Akaikatana – New CAVE Hori Shmup!!!
While scoping out the forums over at Shmups.com, I came across news of a NEW game by CAVE!
Named Akaikatana, or Red Katana, the game will be released to Japanese arcades this month.
There’s very little information, and from what I can gather it’s not been officially released yet. There was a location test at an arcade in Akihabara on July 23rd.
It’s another horizontal game, and the gameplay looks similar to Deathsmiles. the GOOD news is that you pilot an actual PLANE, not a teenage witch, or a hermaphrodite (Espgaluda – I’m lookin’ at you!).
