Shipping today: Mushihimesama Original Sound Track (w/ Princess Reko Figure), Gradius V (Konami the Best) (PS2™), Pariah (Xbox™ Asia), Kasumi, Ninja Gaiden & Godannar toys


Being probably as excited as any true Shmup and especially Cave fan about the upcoming PlayStation2™ shooting port scheduled to ship July 21st, we have been able to offer a very special related item to reduce the long waiting time.

Strongly limited and only distributed through Cave's mobile phone order procedure in Japan, we have been able to make the Mushihimesama Original Sound Track available to all Cave fans worldwide at a very tempting cost priced at very similar level as distributed in Japan.

The soundtrack album contains 19 tracks with a total running time of approx. 59 minutes. Track 01-13 are based on the Original Ver., Track 14 on the Test Ver., Track 15 on the Mobile Ver. and Track 16-18 on the Arrange Ver. of the game. Track 19 contains an exclusive Voice Collection that did not make it into the final version of the game. Trying to put the soundtrack into words, it's indeed a very beautiful compilation, reminding us slightly about Amiga mods with a nice Japanese touch.

Every copy of the soundtrack ships including an approx. 16cm tall Princess Reko figure - the main character of the game.

The Mushihimesama Original Sound Track [Limited Edition w/ Figure] is in stock today shipping at US$ 44.90 as long as supply lasts. Please notice that due to limited availability, this product is restricted to a maximum order quantity of 3 units per customer.

To give everyone a better impression, we have further taken a couple of extra shots of the item. Click on each thumbnail for an enlarged shot or alternatively access the entire gallery here for easier browsing. Also make sure to check out Cave's interesting Promotion Video.


As final reminder and if you haven't done so yet, make sure to preorder your copy of the PlayStation2™ port, available as regular version (US$ 59.90) or Limited Edition (US$ 69.90). Latest is shipping including another Princess Reko Figure, which is confirmed to be different from the one that is included with the soundtrack album.
