Moss announced today that the previously teased Xbox One exclusive Raiden V will be releasing in Japan on February 25th both at retail and via digital download.

The game will cost 7992 yen in stores and 7344 yen on the Xbox online store, and the retail version’s first print will include a soundtrack CD. Incidentally, the soundtrack was composed by Yoshimi Kudo, who worked on Muramasa: The Demon Blade and more.

Raiden V is the latest chapter of the popular Raiden series, born in arcades in 1990, but the press release mentions that it will make uses of the modern features of the Xbox One, like the acquisition of information from all players in real time. It’s possible to see how dangerous an enemy is, the effectiveness of a weapon and more from everyone’s performance.

There will also be a “cheer system,” similar to what we saw in Persona 4 Golden, and even the story will have degrees of variation depending on what others connected online do.
