Akai Katana Shin Trailer Released

By Ashley Woodcock, 6 years ago
Rising Star Games have released a new trailer for their upcoming shoot 'em up Akai Katana (JP).

The trailer highlights some of the key feautures included with the game, including an all new scoring system, heavy and destructive weaponry, and three new game modes - origin, slash and climax - all whilst checking out some intense gameplay action in glorious HD. Before we dive into the trailer, here's a brief rundown of what the story is about for the title:

The story of Akai Katana is set in a parallel world resembling Japan's Taisho period, where the people have discovered the powerful Blood Swords. Requiring human sacrifices to unleash their immense destructive power, these swords have been used by the empire to crush neighboring countries. However, all the bloodshed and power gained through sacrificing close family members has made some of the swordsmen think twice. With new fighter planes and the powered up swords at their disposal, this small band of rebels now fight back against the tyrannical empire.
Here's the trailer:

I know some of our wonderful community members here at TA are very passionate about your bullet-hell titles. Will this game be hell-ish enough for the hardcore fans out there?

Akai Katana is still scheduled for a "Spring 2012" release for both Europe and North America. A more specific release date will hopefully be announced very soon.
