ABOUT ESPGALUDA II

ESPGALUDA II is the sequel to CAVE’s well-known arcade shooter “ESPGALUDA”, released only in Japan. Set in a fantasy world, ESPGALUDA and its distinct cast of characters have been thrilling Japanese game center patrons since 2005.

ESPGALUDA II for iPhone met with critical acclaim and fan feedback in the west, and was placed in the “App Store Hall of Fame” by Apple. The simple appeal of the “Awakening System” which lets players destroy bullet patterns with their fingers earned the app a permanent place in fan’s hearts.

CAVE’s first release for iPhone® and iPod touch® is now available in high-definition with new BGM for your iPad2.
