Cave Shmup Akai Katana now shipping to Arcade distributors

The new Cave produced Horizontial Shmup Akai Katana is now shipping to Arcade distributors in Japan. The game is a Pseudo Pro Gear No Arashi sequel featuring steampunk mech designs and the ability to switch between ship and human form. The game is based on the Jamma based SH-3 hardware with a low resolution 15k output. With the announcements of Dodonpachi Daifukkatsu and Muchi Muchi Pork / Pink Sweets this past weekend a Xbox 360 version next year is not out of the question.
