News:: Review: Castle of Shikigami

I sort of remember the long and convoluted history of the first Castle of Shikigami game, but I had to stare at a few sources for several minutes just to be sure I had it right.

Years back, a publisher named XS Games licensed Gunbird and the first Castle of Shikagami as Mobile Light Force and Mobile Light Force 2, respectively. It made practically zero sense, especially when you consider that the latter's entire core was stripped entirely from the marketing, and the publisher went with a full-on Charlie's Angels cover that had no resemblance to the actual occult anime angle of Shikigami.

Over a decade later it's returned, but you don't necessarily need to revisit it.
