Cave gets representation in Neptune Mk2

Apparently just revealed.

EDIT: More info.

Cave-chan is a shooter in the Leanbox Special Forces, and flies about the country of Leanbox and maintains the peace. She's friends with 5pb-chan and Chika-chan, who are from the same country.

For this character reveal, Dengeki PlayStation got commentary from Makoto Asada, development head at Cave. He'd been expecting a macho character, but was surprised to find the character is actually a cute girl.

Got a little more info, including a quick (non-quoted) word from Asada himself. Added it to the main post, but posting to bring it to the attention of those who have already looked.

And now she'll be a playable character.

Damn, that special attack is pretty cool.

I'm sure no one else cares, but if anyone besides me bought this, the DLC list for the NA version has been posted. We get Cave (and Falcom) next week.

Cool reference. Reminds me of AI while having the attitude/voice of Shooty.

Been waiting around for these games to get lower in price, but I don't think I'll find em for anything less than retail.  :laugh:

Picked Cave up last night.

Her default weapon is "Scissors." It's Casper's weapon. The description is "Legends say that a necromancer from a certain nation used a weapon just like this." Her other equipment is an Imp Bangle that apparently has "owl and bat decorations", an Awakening Ring that "makes your enemies appear to move extremely slow", and an Element Suit and Element Garb.

All of her weapons appear to be either Casper's scissors or Windia's... whatever that is (was hers supposed to be a sword?). She also has three costumes available in the shop: Black Label, Princess Bug, and DoDonPachi Go!. I don't have the money for them, though, so I don't know what they look like yet. Each one also has a corresponding head decoration: Black Garb, Forest Garb, and Revival Garb.

Her special attack from the above video (if you couldn't hear her say it) is Black Label. "Cave's supermove. Please note that this is an uncalled-for barrage that will turn even despair into nothingness."

Cave only has two of her EX Finish moves at default. One of them is White Owl. "Create a freezing tornado using the powers of a snow owl."

I'm fairly happy that so many of her references are Deathsmiles.

I bought the one of costume DLCs for Cave, "Cave's Death Smile Set". It's a Casper outfit. Looks wonderful with her Casper-type weapon <3

Can't really find a picture of the Windia weapon.

I still haven't had the chance to check out her outfits yet. I'm really digging her as a playable character though. She's freakin' strong, and never gets hit.  =D
