We are excited to announce that we are partnering with indie publisher Digerati to bring Shikhondo – Soul Eater, an intense bullet-hell shoot 'em up, to the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in Asia this summer.

Created by Korean-based independent developer DeerFarm, Shikhondo - Soul Eater features hypnotic barrage patterns, enemies inspired by Asian mythology, and stunning Oriental artwork.
