Capcom may not be in the good graces of fans any time soon, but supporting Japanese indies is a step in the right direction at least. The maligned giant has joined dōjin publisher Nyu Media in an effort to bring these "sewing circle" games to wider audiences through digital download services. 

Titles like the eXceed Collection, a trio of renowned bullet hell shooters developed by Tennen-sozai, are currently available through GameStopCapcom and GamersGate.
