^ Looks great, I wonder if this will be the original discs repackaged (as I suspect), or wether they'll make both discs both region free this time?

It's already been confirmed that the two compilations will be on separate disks and have the original region coding = 1 is Japanese and 1 will be region-free, pretty crazy if you ask me!

^ Worth picking up for the region-free disc, in your opinion?

It's not an especially cheap collection unless you've got a Japanese console. To be honest I'd pick up the separate release.

This may truly be Cave's last 360 release.

Rumours of another new 360 shmup for 2014, Triangle Service have announced a new title.

Game Center Love. Plus Pengo!:

http://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/B00H ... =husigi-22

It seems there's no concrete news on what is included in the pack but a shooting game skills mini game collection like in the original Shooting Love 200x seems to be one of the games included.

Edit: a bit more clarity about what is included can be found here

I really liked the original too, a real shame that in certain quarters its not really liked.

I've ordered the limited Editon, didn't realise how large that box was!!

^ It definitely feels that the waves/patterns are more aggressive, and Burst Mode is damn good fun.

Yes it does it's certainly feels like it's been amped up, very impressive when the screen fills and you let the burst laser go - very satisfying.

I think this revision is definitely a worthwhile one in terms of gameplay and not purely cosmetic.
