City Connection has announced that it will release Akai Katana Shin on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Steam, and Xbox One on December 15, 2022. This game will be a port of Akai Katana Shin previously released by Cave in 2011 on the Xbox 360.
Akai Katana is a side-scrolling shooter released in 2010 for arcades. Combining traditional Japanese style and military style, artist Mushimaro has created beautiful character designs for games. The story tells of two factions separated by war, shrouded in tragic and dramatic history. While the rules are a little tricky, the gameplay offers a lot of replay value and allows players to challenge themselves. In 2011, a port was made for home consoles called Akai Katana Shin: the gameplay was redesigned, and the new 16:9 aspect ratio provides a more comfortable game experience.
