Like any good Eastern underdog console, the Japanese Xbox 360 has proven itself this generation's machine of choice when it comes to shmups. With massive support from developers like Cave, it's become a magnet for STGs and the players who love them, and next in line to add to its already amazing library is a new shooter based on Fumikane Shimada's Strike Witches.

At an event in Tokyo today to promote the Strike Witches anime, attendees were given a pamphlet to confirm the game and its support for Xbox Live. A nekomimi, WWII Mecha Musume, low-leg panties, nopan loli witch anime STG is about as Japanese as you can get, and while many of us have been hoping and praying for more of these shmups to make their way stateside, you can bet your sweet ass this won't be one of them.
