Sibling rivalry is taken to extremes! All new J-Shmup action from Alfa System, ‘Sisters Royale’ arrives globally on Nintendo Switch and PS4 on January 30, 2020!

The team behind the legendary ‘Castle of Shikigami’ returns with a spiritual successor to the original classic series!

London, UK – January 16, 2020 – Chorus Worldwide and Alfa System are pleased to announce the release of Sisters Royale, a vertical scrolling shoot ‘em up rooted in the style of classic title, ‘Castle of Shikigami’. Originally released in Japan on Nintendo Switch last year, Sisters Royale arrives globally on January 30 on Nintendo eShop and PlayStation Store.

Sisters Royale is inspired by the anime aesthetic of 2001’s ‘Castle of Shikigami’. Five sisters with unique magical powers race to capture the heart of an angel, Yashin. As with ‘Castle of Shikigami’, Sisters Royale deploys power boost mechanics that allow players to gain scores by taking high risks. Now with global online leader board support, the game will appeal to shoot ‘em up novices through to high scoring champions with varying levels of difficulties and obstructions in between.

“We’re super excited to be working with Alfa System to bring Sisters Royale to a global audience” said Shintaro Kanaoya, Founder of Chorus Worldwide. “The original Castle of Shikigami series is a beloved classic of the genre and having Alfa System come back to make a modern spiritual successor is thrilling. With its tongue-in-cheek story-line, game-play and production values from a team at the height of their 30 years in the industry, we think Sisters Royale will appeal to shmup fans of all levels, as well manga and anime lovers around the world.”

“After receiving many calls for a sequel, we are happy to introduce a brand new game that retains some key elements from Castle of Shikigami series”, Naoki Suda, Producer of Alfa System, “in Sisters Royale the players will find the same ‘high risk, high return’ game mechanics that they enjoyed in the series, with additional obstacles that redefine the game, including ‘slippery ice floors’ and ‘wind blowing windmill’.”

Sisters Royale is set to arrive on other platforms with further details to be announced this year.

About Heroland:
Welcome to Heroland—a bright, tropical theme park resort where guests partake in an authentic RPG-styled adventure, exploring dungeons, beating up baddies, and become a legendary hero! Unfortunately, the role-playing becomes reality when Lucky, an unexceptional part-time tour guide, and his guests including Elric, the spoiled, fallen prince of the Knowble Kingdom, unintentionally begin unravelling Heroland’s dark history. Now it’s up to Lucky, Elric and a ragtag team of tourists-turned-heroes to save Heroland (and the world!).

Heroland is directed by Takahiro Yamane (Fantasy Life), written by Nobuyuki Inoue (MOTHER 3, Legend of Mana), taking place in a colourful 2D world created by Nobuhiro Imagawa (MOTHER 3, Legend of Mana), and jam-packed with Tsukasa Masuko’s (Shin Megami Tensei) whimsical tunes. The esteemed team brings an unforgettable adventure filled with unique heroes including overzealous knights, high school girls, pretentious princes and a nihilistic otter (or is he human?!). And no adventure set in a theme park would be complete without a curious cast of monsters including cute little slugs, selfie-loving skeletons and man-eating broccoli — who also happen to be co-workers.
