DoDonPachi Resurrection is a shoot ’em up video game developed and published by CAVE Interactive. The PC version is published by Degica Games, and the Switch version by Live Wire.


The legendary bullet-hell shoot ’em up series returns in the form of DoDonPachi Resurrection, the sequel to Blissful Death, packed with enough modes to satisfy the beginner all the way up to the hard core shooting fan and a fantastic musical score to boot.

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.
