Japanese developer Cave announces shooting game for Windows Phone

Cave is a Japanese developer best known for its 2D shoot-em-ups. On Xbox 360 they are responsible for Death Smiles, Nin2 Jump, and other hardcore games. Several of Cave’s shooters have even made it to iPhone. Will those games ever come to Windows Phone?

Chances are certainly improving, as the developer announced today that they are working on an original shooting game for WP7. No screens or details are available, but it’s about 20-30% completed. The unnamed game hasn’t been announced as an Xbox Live title, but it seems likely given the number of Xbox 360 titles they have published so far. Today’s announcement also makes Cave one of the precious few Japanese game developers to support Windows Phone at this stage. Let’s hope more – especially Square Enix – will follow!

Windows Phone gamers who are hungry for some Japanese-style shooter action right now may want to give Corona (from indie developer Kajak Games) a shot. It’s very much in the style of a Cave game and has fantastic art. The full version of Corona is here (Zune link) on the Marketplace, and there is also a free version.

Awesome news! I've been playing some old Genesis shmups recently and remembering how much I love the genre, even though I kinda suck at it. Great to hear Cave is onboard.
