Raiden V coming west in May

Xbox One shoot 'em up confirmed for North America and Europe.

Raiden V

Moss will launch its Xbox One shoot ’em up Raiden V in North America, Europe, and Asia in May, the developer announced.

In commemoration of the overseas release, Moss is also planning an update to the game that will add English voices, three kinds of main weapons, and other adjustments.

Raiden V first launched for Xbox One in Japan on February 25. The game uses the Xbox One cloud to acquire the play data of other players in real-time. You can trace the trails of your friends to help you out of tough areas. The battlefield will also change in real-time based on you and your friends’ actions. Online, you can help other players using the one-button “Cheer System.” Additionally, the game features multiple stories and the most stages and weapons in a Raiden game thus far.
