Raiden V Screens and Release Date For Japan

By Ashley Woodcock, 2 years ago
Its been a very long time since the confirmation of developer Moss' shoot 'em up Raiden V. Since September 2014, we haven't seen anything from the upcoming shooter. New news has recently come to light with the announcement of the game's specific release date in Japan, as well as a few screens to look at.

It has also been revealed that first-print copies of the retail version of Raiden V will come with an original soundtrack CD, which will contain background music from the game itself.

The game will also take advantage of the Xbox One cloud system to acquire the play data of other shooters in real-time. This will allow for players to see and trace the trails of fellow shooters and potentially help with the game's tougher areas. The battlefield itself will also change in real-time dependent on what actions you and your online friends take. With the use of the one-button "Cheer System", players will be able to help others online. Lastly, the game will come with multiple stories and "the highest number of stages and weapons featured in a Raiden game" so far.

Take a look at the screens for a sample of the shmup action to come:
