Akai Katana Pilot Training Videos Show How to Score

Cave's Akai Katana came out May 15th this week on U.S. soil courtesy of Rising Star Games. It seems like it might be a little difficult to nab one right now because a friend of mine hasn't been able to find one yet. I had mine pre-ordered so I was able to get it right away. I've been playing a lot so I didn't even notice parts 1 - 6 of the pilot training videos came online (there was also a part 0). This training stuff is also in the game itself, but if you don't have it yet and want to know how to handle all the intricacies of Akai Katana, watch the videos. My first time through the game I just played it like a normal shooter, without using any of the special phantom, steel orbs, katanas, or anything. I've since been rocking the various attacks and am really surprised at how deep the scoring and attacks really are for a shooter. Watch how to play Akai Katana, go find it, buy it, love it, and hope that Rising Star Games brings us more Cave goodness in the future.
