Xbox One Gets New Game From The Raiden Series

Microsoft has revealed that the Xbox One will be getting an exclusive new entry from the classic action series Raiden that debuted in arcades in the 90’s. This game will simply be called Raiden.

The release of this game also marks the 25th anniversary of the franchise, with this being the sixth game in the main series for the franchise.

My judgment:

I like hearing when classic arcade games are still being made in the midst of the much more complex games being made today. It’s always fun to go back to a simple arcade game where pure gameplay was the sole focus.
