Bullet hell shooter Shikhondo: Soul Eater to be delisted soon

By Luke Albigés,

Shikhondo: Soul Eater looks set to be the next delisting casualty, with the bullet hell shooter confirmed to be getting removed from the Xbox store soon, potentially by the end of March.

Shoot-'em-up fans may only have a matter of weeks to pick up Shikhondo: Soul Eater, as publisher Digerati has confirmed that the shmup will be removed from sale on the Xbox store when the publishing agreement ends soon. The Japanese PS4 release, published by Eastasiasoft, will be delisted on March 31st, so it's expected that the Xbox version will be removed on or around the same date.

Shikhondo - Soul Eater

Shikhondo - Soul Eater is a Korean bullet-hell shoot ‘em up set within a beautiful and bizarre world of Asian mythology. Armies of demons known as yokai have escaped from Limbo. They are spreading like a plague across the land, sowing fear and stealing souls. You must destroy the pestilent invaders and free the captured souls from eternal torment. Includes Arcade, Hardcore and Local Co-op modes.

Digerati confirmed the delisting on Twitter in a reply to TA user iriihutoR48. "The term of the agreement for Shikhondo: Soul Eater will be coming to an end, so it will be delisted on the platforms/regions where we publish it as well," the publisher stated.

It's currently unknown whether the game will be discounted before its upcoming delisting, although it was only on sale a few weeks ago at 65% off. We'll let you know if we hear anything about a pre-delisting price cut — you can also hit the 'set price alert' button on the panel above to be notified when the price changes — or if we get news of a firm date when Shikhondo will leave the Xbox store.

Will you be picking this one up before it gets delisted? Let us know!
