Ketsui -Kizuna Jigoku Tachi Extra-, a Cave Shooter, comes to PS3!

Hi guys, striderzero96 here & I’m bringing you one of the best Cave shoot’em ups (shmups for short) to ever grace the PlayStation 3 titled Ketsui ~Kizuna Jigoku Tachi~ Extra!


If Cave ever wanted to pick a shooter that they feel would be a flagship title for a system like the PS3, this would be the one, for many reasons.

It is widely considered as one of the best shmups that Cave has ever created, and 5pb has ever coded for this system. The accuracy found on this version is about 80%-90% Arcade accurate, as well as being REGION FREE on the platform. So you won’t have to buy 2 systems, or would have to hack your system to play this game (and many other imports) like the Xbox 360.

While this game has been released for the Xbox 360 a few years ago (both regular and Limited Edition versions), the PS3 has one upper hand on their version. You can upload your replay to YouTube and NicoVideo websites through the PS3. Of course though, they are the Japan versions of said websites.

Speaking of Limited Editions, the PS3 L.E. gives you the game, a Blu-Ray Superplay video of top players flying through the game as well as giving tutorials on how to score properly, and a 2-Disc Original & Arrange Soundtrack all in a nice slipcase package. Both the regular & L.E. copy of the game are available at VideoGamesNewYork for a retail price of $89.99 & 129.99 respectively


Game Play feels very hard & fast, but most Cave shooters are like that. Here is a video I made playing Stage 1 & 2 of this game
