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.

Akai Katana Shin has got everything a shooting fan longed for. From graphics, animation to A1 qulity gameplay, I reckon this is one of the best shooting games CRAVE has created. Its a great arcade shooter & best played with a good arcade stick.

You know you want it...
This game made it worth having inported a Japanese Xb360... :D

So yeah, bad news for most people this game is region locked.... but for those of us who can enjoy it, it is well worth it.

I wish cave would make all their games region free.

This is easily the most beautiful CAVE game out there. The graphics are gorgeous and the artwork itself is just fantastic. There is 3 main modes of gameplay, Shin (360 mode, which I like best) Arcade, and Zetsu (arrange). All 3 modes play differently and have their own score mechanics. There is also 3 different ships which control sort of like each different death smiles character. You have one that moves it's option when you use rapid fire but stays in place when you hit laser, one that has a trailing effect and so on. There is also a ninja mode which is used for scoring and how you go about doing so depends which mode you're playing in. The game features an awesome original and a stellar arranged soundtrack, training modes, leader boards, and all your standard CAVE fair. If you like CAVE, you'll like this.

Fun Fun Fun
I'm normally much more of a vertical shmup fan yet after loving DeathSmiles so much I wasted no time in ordering this game. Cave have produced the goods yet again. This is a wicked horizontal shmup that has several modes, a ton of scoring opportunities and most important of all, it is a whole lot of fun to play. Probably also a bit easier than most Cave offerings.
