DoDonPachi Saidaioujou Is an Arcade Game

Cave holding location test for arcade shooter next week.


Cave announced DoDonPachi Saidaioujou last week, but did not share details on the game. Today, we got a few first details via a press release announcing a location test for the game.

That's right, location test. That means DoDonPachi Saidaioujou is an arcade title. The location test will be held from February 3 through February 5 at Akihabara Hey.

The press release shared only a few details on the game. Saidaioujou will retain the basic gameplay of its predecessors, but will add new systems, including the mysterious "Dress System." Cave promises something cooler and more stylish than past DoDonPachi games.

On the staff side, we can look forward to music from Manabu Namiki, who's worked on past DoDonPachi and Death Smiles games, and character designs from illustrator Ryou Nagi, of Ar Tonelico and Steel Chronicle fame.

Cave says to expect a Spring 2012 arcade release for DoDonPachi Saidaioujou.
