5pb is branching out from visual novels with an original vertical shooter called Bullet Soul. Manga artist Akio Watanabe created the game’s characters. Let’s take a look at them and their ships.
The Xbox 360 game has the usual features you would expect from a shooter: online leaderboards, 16:9 widescreen support, and replay data sharing. Replays should be useful since stages have hidden bonuses. 5pb also says Bullet Soul has hidden characters to find. Bullet Soul is slated for release this winter in Japan.
