They make it look like it's going to be the regular game... which would be pretty ridiculous playing on such a small screen.

edit: deleted my off-topic rambling

.....................what
 :oogle:
it says 2007 so I guess this site has been up for a while (?) but what the hell is it?

It's just a simple, meaningless English site. Lots of Japanese companies put one up, even small ones like Gulti. Doesn't mean much, they just put it up because they think it's expected in the 'global' world. Once they put it up they forget about it and move on.

judging by the trailer it indeed looks like a port with simplified bullet patterns. i'll be all over this if that's the case.

Probably doesn't mean anything new as you got the teaser site already. I like that they sound serious that this is gonna be downloadable from anywhere.

In my experience there's very few software packages that are not downloadable everywhere.  Kindle was one... I wanted to try it out, too.

Yeah. Figured it'd be so recent that that kinda digital mentality is still iffy.

It was like three or four years ago I thought it was lucky we got a chance to play Gradius Neo outside Japan. I don't think Cave's DonPachi mobile version ever left Japan region. Not sure.

Buuuut, the other question is has Cave ever had a dedicated official English news channel? That Eng twitter feed announcement was pretty delightful, even though it probably won't amount to very much.

Cave putting together an English news feed is actually very exciting.  It shows that they're taking their stated "international approach" somewhat seriously.  I will admit that this post is sprinkled liberally with wishful thinking.

I guess I should be excited for the opportunity to play Galuda II on the go, but I know it's going to control like shit. Someone should make a dpad for the iPhone/iPod that plugs into the bottom.

We need something official so developers will support it, but that is interesting.

Tipped kotaku on this earlier today and they ran the article...siliconera also just covered it.  It may not be a "proper" introduction but at the very least it will allow western audiences to sample one of Cave's better games on the cheap.  It will also shut fucking touhou fanboys the hell up.  I am so sick of hearing touhou fans spew shit like "touhou is soooo much harder" when it is obvious they've never played a Cave game.  Imperishable Night is a stupidly easy 1cc.  ESOD and PCB are slightly harder...but I still didn't feel like I had to really work for them.

That's incredible! The ipod is so crap for games standard with just the touch screen, such a good idea that iControlPad.  :righton:

Out Saturday?! Jesus.

Also, under "compatible devices" it says it's only compatible with the 3GS and the new iPod touch... Does that mean I can't fucking play it?

That's really annoying... It's probably ok though as I've yet to play a shmup that I like on the phone.

Have fun come saturday  :-\

Cave's response on Twitter about only allowing GaludaII for 3GS iphones:

"@ookitarepanda  @SilentHitoshura  @BenParfitt Sorry to disappoint 3G users, but a shooter like ESGPGALUDA II require lots of memory.... Perhaps it's a good opportunity to pick up the new version of the iPhone this summer!"
