According to a press release from Microsoft, 37 companies have signed up to publish titles for Windows Phone 7 in the Japanese marketplace. One of these is Cave, renowned for its bullet hell shooters on other platforms, which is said to be developing an original new shooter for the platform.
There are no details on Cave’s new title yet — not even a name. The company’s past mobile titles Espgaluda II, DoDonPachi Resurrection, Deathsmiles and Mushihimesama Bug Panic are among the best games on Apple’s iOS platform, so its development for Windows Phone 7 devices will hopefully give the mobile OS’ respectability as a gaming platform a healthy boost.
Also on the way to Windows Phone 7 is Sonic 4 Episode 1 from Sega; Pac-Man, Pac-Man Championship Edition DX and Katamari Damacy from Namco; and an untitled new project from Konami.
