It'll include the original arcade game in 4:3 for fans "craving authenticity." To help out, Rising Star has put together "a series of tutorial videos" to let us know what Akai Katana is all about.
"Cave are world renowned for creating the biggest and best arcade shooters around, and we’re delighted to add Akai katana to that list, come May 11,” said Rising Star.
“No other arcade shooter offers the same explosive entertainment and wanton destruction as Akai Katana, and we can’t wait to let this lose on the public,” continued managing director, Martin Defries. The tutorials prepared by Rising Star will be available via the official May 7th, ready for its exclusive launch May 11th on Xbox 360.
