    Various pre release data has this down as region locked as does play asia.

    This is something of an alternate Japanese history wherein a sword dubbed the red sword/blood sword has been used to conquer a lot but you then play the resistance to it. Based on an arcade version this does the usual touting of 16:9 and HD whatever but it does apparently feature a new mode or three in addition to the original arcade mode. As you can see in the video it is a side scrolling game as well.
    Some seem to have accused it of being slightly easier than Cave's usual offerings as well.

    Amazon Japan lists a limited edition version that appears to come with an audio CD (I believe the extra award is an amazon thing much like other preorder stuff)
