No GravatarKonami has released new details for the upcoming US release of the Xbox 360 ‘shoot’em up’, Otomedius Excellent.

Otomedius Excellent is the follow up to the Japan only release of Otomedius Gorgeous. The series is categorized as a ‘cute’ em up’. This is the process of taking an already established game, as in this case Gradius, and changing the ships into young girls or other ‘cute’ characters. All while still keeping the classic game play intact.

Released this week in Japan, Konami of America has stated that the US release will follow sometime later this year. The Japanese release includes a DLC code for an extra character. Unknown if this will also be included with the US release.

The following is the official screenshots and Konami’s press release:
