Mamoru-kun Has Been Cursed, a run-and-gun bullet hell shooter originally released in Japanese arcades, is apparently coming to a console network near you.

Siliconera reports the G.Rev title is being localised and will be released “under a slightly different name”.

Mamoru-kun Has Been Cursed was ported to Xbox 360 and then PlayStation 3 after its arcade release; the PS3 version reportedly sports two additional characters and a widescreen mode.

Footage the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 version can be found below. I would perhaps turn your speakers down before loading either of these.

G.Rev boss Hiroykui Maruyama made headlines earlier this week by claiming that Japanese developers lose money when releasing games on Xbox Live thanks to currency conversion policies.
