Description

Experience sensory overload with CAVEs latest addition to the shmup arena, Akai Katana. Set in a parallel world resembling Japan’s Taisho period, the people have discovered the powerful Blood Swords. Requiring human sacrifices to unleash their immense destructive power, these swords have been used by the empire to crush neighbouring countries.

However, all the bloodshed and power gained through sacrificing close family members has made some of the swordsmen think twice. With new fighter planes and the powered up swords at their disposal, this small band of rebels now fight back against the tyrannical empire.

Created specifically with the Xbox 360 in mind, Akai Katana is the first CAVE release to feature horizontal combat in sumptuous HD and
eye-watering full 16:9 support. Prepare for a new definition of ‘bullet-hell‘!

Absolutely LOVED R-Type, so looking forward to this arriving now!

Games like this tend to hold their value quite well, so IMHO worth a tenner.

Sold off a load of my old games on eBay recently to clear some space - was VERY surprised at the value of some of them!

HOOOT

Got my copy in the post today and was clearly not a "New" copy! Was not sealed and the disc had scuff marks on it!

Was the first time I've ordered from Grainger games and will probably be the last time too now
