Japanese developer MediaQuest in association with Alfa-System and Kids Station has announced plans to re-release the Xbox shooter Castle of Shikigami in Japan. Originally released last spring, the game is essentially an overhead style 2D shooter. According to company representatives on hand for Tokyo GameShow 2002, an updated version of the game entitled Castle of Shikigami: Evolution is expected to hit Japanese shelves this December for Microsoft's console. Reportedly, the updated version of the game features a new gameplay mode boasting improved AI, new bosses, and vertical screen positioning. Despite its planned re-release in Japan, there are currently no plans to release either version of Castle of Shikigami in America or Europe.
