Game publishing company Rising Star began streaming a minute-long trailer on Tuesday for the North American release of Cave's Akai Katana. The trailer gives viewers a quick look at gameplay. Akai Katana will feature three gameplay modes, online leaderboards, and local two-player co-op.
Rising Star Games announced in January that the game would be seeing a release in both the United States and Europe in the second quarter of 2012 on the Xbox 360. The game was originally released as an arcade game in 2010, and an Xbox 360 port, titled Akai Katana Shin, was released in Japan on May 26. Ryū Umemoto (Kono Yo no Hate de Koi o Utau Shōjo YU-NO, EVE burst error), who passed away last year, composed the music for both games. Aksys Games released Cave's other side-scrolling shooter game Deathsmiles on the Xbox 360 in June 2010.
