Degica Games is localizing the original Castle of Shikigami, the company announced.
Castle of Shikigami, known as Shikigami no Shiro in Japanese, is a shoot ’em up that was released for arcades in Japan in 2001, and for Xbox and PlayStation 2 in 2002. An updated version, Shikigami no Shiro Evolution, was released for Xbox in late 2002 that contained improved enemy AI, two new characters, and a new gameplay mode.
The PlayStation 2 version of Shikigami no Shiro was released in North America and Europe in 2003 under the name Mobile Light Force 2. However, the western release removed the entire in-game plot, as well as screen rotation mode. It was also sold as a sequel to a game that Shikigami no Shiro developer Alfa System had nothing to do with.
Platforms were not announced, but Degica Games is primarily a Steam publisher. The company will share more news about Castle of Shikigami next week.
