Raiden 4 Coming to North America

UFO Interactive bringing more Raiden goodness to the 360 in August.

Hot on the heels of Valcon Games’ release of Raiden Fighters Aces for Xbox 360 comes UFO Interactive confirming to us that they’ll be bringing Raiden 4 to the American market, also for Microsoft’s system (UFO previously published Raiden III for the PlayStation 2). Originally released in Japan last October, Raiden 4 is a vertical shoot-em-up, and, obviously, the third sequel in the Raiden series, which was one of the first shooters to really use flashy, explosive effects to stand out in the crowd. Raiden 4 on 360 also uses Xbox Live to present global leaderboards and downloadable replays from top scorers, as well as downloadable content like extra ships.

Look for Raiden 4 from UFO in August. To see it in action, check out our Raiden 4 screenshots or some clips of Japanese pro players below.
