"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. Rising Star Games also deals with distributing Cave’s hardcore bullet hell shoot-em-ups. That’s good to know since Cave is the forerunners in the genre at the moment, and fans clamber to their newest releases like they just discovered some rare mystical treasure. The latest addition to Cave's impressive catalogue is Akai Katana, a bullet hell shooter that when I initially saw the first screenshots gave me an impression that Cave had toned down their bizarre design in their games - yeah, I was wrong."
