Akai Katana takes place in a parallel world that resembles Japan's Taisho period. Here, people discovered a blood sword that takes human sacrifices to unleash its mass destructive power. The empire uses these swords and sacrificed their people to conquer other countries.

All the bloodshed and power gained through sacrificing close family members made some of the swordsmen change their stances. With new fighter planes and the powered up swords at their disposal, they fought back against the empire.

The Xbox360 has new stages, new characters and a new system. The graphics are adapted to suit a 16:9 screen and everything is even more beautiful and challenging than ever.

Find your sword and your sacrifice to end all violence. Akai Katana Shin comes in May:

A dream team of Japanese game developers come together to create this colorful RPG. Illustrators such as Pako of Shining Force Feather fame designed the characters, and Nobuo Uematsu composed the theme song. UnchainBlades ReXX is full of flames, spice, high fantasy and fights.

The dragon king Fang angered the goddess Kuryunea with his arrogant attitude and ended up as a human. Still, he won't mend his ways, he picked up his sword, recruited the phoenix princess into his team and decided to get his powers back through the most destructive ways.
