Last month developer CAVE revealed that they were working on an original game for iOS devices starring Bug Princess Reco from the Mushihimesama series of console and arcade games called Mushihimesama Bug Panic. In our post about this news, there was very little in the way of gameplay shown in the teaser trailer provided by CAVE. A video we discovered later and added to the post was from all the way back in December 2009 and still didn't explain too much of what the game was about. What it did show however was that Mushihimesama Bug Panic would definitely be in line with CAVE's other iOS offerings, such as Dodonpachi Resurrection [$8.99/Lite] and Espgaluda II [$8.99/Lite], featuring huge explosions and tons of enemies on screen at once.
Just a few hours ago, CAVE sent over a brand new video and some more info on Mushihimesama Bug Panic, and it's looking great so far. Mushihimesama Bug Panic will be a sequel to the arcade and Xbox 360 title Mushihimesama Futari, and rather than a bullet hell scrolling shooter it will be more of a dual-stick shooter of sorts, but still with some bullet hell elements. The game will feature two main modes of play, an Adventure mode and a Score Trials mode. The story follows the events right after Mushihimesama Futari and has Bug Princess Reco using three different types of bombs to destroy the multitude of bug enemies that are after her.
The planned release date for Mushihimesama Bug Panic is sometime in Fall 2010, and the game will follow suit with other CAVE releases on the App Store and only support 3rd generation devices and above. A price has not yet been set for the game, but we are looking forward to getting our hands on Mushihimesama Bug Panic and we'll bring you any further news as we get it. In the meantime you can drop by the upcoming thread in our forums where a discussion of the game is taking place.
