Natsuki Chronicles is a new horizontal Shoot ’em Up that takes place within the same storyline as its predecessor Ginga Force.
The game follows the character Natsuki from a new perspective on the story. Discover her past as a rookie pilot up to present time, with events that happen in the past, in parallel, or even coincide with those in Ginga Force.
Through its unique display of bullet paths, Natsuki Chronicles makes the bullet-hell on screen much more accessible and adds tactical depth to the action. As a sequel to one of the best Shoot 'Em Ups of the '00s, this game was awaited with anticipation by genre-fans and more than met the high expectations!

- Arcade Mode for quick action with Online Leaderboards
- Huge selection of weapon customization with countless combinations
- "Bullet Trajectory Display" for observing the direction of enemy bullets!

The Collector's Edition of Natsuki Chronicles will be a shooting star in your collection!
Its beautifully crafted packaging measures about 32 cm in height and 24 cm in width. A strong inlay structure holds all contents tight in place and opens like a drawer box.
The artwork-heavy and beautifully arranged design is not only eye candy, but also realized on thick and valuable print material.
The same dedication goes into the soundtrack and clear file, which are both imported from and made in Japan to ensure their very best quality.
And that isn't even everything, included are also alternate print designs for the game case and manual for swap-out (shown in the product picture), two themed Chirashi and a double-sided poster to round up one awesome package!
