The folks at Cave certainly aren’t wasting any time when it comes to releases. Earlier this month we got HD and Universal versions of two of their strongest iOS games, and just last month they released Dodonpachi Blissful Death [$4.99/Lite], which unsurprisingly we enjoyed a lot. Today, Cave has announced on their website that their next iOS title will be Bug Princess 2, a sequel to their 2004 title Mushihimesama which was brought to the App Store as Bug Princess [$4.99/Lite] last December.

Bug Princess 2 was previously released in 2009 as an enhanced version for Xbox 360, under its original Japanese name Mushihimesama Futari. It’s not clear if any of those special enhancements will make their way into the iOS version, but if the release of the first Bug Princess is an indicator then Bug Princess 2 will likely be a very straightforward arcade port. Not that that’s a bad thing, or anything, especially for the introductory price of $4.99. Sounds like it’ll be Universal too, so if you just can’t get enough of Cave shooters then save up some scratch for Bug Princess 2 when it hits next week.

    I really hope that it isn't a 2X mode that they call universal. Bug Princess looked positively awful on the iPad.

      Considering their HD games have both been released at $10+ this will almost certainly be the same universal style as Bug Princess. I don't mind it much, the windowed mode makes the sprites look better than a straight 2x iPhone game. It removes one step from the scaling process.

    Knew this was coming, but still glad to see it.

    Much better than the first game.... MUCH better. 

    Though, if they dont include Black Label, people will be missing out.  Normal version 1.5 is fun enough, but Ultra is *so* difficult that in it's basic form, most people will find it unplayable.   Whereas Ultra in the first game (on Hell difficulty, so it matches the arcade) is merely "totally insane" difficulty.    God mode in Futari Black Label is just better.

    Guess we'll find out though.

    Uh-oh. This is the one with Queen Larsa, right?
