Sisters Royale

Previously released on the PlayStation 4 and Switch, Chorus Worldwide and Alfa System today announced that Sisters Royale: Five Sisters Under Fire will be releasing digitally for the Xbox One this Friday, July 10th.

Developed by the team behind the cult classic 2001 shoot ’em up Castle Shikigami, Sisters Royale allows players to choose from five sisters, each with unique mystical abilities, as they attempt to capture the heart of an angel. The game features a distance-based scoring mechanic dubbed the Tension Bonus System (TBS) along with a Power-shot System that boosts the sisters’ attack levels.

Check out the game’s trailer below:

“We’re super excited to be working with Alfa System to bring Sisters Royale to a global audience,” said Shintaro Kanaoya, Founder of Chorus Worldwide in a press release distributed this morning. “The original Castle of Shikigami series is a beloved classic of the genre and having Alfa System come back to make a modern spiritual successor is thrilling. With its tongue-in-cheek storyline, gameplay and production values from a team at the height of their 30 years in the industry, we think Sisters Royale will appeal to shmup fans of all levels, as well manga and anime lovers around the world.”

“After receiving many calls for a sequel, we are happy to introduce a brand new game that retains some key elements from Castle of Shikigami series”, Naoki Suda, Producer of Alfa System, “in Sisters Royale the players will find the same ‘high risk, high return’ game mechanics that they enjoyed in the series, with additional obstacles that redefine the game, including ‘slippery ice floors’ and ‘wind blowing windmill’.

Sisters Royale: Five Sisters Under Fire will be available this Friday on the Xbox One Games Store for $13.99 / €13.99 / £11.74 and you can pre-order the game now.
