Check out the ‘Raiden IV x MIKADO Remix’ Announcement trailer: 

The Crystals have returned, threatening the world and humanity as we know it – until their forces are neutralised, no one is safe.

It’s down to you and the latest Raiden fighter craft technology – the Fighting Thunder ME-02 Kai to protect the earth, and send the Crystals hurtling back to the darkest reaches of space!

From the arcade to home consoles, this summer will be the first time Raiden IV x MIKADO Remix will make its way to Nintendo Switch in a physical boxed format in Europe.

Available on Amazon!

Originally launched in Japanese arcades, Raiden IV changed the future of shoot ’em ups and amassed a huge cult following.

The vertical scrolling shooter lands players in the cockpit of a fighter craft, blasting through waves of enemies and dodging the bullet-hell of return fire, against the backdrop of neon arcade aesthetics and rapid tempo, electronic BGM.

Featuring an all-new remixed soundtrack, switch between Raiden IV‘s original background music or the brand new setlist produced by Game Centre MIKADO!

With 16 tracks reborn with live performances and new arrangements and a huge range of popular Japanese artists, including:

Go Sato Band / HEAVY METAL RAIDEN / Soshi Hosoi / FANTOM IRIS / O.T.K / Daisuke Matsumoto [CAVE] / Keishi Yonao / Hirokazu Koshio [COSIO]

Choose from one of three fighters to fend off and obliterate the Crystal forces:

Fighting Thunder ME-02

Raiden-MK II

and Fairy!

Each fighter utilises their own unique playstyle, from weapons to bullets and movement.
