Dodonpachi Daifukkatsu probably coming to Europe.

Some Belgian wholesaler apparently has Cave's Dodonpachi Daifukkatsu listed as coming out there October 15. This is obviously just a rumour until we hear from either the developer or the publisher, but it's very likely to be true. The PAL version of Deathsmiles was a success, and Rising Star Games have been hinting a new Cave localization. 
Great news!

Good find!

The game has now been removed from the wholesaler's site. Take that as you will. Also, I came across a French news article, almost two weeks old, claiming a localized version of the game will be released in October "according to Rising Star Games".

Cool, I guess DeathSmiles did well for them then. I didn't touch it but I'd be down for some Dodonpachi.

They say they're aiming for November.

This is awesome. I hope they will bring even more of these games to europe. I prefer vertical shmups so deathsmiles wasn't for me.

Here's the official trailer, full of blurry, stretched footage of the game: 

As you can see at the end they've chosen to use the gorgeous Japanese Limited Edition box art.
