Bizarre demons, bullet hell raining down upon you and beautiful Oriental backdrops have arrived in the form of Shikhondo – Soul Eater. If that combination doesn’t intrigue you, we’re not sure what will!
Developed by DeerFarm, Shikhondo – Soul Eater is a Korean bullet-hell shoot ’em up inspired by the most bizarre elements of Asian mythology. Basically, armies of demons known as yokai have escaped from Limbo and have begun spreading like a plague across the land, sowing fear and stealing souls along the way. You must help destroy these pestilent invaders, thus freeing the captured souls from their eternal torment across a selection of modes – Arcade, Hardcore and Boss Rush.
For the first time, players will be able to tackle the intensity of Shikhondo alongside a friend too thanks to an all-new 2-player local co-op mode. Should the hypnotic barrage of bullets sound enticing, either solo or with a friend, Shikhondo – Soul Eater is now available for £11.19 on Xbox One. All you need to do is venture over to the Microsoft Store, pay the price, and you’ll be blasting the demonic enemies to pieces in no time.
Don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled for our full review in the near future!
