Bizarre demons and beautiful Oriental backdrops are heading to consoles this summer, courtesy of bullet-hell shmup Shikhondo – Soul Eater.

Developed by DeerFarm, Shikhondo – Soul Eater is a Korean bullet-hell shoot ’em up inspired by the most bizarre parts of Asian mythology. In it, 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. You must destroy these pestilent invaders, thus freeing the captured souls from eternal torment across Arcade, Hardcore and Boss Rush modes. And for the first time, players will be able to tackle the intensity of Shikhondo alongside a friend thanks to an all-new 2-player local co-op mode included when it releases on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.

Key features

  • Five stages of intense bullet-hell action and hypnotic barrage patterns
  • Game modes include: Arcade, Hardcore, Boss Rush and Local Co-op
