Crimzon Clover, a rather popular doujin (Japanese indie) shoot-’em-up, can now be played in arcades in Japan. This bullet-hell shooter was originally released in 2011 for Windows by one-man developer Yotsubane. The game is known for its excellent visuals and Layer Section-esque lock-on system. It also features a “Break Mode,” which powers up the player’s ship or allows it to unleash a devastating bomb attack.
In addition to being rebalanced, the arcade version of Crimzon Clover makes use of Taito’s NESiCAxLive network features. Hopefully, Yotsubane will also create a patch for the Windows version or even port the arcade version to consoles so players will be able to enjoy the new arcade features at home.
