Cave shoot ’em up DoDonPachi Resurrection will launch for PC via Steam this October, the game’s newly opened Steam page reveals.
The game, which is currently available for Xbox 360 in Japan and Europe, was announced for a PC release by Degica Games back in April.
Here’s an overview, via the Steam page:
The past is being altered. An android, known as Next EXY, has traveled one thousand years back in time. Your task is to stop NEXY and the other Elemental Daughters who were built in the image of the Elemental Dolls who once protected humanity. What is NEXY’s intent? Should you attack what you shouldn’t understand? Orders are orders, and Col. Godwin Longhener is not to be ignored.
The legendary bullet-hell shoot-’em-up series has come to Steam with DoDonPachi Resurrection from CAVE Co., Ltd., the powerhouse behind revered bullet-hell shooters such as Mushihimesama and Deathsmiles.
