Akai Katana

Game Vortex
12 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Some innovation comes from combination, “mashups” as they are fondly known in the Tech start-up world. In the gaming world, we see this with trends like Action/RPG games, where developers try to bring out the best in both genres.

(Xbox 360 Review) Akai Katana

The Entertainment Depot
13 June 2012
  • Summary: With a handful of levels and generic enemy types, Akai Katana is really for the score hounds. Fortunately for Cave and Rising Star, I’d say that covers the majority of shooter fans.

25 May 2012
  • Summary: European gamers take another trip to bullet hell thanks to Rising Star Games. Unlike most modern games, reading the manual for Akai Katana is essential. Not only is the games entire story contained within (threadbare even for a shoot ’em up), it is also vital for understanding the more complicated...

Akai Katana review

GameZone
15 May 2012
  • Conclusion: For $39.99 ($20 below the usual price for Xbox 360 games), Akai Katana is a must-own for fans of “shmups” and quirky Xbox 360 fare.

Akai Katana Xbox 360 Review

DarkZero
20 May 2012
  • Excerpt: I simply love companies like Rising Star Games . They do their utmost best to bring us niche titles that big publishers simply would never touch. We have to thank them for bringing games like The King of Fighters XIII , the Harvest Moon series, Half-Minute Hero , Muramasa and Little King’s Story .

Akai Katana

Ready Up
16 May 2012
  • Summary: Akai Katana is one of the best and most gorgeous Shmups to date. It looks stunning and is expertly crafted by a group of creators who know the genre inside out. It is most certainly worth a short playthrough for anyone with an XBOX 360 and worth borrowing a friend's machine if you don't.
