Cave's Akai Katana is set to make its way onto Xbox 360 following release in the Japanese arcades last year. The horizontal scrolling shooter - whose name means 'Red Katana' - will be coming to the console as an upgraded iteration entitled Akai Katana Shin.

With revamped visuals, a new gameplay system, a new stage and a 16:9 aspect ratio that re-assigns enemy movements and bullet patterns to better fit a widescreen display, Akai Katana Shin is a definitive version of the arcade game for Xbox 360. And Cave is also shoving the original version of the game on the disc too, which is nice.

However, Cave has announced that Akai Katana Shin will be region locked in Japan, so you'll be unable to import it overseas. That said, it could be the case that a western publisher picks up the rights to publish the game in western territories, just like Rising Star and Aksys Games did with Deathsmiles in Europe and North America respectively. Akai Katana Shin shoots its way into Japan on May 26th, 2011.
