All you bullet hellians will want to take note that Cave has released a trailer for their latest unpronounceable shoot-‘em-up, Dodonpachi Blissful Death. It’s a port of the 10-year-old Japanese arcade game DoDonPachi Dai Ou Jou, and it will be available sometime in February. Check out the strangely mesmerizing trailer below.
According to the game’s website, it will only be playable on fourth generation or newer versions of the iPhone/ iPod Touch, as well as the iPad 2. The price has not been announced, but most of Cave’s other games (Dodonpachi Resurrection, Deathsmiles, Espgaluda II, and Mushihimesama Bug Panic) are currently selling in the $7.99 – $11.99 range.
From the looks of the video, which sports some terrific Engrish tag lines, the bullets will fly at you in their usual thick swarms, and it will be all you can do to dodge them while sending your own waves of vollies back at the enemies. Thankfully for n00bs, several difficulties will be available, so you might at least have a fighting chance.
