An easier release of "Dodonpachi Dai-Ou-Jou" released shortly after the original version.

Released in October 2002.

It seems this release is due to a small number of complaints from high-level arcade players regarding the difficult level of "Dodonpachi Dai-Ou-Jou". The major complaints were :

- "Dodonpachi Dai-Ou-Jou" confiscates any spare lives you had at the end of the first loop making more difficult to reach the end of the second loop.

- You cannot continue if you lose your last life on stage 2-5.

- On this version you select 1 Loop Mode or 2 Loop Mode at the beginning, after selecting your ship. 2 Loop Mode is the normal arcade play with both loops (and as with "Dodonpachi Dai-Ou-Jou", after clearing the 1-5 boss, you have the option to continue into the second loop, or call it a day). With 1 Loop Mode, after defeating the 1-5 boss, you reach the Hibachi fight, which you can also now credit-feed through. So this makes practicing Hibachi much more feasable than what would be needed in "Dodonpachi Dai-Ou-Jou".
