Don't want to buy a Japanese Xbox 360, or import Cave's upcoming shooter, so you can play it on your TV? And you happen to be loaded and good at making arcade cabinets? Good news for you! Cave has listed an Akai Katana Shin PCB board for ¥220,000 ($2600).
The "PCB individual user version" features a Stage select, includes balance adjustments from the commercial PCB version, and features a higher difficulty setting in addition to the same difficulty level of the commercial version. You can also set it up for free-play of course, so none of that coin nonsense.
And for $2600, you also get a sword-shaped screwdriver for volume adjustment use. And a poster. Wooooop.
