Aksys Games announced today their plan to bring the vertical scrolling shoot-'em-up Castle of Shikigami III to North America. In Japan, the series is known for its intense difficulty and colorful characters.

This particular game features ten different characters (each with their own weapons and powers, of course), a branching story, the Tension Bonus System which rewards players for living on the edge, and a two-player co-op mode.

Prepare for bullet hell when Castle of Shikigami III hits store shelves Spring 2008.
