Konami combines Gradius-style, side-scrolling shoot 'em up gameplay with anime fetishes in Otomedius Excellent, coming to the Xbox 360 in North America on July 19. Not content to simply release a video game, Konami will also release a pillowcase.

The special edition version of Otomedius Excellent comes with the standard goodies—an exclusive art book and game soundtrack—as well as a "2-sided pillowcase featuring the girls of Otomedius." That's not something we get very often on these shores, so we're thankful—even if we're decades behind Japan on girls-printed-on-pillowcase technology.

The standalone version of Otomedius Excellent will retail for $29.99 USD. The Special Edition will be available for $49.99 USD. Konami promises more details on the Special Edition at a later date.
