Raiden IV is coming to North American Xbox 360s, thanks to publisher UFO Interactive. The better news is that the top-down shooter won’t be unceremoniously released. It’s getting double the “limited edition” treatment.
Of course, we’re not getting night vision goggles or a replica plasma beam upgrade in the box, but something a little more straightforward — an exclusive soundtrack. The amusingly localised “Ultimate of Raiden” soundtrack will ship alongside the game disc, with retailer GameStop—brace for it!—getting its own limited edition package, complete with digital artbook.
UFO says the “secret file” artbook will contain concept art, boss and enemy data, and game strategies. Clearly for the serious Raiden fan.
The game shoots up retail this September. We’re sure you’ll find a place for it on your list of Fall purchases.
Kotaku AU Note: No word on a local release yet, so shmup fans should probably look to import.
