According to this, Microsoft’s turned down Cave’s insane top-down shooters for XBLA in Japan. According to a statement from Cave:
“Our initial plan was to port lots of good arcade titles to XBLA. We talked to IP holders of these titles, and persuaded them. We secured these licenses, and finally talked with Microsoft. There they rejected all of our proposals saying, ‘We are going to cut down faithful arcade ports.’ We felt so frustrated. We wanted to show them that their decision was wrong. So we switched our two most promising projects into retail.”
Cave’s Ketsui and DoDonPachi Dai Ou Jou Black Label were supposed to be released on the service in Japan later this year. And now they’re not. So that… sucks.

Jesus. The world’s not ready. According to this, Cave shooters Ketsui and DoDonPachi Dai Ou Jou Black Label are going to be released on XBLA at some point. If you’ve never heard of them, watch the following videos to get an idea of what to expect. No idea on date or territories for these as yet.
Update: This sounds a bit cock-eyed. Apparently the games are going to be retail packages, not XBLA games, so don’t get your hopes up about being able to play these outside Japan just yet.
