Sisters Royale has proven to be a big success with its PS4 and Switch release back in January. It’s praised for its diversity in the five playable characters and proves to have some enjoyable shoot-em-up moments. That, combined with a solid art style and some good music made it a big deal among Japanese gamers. Following this release, Chorus Worldwide and Alfa System are happy to announce that Sisters Royale: Five Sisters Under Fire is coming to Xbox One on July 10th. Tomorrow, players will get to experience the fun, shoot-em-up, action on another console. You can see the trailer below.
Sisters Royale: Five Sisters Under Fire is a spiritual successor to the classic Castle of Shikigami. As one of the five playable sisters, you must race against the remaining four to capture the heart of the angel Yashin. As this is a shoot-em-up though, there’s plenty in your way to put an end to your adventure. You’ll have to employ quick reflexes and use power boost mechanics if you want your sister to reach the finish. With a fair amount of levels and replayability in the five characters, Sisters Royale is a game you shouldn’t miss.
Shintaro Kanaoya, the founder of Chorus Worldwide, had the following to say on the launch:
We’re super excited to be working with Alfa System to bring Sisters Royale to a global audience. 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.”
