Both vertical- and horizontal-scrolling shooters are pretty niche fare, even by this site's standards. Believe me, I can tell by the crickets that sound whenever I post about something like a new game from legendary shooter developer Cave! Anyway, here's something that could pique interests a bit more broadly: The upcoming Xbox 360 release of Cave's DoDonPachi Saidaioujou has an anime opening, and it's now available to view online.
Peep the video below and you'll also hear voice actress/singer Aya Hirano (Haruhi in The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Lucy in Fairy Tail) performing her song "Stardust Void."
DoDonPachi Saidaioujou hits Xbox 360 in Japan on May 30 in both regular and limited editions.
