"Akai" means "red", and "katana" means, well, "katana". Set around 1950, the game is a retro military-style scrolling shooter with each ship having unique bullet patterns. The game will be tested later this month at Tokyo arcade Akihabara Hey.

So is this a shooter — as in 1st or 3rd person character or os it a Space craft shooting game? I asked due to this statement: "...with each SHIP having unique bullet patterns."
