Sisters Royale Explodes Onto Xbox One!


Sister Royale tells an ancient story of five sisters who, when combined their formidable magic powers, would be able to defeat an evil force, Seytan! On one fine day five sisters with considerable magic powers were born. So case closed, you might think. Easy peasy to defeat that Seytan now, right? However no matter how long the people waited, the sisters did not defeat Seytan. And you know why? Because they completely and utterly despice each other! So the world is going to hell in a handbag, because five sisters are to stubborn to cooperate? I'm afraid so, but there might be a little ray of sunshine here and that's you!


After the story is explained to you, the menu follows accompanied, by a very happy Japanese sound. I get to meet the sisters, all five of them. I don't know how serious things are between them, but at least they still talking to each other. They are not busy with Seytan, they have more important stuff to discuss, because Prince Yashin is ready to choose a bride and these five sisters agree on one thing: prince Yashin is the most handsome and bravest man they know and they all longed to be his princess. After they burned each other to the ground with words, it's time to pick your favourite sister and start entering levels and of course come out all bridy and victorious!


Sister 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 for high rewards. Now with global online leaderboard support, the game will appeal to everyone, from shoot ‘em up virgins to deft-fingered experts,  and every level of experience in between.  It gets more difficult in a steady pace. You can shoot enemies, but they will shoot back of course. All together...at the same time...with much ammo of all kinds. In short, there is a lot to keep your eye on so you don't loose your precious coins, or even worse, your life!  

At the start you can choose to take the role of one of the five Sisters: Selma, Nur, Sonay, Lale and Ece. I choose Sonay, because she is the oldest sister in the game and I am the older sister in real life, at least of my own family that is. And I'm happy to tell you guys that I won over my prince and saved the world, together with my sisters. How, I hear you ask? How it became possible the sisters made peace with each other and were able to defeat the evil forces of Seytan? Well, I think you have to dive into this crazy shoot 'm up adventure to discover that secret.
                                           
“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 storyline, gameplay 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’.”

This game was already released for PS4 and Nintendo Switch and since July 10 Xbox owners can jump into the blasting fun!
