There is a game, currently up for voting on Steam Greenlight, that will force you to buy an extra screen (or replace yours with a super wide one). The game is called Super Chain Crush Horizon and (obviously) is an horizontal shmup from Japanese indie developer Mindware, and it features a native resolution of 3200 x 800! Yep, that’s huge! Here’s the press release.

3200 x 800 Adrenaline ! Blow away all standards with shooting on a galactic scale !

WILL WORK WITH ONE MONITOR! TWO IS BEST BUT NOT NEEDED!

A PC game with a stunning 3200×800 pixels for ultra widescreen shooting! Create the longest series of chained explosions ever seen on this massive screen! Completely fill your gigantic ultra charge shot gauge to unleash a massive explosion 2000 pixels wide! It blows away all standards and crushes the competition! Introducing Super Chain Crusher Horizon!

Curious about the game? Or about the above picture featuring two monitors from one of the producers of the game? Let’s take a look at the official trailer then!

Ok, everything’s nice…but what about a screen like this, to avoid the gap between the two monitors? Anyway, if you’re interested, you can buy the game here.

DoDonPachi Saidaioujou for Xbox 360 will be region free

13 May

DoDonPachi Saidaioujou

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:

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.

DoDonPachi Saidaioujou will be released on May 30 and for now you can pre-order it from Play-Asia or Ami-Ami.
