Moss, the developer of Raiden series, is combining their shooter knowhow with Devil Survivor artist Suzuhito Yasuda and sound studio Basiscape to make Caladrius. This upcoming Xbox 360 game is a vertical shooter with a level up system. Players can choose three different characters Alex, Kay, and Maria. Yasuda also drew character art for bosses like Iris who is wearing a purple dress.
Event scenes in Caladrius’ story mode have voice acting. Moss also added a boss rush mode, score attack mode, and world ranking system. World ranking? Hmm… I wonder if that means Caladrius will be released overseas or at least be region free. Caladrius is scheduled for release on April 25 for 7,140 yen ($77). A 9,240 yen ($99) limited edition includes an art book and soundtrack CD as a bonus.
