Natsuki Chronicles

Long-delayed shoot ’em up Natsuki Chronicles will launch for Xbox One via the Microsoft Store on December 25 worldwide for $42.49 / 4,950 yen, developer Qute announced.

Here is an overview of the game, via the Microsoft Store:

The “shoot ’em up” evolves to a new level… This is a dramatic side-scrolling shoot ’em up!

You play as newbie pilot Natsuki and carry out missions! The past or future, what does Natsuki believe in—?

There are two gameplay modes:

  • Chronicles Mode: The story develops seamlessly during gameplay with fully-voiced dialogue.
  • Arcade Mode: A brisk, 30-minute single-player campaign that recreates that nostalgic gameplay.

A wide variety of equipment can be found throughout the game, making for added replay value as players add to their collection.

You can mix and match equipment with different properties! With the “Bullet Trajectory Display” function, you can check the direction of enemy bullets!

Natsuki Chronicles shares its setting with Ginga Force, but features a different set of characters. You can experience the new chronicles of the pioneers on the planet Seventier.
