The second installment of the popular Drama Shooter in Arcades is now coming on Steam with +2 elements! Castle Shikagami 2 aka Shikigami No Shero 2 is another bullet heel SHMUP that adds a unique mechanic known throughout the franchise as Bullet Tension. Basically, there is a colorful glow around your character that turns red at maximum risk, and stealing shots with your character’s hitbox increases your score multiplier and shot power.
This is the final form of Risk vs. Reward in a shmup, and most shots are slow so you can set up specials depending on the character you are using. This is what I personally would consider the best in the franchise, and overall a solid pick-up if you’ve never had access to the game’s previous ports in the PS2 / Xbox era.
That sounds pretty accurate for arcade and based on what I’ve seen so far for people who are concerned about arcade accuracy. One thing that is not wrong for me but will be detrimental to others is that there is no presence of the infamous meme English dub as there was on the release of NA PS2.
Gameplay is addictive
Gameplay is addictive. Each of the 6 characters (plus one “hidden” character, Chibi Fumiko) plays quite differently, each needing their own strategy and style of play.
Scoring makes the game as difficult as you want – want lots of coins? Put it all at risk by getting as close to bullets or enemies as you can and knowing your shikigami to clear them. Want to play it safe? Stay back and let your normal shot take care of things … but that way you won’t get so many lives and bombs.
At the top of it, you have unique and interesting stages and lots, lots of memorable and interesting basses and mini basses. Outside of the first mid-boss, each boss has his own tricks and some human characters who are your competitors and go beyond what you see, a Touhou game (in fact it is quite possible that ZUN To respect, or imitate, various patterns of his attack, as he would not).
