TRIVIA

Developed/Produced by Cave and Sales by AMI (Amusement Marketing International).

Released in April 2002.

The title of this game translates from Japanese as 'Angry Chief Hornet : Peaceful Death'.

The game is known outside Japan as "DoDonPachi 3" (Literally :Angry Chief Hornet 3).

It is rumored that only 5 players have cleared both loops of the game, 12 months after it's arcade release.

Shortly after DoDonPachi Dai-Ou-Jou, Cave released a special fan-edition of the same game. It is called "DoDonPachi Dai-Ou-Jou [Black Label]".

Cave released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (DoDonPachi Dai-Ou-Jou / Ketsui - Kizuna Jigoku Tachi - Original Sound Track - CVST-0000) on 06/06/2003.

TIPS AND TRICKS

• Hits : When an enemy is killed, if the player kills another one in a short, specified time, the kill count will increase by one.

• Hyper item : When collected, it gives your ship an added burst of fire-power which can be used when shooting a beam, and will last as long as your ship does, but it doesn't absorb bullets, meaning you remain vulnerable. Technically, it does let you absorb bullets for a few seconds by holding down the bomb button. This can only be done once during a hyper and allows you to escape from a tight corner if there are too many projectiles coming your way.
