A genre that seems to be growing on the DS is the Shoot-em-up. This year we have already had the excellent Nanostray 2, sure it was generic but it was fun. The we had the awesome "Space Invaders Extreme" in Japan. Next week we'll have Metal Slug rip off "Commando: Steel Disaster" & in July "Metal Slug 7" is released in Japan. But then what?

This:


Love this music!

Originally an Japanese Arcade game from 2002, this was announced a while back but now a date has finally been announced, October 23rd. At the moment its only for Japan but lets be honest you don't need to know Japanese for this game. So while I wait for this & the others, I'll play some shooters on NeoDS.

I'm a great fan of Cave's shoot-em-up... It's still called Ketsui: Death Label or it's now only Ketsui DS?

Because if it's called "Death Label" it's gonna be a boss-only port of the arcade :/

This happened with Dodonpachi Dai-Ou-Jou. There was a Death Label version which only had the bosses...

It appears to be just Ketsui DS now but it does look a lot like its the same thing.

Considering how much Japanese guys love bullet hell shmups, I'm surprise the DS isn't full of games like this. Not my sorta thing but this is gonna sell gazillionz in Japan.

Just saw this on Siliconera

"Ketsui puts players inside a helicopter with floating gunpods. Take your pick between the Tiger Schewert (spread shot / slow movement) and the Panzer Jager (straight shot / faster movement) for the single player mode. Once you beat the Ketsui Death Label in a single credit you can film the achievement and send it to another DS owner to watch wirelessly. Ketsui Death Level also includes game sharing, which allows distribution of a trial version of the game.

Other new features besides wireless communication include: a versus model, a training mode and unlockable Evac Reports. There’s the full arcade game in Ketsui Death Label too and a DVD with a power play of the game. This sounds like a sweet package, if it’s the right price. Arika has not announced how much the game will cost. However, we should know well before October 23, the day Ketsui Death Label arrives in Japan. At this time there aren’t any announced plans to bring Ketsui outside of Japan."

So it is called Ketsui Death Label, but also includes the full arcade game too. Perhaps a must have import.

I've been watching this on dsfanboy. It looks awesome as far as Shmups I've seen on a handheld but holy shit, that looks way out of my leauge. I'll be surprised if I could pass the first level. So I think this will be something I'll just sit on with the rom. I'm still yet to beat Contra 4 on normal ;(

I'm not a big fan, but a fan. I've only played Imperishable night. But I did beat it on hard without continuing before. I liked it.

I don't really call this game fun. Dodging millions of bullets on screen by learning fiendish attack patterns. Bring back the 'old' school 2D shooters.
