Hey shmup nerds, we got a really good news for you all!
After Rising Star Games‘ announcement about their decision to not release any other Cave’s shooter in the west due to poor sales, we all lost hope to play all the upcoming bullet hells from the well-known Japanese software house.
But thing are getting better as Cave itself tweeted this last week:
Xbox 360 怒首領蜂最大往生は海外の本体でも遊んで頂くことができます♪

As usual, we know Japanese language could be a bit tricky, so everything you need to know is that DoDonPachi Saidaioujou for Xbox 360 will be region-free! This is an amazing news, and we’re all glad to Cave to allow us western players to enjoy their upcoming arcade port for the Xbox 360.
Obviously it will be a bit more expensive than a theoretical PAL/NTSC-U version, due to the import status and all the shipping costs, but still at least we got the chance to play it.
