Torrance, CA (December 14, 2007) – Aksys Games, a publisher of interactive entertainment products, is set to release Castle of Shikigami III, a vertical scrolling shoot’em-up on the Wii in the spring of 2008.

"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.”

Castle of Shikigami III Features:

• 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!

Yeah, that's nice.

Some random info: The original Shikigami never came out in the US as Castle Shikigami. It came out as something... else.

Luckily CoS is in good hands this time. Very good hands.

Yeah, I heard lots of positive feedback on Aksys Games, so this port most likely won't be bad at all.

I remember hearing somewhere that the game will retail for $30.  Not sure if that's true, though.

tbqh MarioKart IMO has more replay value than Brawl.  Too bad I don't have online.

For a while I wasn't interested in Shikigami here, after trying out the Japanese PC version, but for a possible $30 and being ported by Aksys it looks very tempting.
