Just Look At All Those Fucking Bullets

Insanity! This is the latest trailer for Akai Katana, the latest shooter from famed arcade developer Cave.

The company is known for its vertical scrolling shooters, making Akai Katana one of the few side-scrollers the company's developed.

This May, the game will hit the Xbox 360 as Akai Katana Shin in Japan. More at the game's official site below.

    My eyes... they can't process all that visual information fast enough!

    Oh yeah, this articles use of the word "fuck" makes me want to throw my money at this game! Hardcore!

    I have deathsmiles,(another of Cave's horizontal shooters) and I played it on easy. It was fine till I got to the extra stage, and it looked something like that.

    Remember that it's probably not hard mode they're showing, that's most likely normal mode ^^;;

    This has nothing on touhou

    I love watching these videos but can't understand the appeal of these bullet hell shooters. Is it about memorising the patterns?

      It's more about bettering your own high-scores to me. Minimal gains feel like climbing mountains in these games sometimes. Also, they are infinitely more challenging than most of the curent crop of games, so long as play how they are meant to be played (ie for high scores/one-credit-completions)
