Akai Katana EU Teaser Trailer Enters Bullet Hell
Written Wednesday, March 28, 2012 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Originally announced for European launch back in October 2011 and released in Japan during May 2011, Akai Katana is almost ready to shoot its way to the west, and to celebrate, publisher Rising Star Games has released a teaser trailer, virtually identical to its original Japanese teaser.
In fact it is the same, save for a few swanky new graphics, some extra gameplay and English language descriptions. Cue physic powers, Guiding Ore that can be tempered into Guiding Blades, and an epic battle against the forces of the evil Emperor Basho. Forget the story... You can blow things up.
Fully remastered in 16:9 widescreen, with flashy HD visuals, an all-new scoring system, massive shooter combos and 3 modes: Origin, Slash and Climax, Akai Katana is as deep as shmups get. Check out the teaser trailer to see more of Akai Katana, which is releasing in the west in spring 2012. Caution: there will be wailing guitars.
