Ketsui and Dodonpachi Black Label to Xbox 360

From Arcade Renaissance:

Cave's legendary Ketsui, and DoDonPachi Dai Ou Jou are getting the X360 treatment this year. This marks Ketsui's home console debut, after years of neglect and exponential aftermarket PCB price inflation. But not to be out done, despite it's previous PS2 port, the 360 DDP will be the Black Label revision, just in case you felt the original didn't have enough bullets flying about. Both titles will receive the obligatory "X" added to their title screens. While Shikigami no Shiro III proved that later 3D games can run quite nicely on the ole' 'box, We'll have to wait for Raiden Fighters Aces to see if on old school 2D game can make a similarly painless transition. Also, the ports are being handled by generic licensed IP game dev 5pb, whose biggest claim to "fame" to date has probably been the Night Wizard The Videogame, signaling the passing of the torch of crap-anime-license-shovelware-developer from Bandai to 5pb. I'm filled with dread over this.
