Good news fellow STG enthusiasts! Cave's side-scrolling bullet-hell adventure Akai Katana is making its way to the Xbox 360, courtesy of Rising Star Games.

Akai Katana will be their first North American release, and while there isn't a concrete release date for that presently, Europeans will have the opportunity to pick up a copy as early as Friday May 11 for £29.99.

Review: Neo XYX
