    CASTLE OF SHIKIGAMI III ON THE 
Wii™ IN THE SPRING OF 2008



    Bullet hell comes to the Wii!

    Torrance, CA (December 14, 2007) - Aksys Games, a publisher of interactive entertainment products, is set to release Castle of Shikigami III, a vertical scrolling shoot'em-up on the Wii in the spring of 2008.

    "Caste of Shikigami is known in Japan for its lively characters and challenging difficulty. There's just something to be said when a game paints the screen with enemy gunfire and rewards you for living life on the edge," said Michael Manzanares, Project Lead, Aksys Games. "I've always been a fan of the Shikigami series, and I'm glad we had the opportunity to bring this latest installment to the States."

    Castle of Shikigami III Features:

    • Tension Bonus System!
Your proximity to enemy units and gunfire determines your score and firepower!

    • 10 memorable characters!
Each character has their own specialized weapons and powers, anything from chain lightning to psychic blades!

    • 55 possible story combinations!
Experience a wide variety of scenarios with fully voiced dialogue!

    • 2 Player Co-op Mode!
Dodge a never-ending barrage of bullets alone or with a friend!


    • Exclusive console-only Dramatic Change Mode!
Switch between two characters in the middle of the fight to improve your chances for survival!


    Castle of Shikigami III has not yet been rated by the ESRB. More information about Aksys Games and Castle of Shikigami III can be found at www.aksysgames.com.

    Is this going to finally be multi-platform? Both previous games were exclusives outside Japan.

    Gambia, The
    Hooooooray for 'shmups! If there's one thing, Nintendo's current generation of consoles is missing, it's decent, classic side-scrolling shoot-em-ups. One of the first games I actually bought, when I got my Wii was the GC-version of Ikaruga. And I bought Nanostray the day I bought my DS.

    I want more!

    I've never heard of this series, but it sounds like just what we need on the wii! I'd love it if the co-op was available over wi-fi, but a fraction of a second of lag would probably ruin a game like this.
