News: Popular Japanese shooter comes to America courtesy of Aksys Games.

The Shikigami series has had a tough go in America. The first title in the series was released in America with the storyline completely cut out as Mobile Light Force 2. The cover also depicted three crimefighting babes in skintight leather, none of which were in the game. The sequel, Castle Shikigami 2 was released mostly intact in 2005, but the game was, and is, almost impossible to find.

So now we jump to the present and find that Aksys Games has announced they are bringing Castle of Shikigami III to the Wii next Spring. Aksys promises the vertically scrolling shooter will be faithful and will be packed with all of the original features (as well as some new ones):

  • Tension Bonus System! Your proximity to enemy units and gunfire determines your score and firepower!

  • 10 memorable characters! Each character has their own specialized weapons and powers, anything from chain lightning to psychic blades!

  • 55 possible story combinations! Experience a wide variety of scenarios with fully voiced dialogue!

  • 2 Player Co-op Mode! Dodge a never-ending barrage of bullets alone or with a friend!

  • Exclusive console-only Dramatic Change Mode! Switch between two characters in the middle of the fight to improve your chances for survival!

    "Castle of Shikigami is known in Japan for its lively characters and challenging difficulty. There's just something to be said when a game paints the screen with enemy gunfire and rewards you for living life on the edge,? said Michael Manzanares, Project Lead, Aksys Games. ?I've always been a fan of the Shikigami series, and I'm glad we had the opportunity to bring this latest installment to the States.?

    We'll have more soon.
