 360, (It's version 1.5, there is 3 versions of the game and each one plays different from each other)
No other information is known as of the moment. But at least you know a port is coming. If you're an hardcore shmup fan please pick up a copy. Its also going to be region locked, so you'll have to import a Japanese 360 in order to play.
A run down on the 3 versions of the game
There is 3 versions of the game available, I will cover what I know, when Cave first release the game, the game was quite incomplete, things such as Ultra Mode (Very Hard mode) is missing, and a proper scoring system is missing. Eventally a year later Cave release version 1.5 which included all the fix of version 1.0, this includes the weapons for each characters being tweaked and more balanced, Bosses having more dodgeable pattern, and fixed the scoring system (The Xbox version is based on 1.5). Then at the end of 2007, Cave release another version which is the Black Label version, Black Label made the 3 difficulty modes which play completely different from version 1.5 (It much easier from what I've Heard), the weapons modes are merged in Black Label, so your characters get twice the fire power. Also added a new True Last boss.
This game also got one of the hardest last boss in Shmup history
About two months ago, I posted a blog about my Mushihimesama Collection
. Its an amazing series that I forced myself to buy an arcade machine just so I can play Mushihimesama Futari ( I got Black Label version so its still unique).
