X360 Mushihimesama HD - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» Every two centuries, the monstrous insects of the Forest of Pearls have demanded a teenage human sacrifice from the kingdom of Starfall. It's about that time but winds of change are in the air. To put an end to the barbaric ritual, the precocious 15-year old Princess Reko straddles a golden-shelled beetle named Kiniro and works her way through insect-filled levels where purple buckshot chokes the air with their density. Guide Reko through mazes of moving blips and use beetle firepower to take on all comers.

   Reko shoots for her life with the following weapons:

M-Power - Vulcan cannon
W-Power - Spread shot
S-Power - Streaming laser

   Additional power-ups may be gathered up during the game such as wingmen which fly adjacent to Reko and add to her main shots and a shadow beetle which follows Kiniro's body with additional firepower.

   Seven years after porting Mushihimesama on the Japanese Playstation 2, Cave is bringing the game over to the Xbox 360 for a May 24, 2012 release. Game modes in the Xbox 360 port (as seen in the first screenshot below) are Novice, X360, and Arrange. Additional game options are Score Attack, Leaderboards, Training, Replay Data, and Options. An image gallery is probably located in the Options section. Reservations are welcome starting today for two versions:

» Mushihimesama HD Regular Edition (JPY7140) or US$96.90 from NCS
» Mushihimesama HD Limited Edition (JPY9240) or US$128.90 from NCS

   The limited edition of the game is bundled with a soundtrack CD and both versions of the first printing will be packed with a DLC code so gamers can download Mushihimesama Cave Matsuri Ver 1.5 which was a full-blown PCB in the arcades. Reservations are welcome to ship on May 24, 2012.

Fairly certain in a 2 player game both players play Reco. Aki is the game's main antagonist.
