Strong Start For DoDonPachi Resurrection iPhone
App tops charts in Japan, reaches second in America.
Looks like iPhone users throughout the world love themselves some vertical shmup. Cave shared early sales stats for the iPhone/iPod touch version of DoDonPachi Resurrection today, and the game appears to be off to a strong start.
Since its August 26 release, Resurrection's sales have reached the 30,000 mark. In Japan and Hong Kong, the game reached number 1 in the AppStore's paid app chart. In America, France and China, it reached 2.
Like Espgaluda II before it, Resurrection replicates the arcade shooter experience on the iPhone. Cave has included a direct port of the arcade version along with a special "iPhone" mode.
