Cave fans, give yourselves a round of applause. We told you a while back that Makoto Asada had said the region code for the company's upcoming Mushihime-sama Futari Ver. 1.5 for Xbox 360 had yet to be decided. Michael McWhertor over at Kotaku had a chance to speak with Asada at TGS, and asked if the game would be region-free. His response?

"We had a lot of good feedback from overseas users, so for this time, as a test, we're going to make the game region free so that overseas users can play it."

Hell yes. Not only will Mushihime's overseas sales directly affect the company's decision to knock off the region-locking in the future, but Asada went on to say that if it performs well outside of Japan, they may even localize and export upcoming projects officially.

"By making Mushihime-sama Futari region-free, what we're doing is measuring the amount of overseas users, this will have a direct impact on whether Espgaluda II and other titles will be localized for America. So it's probably a good idea to pick it up!"

Yes. Yes, it is. So if you've been emailing Cave and holding on to hope like I have, it was not in vain. Now you need only hit Play-Asia or wherever it is you import your games from, and enjoy. Thanks to everyone who joined the cause, and to McWhertor for popping the question. Hooray!
