Classic Shmup ‘Castle of Shikigami 2’ Coming to Switch and PC in December; Retranslated With New Mode

Degica Games announced they will publish the Alfa System-developed shmup Castle of Shikigami 2 on Nintendo Switch and PC-via Steam this December.

Initially released on PlayStation 2 in the west in 2004, Castle of Shikigami 2 is a fast-paced action shmup where players choose one of seven characters to play through a series of levels. Each character has unique abilities that alter their shot pattern and special Shikigami attacks. Further, they have their backstory that creates a pretty engaging storyline for a shooter.

This Switch and PC release will launch with a new Entry Mode for players of all skill levels to enjoy the five stages, which each feature three different parts. Further, players will find new enemy placements through this mode. In addition, the update release will have retranslated English version from the origin and a Dramatic Change Mode where players can switch between characters. Still, this mode can be enjoyed with two players as well.

The game will have Steam achievement and trading cards for those who care and will be featured as a playable demo during the Steam Next Fest, featuring two playable characters and two available stages.
