Castle of Shikigami III on Wii Barrages into
Retail Today

Welcome…To Bullet Hell!!!

Aksys Games has shipped Castle of Shikigami III,
a vertical scrolling shoot-’em-up for Wii, to retail today! Based on the hit
arcade title Shikigami no Shiro, players will choose from a vast array of
characters to go against the mystery that shrouds the country of Alcaland.

“Castle of Shikigami III is a nice throwback to
arcade shooters: simple to pick up and play, but difficult to master,” said
Michael Manzanares, Project Lead. “If you’re looking for a good time with a
hilarious cast of characters or seeking a battlefield swarmed with grunts and
gunfire, Castle of Shikigami won’t disappoint.”

Castle of Shikigami III takes place in the calm and forgotten kingdom of
Alcaland. This relatively small country has suddenly been struck by a series of
mysterious events which have caused people to disappear and go into comas. You
play the role of one of ten psychics which have been reluctantly hired by the
royal family to investigate and solve this mystery.
