Would love to see some CAVE games on the Switch. I know, I'm probably dreaming ;)

Do you have any numbers on how Steam is doing in Japan? Also makes me wonder if there's new demand for PC parts over there, and who is supplying them.

Finally picked this up + DLC :oops:

The two DLC characters are a lot of fun. It makes me smile to see CityConnection/Jaleco take the piss out of themselves and Jaleco's infamous track record in these recorded asides, especially with Homura Banto (cheeky name :wink: ) explaining how his series showed how Jaleco really 'thought outside the box' when it came to making janky sports games. After listening to that, seeing his charge attack brought it all together.

Is it my eyes, or is there a bilinear filter over some game modes? I'm still trying to get everything to look good on PC. Using the new characters (or old ones) in the Arcade+ is plenty fun, as is revisiting the classic console mode with a translated story.

The base game offered is a great package, and a much-needed antidote to Saturn gouging. I don't know of any differences between this arcade version and the original yet (the game itself says "almost exactly how it was", ha ha), but it is great to have a game offers pretty close to how I remember the Saturn port, plus new bells/whistles.

Wasn't this getting a physical release in the USA? I see LRG tweeted about it some time ago, strangely silent since then.
Elsewhere there is rumor that the physical release was not going to include an actual game but rather just bonus stuff and digital download.
What's up?

PC is really not a big deal in Japan, which is odd considering how massive the doujin scene is...

Can't imagine them doing a physical release without the game. What I would be worried about is the manual quality, since they didn't bother fixing any of Caladrius PS4's Engrish manual.

None that I can share!

I enjoyed that element too. There's even a 'mistake' when City Connection's name is announced (it's random, so you'll need to boot the game a few times to catch it).

You can try switching the Screen options between Dot by Dot and stretch, but I don't think filtering was used this time.

Yes, and it still is, both standard (game disc only) and the 'Paradise Box' (disc + lots of extras).

Bullet Heaven review is up.

One error I noticed: the 40-50K high-value eggplants do NOT appear at random. They show up when you destroy any target that normally drops a "standard" eggplant when you've built up your chain to 10,000, so the trick is to reveal a couple of "regular" eggplants, collect them in succession to build the chain, then quickly destroy as many other targets as you can before the chain runs out and the value resets.

By the way, has a final price not yet been set for the physical editions, or am I overlooking it?

Eggplants > exactly!
Trivia: The medium size bonus items are worth 48050 points due to the phonetic pronounciation of that number being close to 'Jaleco' in Japanese.

Pricing > not announced yet; that will be alongisde the date and final reveal of everything that's included with both editions.

???

Phonetic pronounciation in which language ?

48050 = yonmanhachisengojuu

Looks quite different than Jaleco. Or I am missing something ?

Someone better learned in Japanese maybe could tell us how it can be spelled another way ?

That one is a bit cryptic. I'm guessing it's something along the following lines:

4 = し
8 = や
0 = れい
5 = ご

しやれいご > じゃれ(い)こ > じゃれこ (Jaleco)

Sounds right to me.
I'd guess the last zero is either ignored or take as 'oh'.
Japanese is often pretty 'flexible' with phonetics for numbers when someone needs them to be read in a certain way :)

You got it right ! I didn't think of reading each number separately !
I did not not that 8 could be pronounced ya. Maybe some a shorter form of ha(chi) ?

This one is really geeky.

I'm still really confused about what content is exclusive to what version. I bought the game on PSN before Degica intended for people to buy it (whoops) and then didn't touch it after hearing about the impending Special update. Is there a way for me to get the Tatsujin ship? Or do I need to wait for the LRG special edition and rebuy the game? I don't really like to support LRG but I also don't want to miss out on actual game content either. All the different physical and digital versions have made this pretty confusing.

I got this version - https://www.play-asia.com/game-tengoku- ... /13/70c9e5

Tatsujin ship came as a DLC code.

I paid like half that price though so no idea what's going on with Play Asia.

I don't know why, but I find the part where Yuki tries to greet the player in English pretty funny.

Glad to hear it comes with the code. It looks like Play-Asia actually has THREE versions of the game, including a special edition from 2017 which is more expensive than the newer special edition (and the new one seems to come with way more stuff). I had no idea there were two special editions in Japan.
