Cave shows you how to play Akai Katana Shin, one day

0

Cave has released two new videos of the side-scrolling Xbox 360 shmup Akai Katana Shin -- the HD console update of Arcade shooter Akai Katana. While both of them are tutorial videos you'll probably skip through if you can't read Japanese or if you are impatient, the last minute or so has some gameplay footage.

The above video displays 'Akai Katana mode' -- the arcade version -- and the below video shows off the 'Akai Katana Shin' mode that's new for the Xbox 360 version. This game completely passed under my radar when it was announced, but it looks pretty damn awesome.

Sadly this game is getting a region-locked Japanese release on May 26th (unless it has been briefly delayed like Otomedius X), but Cave has tweeted a while back that "hopefully one of our publisher friends will be interested as it looks grand." So, everyone contact Aksys and Rising Star Games -- who released Deathsmiles in North America and Europe -- and demand this to be released in your region!

Check the other videos below while I wait to play Akai Katana Shin in 2013...
