Cave Interactive, revered house of bullet-hell shmups with funny names, has lost its head of development today. Makoto Asada announced his departure in a blog post
, where he thanked fans for supporting his five-year tenure with the company and revealed he's moving on to next-gen console projects.
Asada's most recent contributions were on Dodonpachi Maximum
, a Windows Phone installment in Cave's popular series. Asada also worked on Deathsmiles
, EspGaluda 2
and pretty much every other shmup the company put on Xbox 360.
