We’ve learned (via NeoGAF) that Circle Entertainment is localizing the 3DS shmup, Karous: The Beast of Re:Eden.
The game was originally developed by Klon and released in Japan on January 23rd of this year, although now it’s coming west on April 30th, for $6.99. You can find the game’s official Nintendo.com page here. While the Japanese had both a physical and digital release, the North American release is a digital only one.
Here’s the full synopsis of the game:
Two sisters escape their fate as research subjects and fight to survive using aircrafts of war.
Karous: The Beast of Re:Eden is a 3D vertical shoot ‘em up game. This game allows players to design their own aircraft by letting them choose which weapons and items they take with them into battle.
The player’s aircraft can use shields, different shots, bombs, and swords. Each of these will also level up the more they’re used and increase in power. Additional weapons and items will unlock as the player progresses, as well.
Karous: The Beast of Re:Eden features over 100 missions to complete along with a number of achievements in addition to boss battles.
Unlike other, traditional shooting games, Karous‘ mission system gives the player the freedom to follow multiple, branching paths which can lead to different endings.
