Castle Shikigami 2 and Its Overly Literal Translation Are Now Available on PSN

Castle Shikigami 2

Vertical scrolling shooter Castle Shikigami 2 is now available on PlayStation Network for $9.99, the PlayStation Blog has confirmed. Originally released in the arcade, Castle Shikigami 2 was ported to multiple home consoles, including the PlayStation 2, GameCube, Dreamcast and Xbox.

This scrolling shooter didn’t sell well to a poorly managed marketing campaign, but it was well received by critics for its solid gameplay and humorous translation. Whoever worked in the translation thought it would be a good idea to include some incomprehensible lines and that combined with a flat and unemotional voice acting. If you don’t believe me, you can find some quotes on this site.

Castle Shikigami 2 is now available on PSN as a PlayStation 2 Classic.
