The European version of Dodonpachi Resurrection won't be out until November 5th, but publisher Rising Star Games has already announced plans to bring yet another Cave game, Akai Katana Shin, to shoot-'em-up fans in Europe.

Akai Katana Shin is an upgraded Xbox 360 port of Cave's 2010 horizontally scrolling arcade shooter Akai Katana. A sample gameplay video can be seen above -- as with Cave's previous releases, players can expect a convoluted scoring system and tons upon tons of pastel-colored bullets.

Rising Star Games has not yet revealed any details regarding the upcoming title, other than to announce that a release is planned for the first half of 2012.
