Raiden V Will Melt Your Brain in 2015

Raiden, the longstanding side-scrolling shooter series, appears to be getting its latest iteration sooner than we think. Raiden V, set to release in 2015, has been spotted at Microsoft’s booth at TGS 2014. While it’s unclear which platforms this gorgeous title will hit, one can safely assume that it’ll hit the Xbox One. Microsoft’s newest console has sold pitifully in Japan thus far, with less than 30,000 units being sold during its first week on the Japanese market. However, while it may not save the Xbox One’s Japanese fortunes, a title such as Raiden V might begin to turn the tides. One only has to take a quick look at these beautiful screenshots to see that Raiden V means business (click to expand):
