Cave’s New Arcade Shooter Akai Katana Coming to the US, Trailer Released

on March 28, 2012 7:30 PM

Fans of the obscure “bullet hell” genre have a new title to look out for. Akai Katana from Japanese developer Cave will be coming to the States courtesy of Rising Star Games. It will apparently remain Xbox 360 exclusive, no different from Cave’s previous release Deathsmiles. I wonder why Aksys didn’t take care of this release as well. Fans could have imported the game when it came out in May of last year were it not for the 360’s region lock, but oh well. If the developer’s track record is any indication, it should be more than worth the wait. Akai Katana will launch in North America this Spring. Hit the break to check out the newly released trailer, which details some of the features and modes the game will ship with.
