Maker - Alfa System   Catalogue No. - T-47702M


Type - Shooting Action



THANK YOU ALFA SYSTEM !!  Alfa System listened to their loyal Dreamcast fans and have brought us Shikigami No Shiro 2 (The Demon God Castle 2 in English) on the 25th March 2004.  From what I can tell, the Dreamcast version seems to have all the same options as the Game Cube version (first console version) including the gallery mode which is a great sign.  There are loads of play modes plus a remixed soundtrack option, full speech for each character that can be switched on or off and a very convenient practice mode.  Each player has a variety of two different attack styles to choose from which can be accessed by pushing left or right on the character select screen.  A great point about Shikigami No Shiro II is that every one of the characters has their own unique way of shooting just like characters of a fighting game have their own unique fighting style.  Personally I haven't tried out every character much yet but it's going to be fun finding out.

I can imagine that a lot of you out there are asking "Is Shikigami No Shiro II better than Psyvariar 2?"  Well, that's a tuff one to answer.  They are both shooters played in a 2D style over 3D backgrounds but I'd say Psyvariar 2 is more of a pattern shooter than Shikigami No Shiro II.  I love both of them but I'd have to say Shikigami No Shiro 2 would be my favorite due to the style of the characters appealing more to me.  As far as game play goes I'd say Psyvariar 2 will have you on the edge of your seats more.

The Dreamcast Limited Deluxe edition comes with a free CD Soundtrack (pictured above) of all the music and character voices featured in Shikigami No Shiro II plus a cool set of 4 character trading cards which you can see below.

But that's not the end of the goodies.  Not only do you get the game, OST and trading cards presented in a beautiful card sleeve but you can also get a very limited Shikigami No Shiro II NTT phone card for use in Japan.  These were only available if you ordered the game direct from Sega Japan or through us here at Segagaga Domain
