I am a little late on this as i wanted to research it a little if I could find the time but forum member Molloy pointed out that the new shmup DoDonPachi Dai Fukkatsu was released in Japan this week and for those who love their shmups loaded with bullet hell patterns and lots and lots of firepower, this is a game for you. Interestingly enough it reminds me a little bit of Mars Matrix which I got a chance to play today although there are some obvious differences between the two. Embedded below is a video of the game in action, reports suggest that this one is for casual players of the series and you receive more bombs than in previous installments of the game but from the video it looks like there is enough going on to keep shmup fans of any kind happy.

    Mars Matrix is as hardcore as they come. Scares the hell out of even the most dedicated of shmup fans. Might need to fiddle around with the dip switches and set it to an easier setting.

    Cave (who developed DoDonPachi series) make some incredibly pretty games. It’s a shame that their games don’t make it over to western arcade locations more frequently because the screenshots really don’t do them justice.
