Magazine Reviews:

"For fans of the genre and developer, Akai Katana is going to be one of the best times you’ll have with a game this year. For everyone else, you may just find yourself ascending to bullet hell heaven if you dedicate some time to learning the game’s obscure but absolutely thrilling mechanics." 9/10 Destructoid

"AK doesn’t just deliver a frenzied experience, it seems to take pride in unrelentingly pumping it in your eyeholes." 4/5 stars MAXIM

"Akai Katana Shin is challenging but also satisfying to play. There's a great feeling of accomplishment when you make your way through one of the intricately designed 2D bullet mazes unscathed." 8/10 GameSpot

"It all feels rather complicated at first, but you'll quickly settle into a satisfying groove." 8/10 Official Xbox Magazine
