Ketsui PS4 [Japan: 11/29/2018; IKD 2007 Special Ver DLC]

This is hopefully coming some time this year. I've heard there was a location test in Japan late last year? And there will be a new Arrange mode.

I hope the port is better than the X360 and PS3 versions, with proper slowdown emulation and ideally more visual options.

Update April-21-2018: Physical release announced; IKD 2007 Special Ver will be DLC.

I was looking through SIN's old blog posts and found this one full of interesting info. He mentions "Ketsui Blue Label", a version only playable at a Cave Matsuri years ago. Apparently Cave staffers referred to this as "Sports Ketsui", which annoyed Ikeda (he didn't like them to assign nicknames to games). Anyway, I wonder if there is a chance we could see this version in the upcoming PS4 port?

I wonder how close to this version you get if you just put Ketsui's difficulty up to hardest?  :P

Looks like the PS4 version is up and running and will be playable at the Cave Matsuri today:

It also sounds like we'll get some new info about the port today (judging by this tweet)

PS4 version of Ketsui will have the same framerate as the arcade PCB. :righton:

Ketsui IKD 2007 Special Version (2007 Cave Matsuri Ver) will be available as DLC. Also known as Ketsui Blue Label, or Sports Ketsui.  :righton:

-One loop.
-Doom appears at the end every time.
-Extends are at different point values.
-Chip values have been tweaked.
-And more!

Sweet! Nice to see one of the obscure matsuri games finally ported, but why DLC and not bundled with the disc release? reminds of the 360 times.

I guess it helps boost first week sales. Like, if you don't buy it on release you might miss out on the DLC (surely this will be DLC limited to the first print).

I wonder if the matsuri version of Ketsui could somehow be put on a rom to be used on the PCB? Like the Blue version of Guwange that was extracted from the XBLA port.

Well, they don't specify it is first print DLC, actually, so it might just be a paid item.

They'd have to be running it under emulation as opposed to porting it. I doubt they will do that but I hope they do. I think maybe Guwange Blue might have had to run that way if they didn't have the source code anymore.

This image was made by Ikeda to show M2 how perfect he wanted the PS4 port to be (in other words, a perfect port where you can connect one controller to the PCB and PS4 and the same movements appear on each screen).

M2 worked on this for over a year, and seem to have satisfied Ikeda's request.

There's a problem looming for quality ports like this, and it's the likes of Zerodiv buying the rights to Psikyo IP and knocking out a quick $8 port every couple of months.

Video of IKD 2007 Special Ver (the original PCB version, not the upcoming PS4 port):

In this version you only have one bomb per life, apparently.

Release date is November 29, 2018. It is called "Ketsui Deathtiny", a rather terrible Engrish play on "Destiny".  :facepalm:

Retail version is 6800 yen and includes two DLC: the IKD Special Ver and the Arrange soundtrack from DFK BL (by Virt). Each will be available for 800 yen if you buy the download version for 3700 yen.

Retail version (first print) also comes with a special 48 page booklet, contents to be revealed.

Preorders are up at Amazon JP. They won't ship it internationally yet, but keep checking, it usually takes a day or two for them to open up international shipping.

EDIT: The above link is for the game with the Amazon JP bonus. Just the game with the 48 page booklet can be shipped internationally.

Also, here's a picture of the game modes. Apparently "Deathtiny" is a game mode.  :laugh: Every time I see that I read it as "Death tiny", which is so nonsensical it makes me chuckle.

https://gematsu.com/2017/04/m2-announces-ketsui-m2-shottriggers-release-feveron-school

My god this is embarrassing.

"M2 also announced Feveron Gakuen, or Feveron School. Its platform was not announced. The game is a combination of Dangun Feveron and an academy-based visual novel, ... The main characters are female personifications of the player ships from Dangun Feveron."

We already have enough problems in the world, but Japan is making it worse by vindicating those guys who make a hobby of jerking off to female personifications of spaceships from a disco shooter.

Making a play on words in a language you can't speak... They should have taken the cue from Ichimen Bancho, now that was a great name.

Akihabara BEEP will be selling an exclusive edition that comes with a special replica Cave arcade box. It will probably have an M2 logo on it, like BEEP's PS4 Garegga box.

Not that I am aware of. I think you'll need to go through a middleman for this.

M2 has updated the Ketsui page to show the three shop-exclusive preorder bonuses. Unfortunately the Amazon bonus has still not been revealed, but Game Shop 1983 gets some M2 stickers and a Ketsui/1983 towel:

Bonuses have been updated.
Amazon now saying you'll receive an instruction card (replica of the arcade artset?)
No more towel at Game Shop 1983, but the sticker and a calendar?
