Cave announces Mushihimesama HD

2004 bullet hell favourite gets Xbox 360 revival.

2004 arcade shoot 'em up Mushihimesama is getting an HD makeover for Xbox 360, bullet hell specialist Cave has announced.

According to Andriasang's translation of a blog post on the developer's official site, Cave itself is in charge of the new version, unlike the 2005 PlayStation 2 port.

Producer Makoto Asada hinted that some extra content might be added, though didn't confirm a launch date or plans for a Western release.

The blog post also mentions impending Japanese Xbox Live Games on Demand releases for Deathsmiles and Mushihimesama Futari - the aforementioned's 2006 sequel.

The next Cave title confirmed to be heading to these shores is Akai Katana, due on Xbox 360 in the first half of this year.
