Recently an interesting item appeared on Amazon.Japan, a complete box set of most if not all of Cave’s current gen released shoot ’em up titles that appeared on the Xbox 360.

The 10 games in the collection as listed are: Deathsmiles, Espgaluda II Black LabelMushihimesamaMushihimesama Futari, Deathsmiles IIDoDonPachi ResurrectionDoDonPachi Resurrection Black Label, GuwangeAkai Katana, and Muchi Muchi Pork & Pink Sweets. It also comes with all the DLC for each game on 7 DVD discs; what a deal!

A few of these gems were localized, some were region free, but alas not all were so fortunate of either. It’s unknown if this collection will be region free. We also need to take into account that Cave is very determined to have their titles localized for the western regions. As a big fan of shmups and a big fan of Cave – who has played a few of these shining examples of bullet hell shooters – I’m strongly wishing it gets localized.

  • I really really hope that the collection gets localized as well, we don’t get enough shoot ’em up games in general.

  • Eugene Ng

    I agree, we need more shoot em ups and arcade games, that’s why I bought two copies of Akai Katana physical copy and one Games on Demand copy for double the support, Deathsmiles (both physical and GoD copies), Dodonpachi Resurrection, and BL, and of course, Guwange (haven’t played it yet). So its quadruple the support that I want this localised or better yet region free the game! It may be expensive but I’m investing in this awesome item! If not, importing!

  • Big fan of Cave, ever since I saw that “HARDEST BOSS EVER” video on youtube.
    Owning both Espgaluda and Mushihimesama, I’d still definitely buy this collection if it was localized. Even if it was just region-free, I’m sure I could figure my way around the menus soon enough.

    I hope Rising Star Games localise it, I can’t see anyone else doing it.

  • Protos Omega

    I own all the ones that can play on PAL consoles, so would get this if it runs on PAL consoles.

  • Localized or not, if this ends up being region free, I’m definitely grabbing it.
