Shikigami No Shiro III (aka. Castle Shikigami III) is an arcade shooting game developed by Alfa System and originally released on the Type X arcade board. Shikigami no Shiro III resembles past entries of the character driven scrolling shooter series, with its vertical display and anime cut-ins. This time around, players select from 10 warriors whom they directly navigate. The game includes five stages of blasting action, each cumulating in a major boss fight.

New for the home versions is a Dramatic Change Mode, where you can change between two characters on the fly. As a result of this new mode, you can now enjoy the two-player exclusive scenarios from the arcade version even when playing by yourself. The home version also includes a gallery mode.


Published by Arc System Works, Shikigami No Shiro III is now available as NTSC/J encoded release versions for Xbox360™ and Nintendo Wii™. The game has also been released earlier last year for PC.



From the publisher: A fragile peace between the civilized races and the hordes is at stake. When the dwarven mining expedition discovered an ancient temple dedicated to an unnamed deity - all of the world's most powerful factions saw it as a possible clue to the place of Azriaal's burial ground.

A silent war has now begun and it will soon ignite the fires that will lead to the holy crusade of the Orcs. However, the real danger lies somewhere else. A powerful force churns silently - weaving a secret plot of fear and destruction. In the end one of the Two Worlds will remain. It is up to you to save the world …or destroy it!


South Peak Interactive's Xbox360™ RPG Two Worlds is in stock today, shipping as English language NTSC/J encoded release version at US$ 44.90 only. This release comes a bit by surprise as the game has been pushed back many times for an Asian territory release that it was already believed to be cancelled.
