Raiden V - Gamers Heroes
PQube announced today that the shoot-em-up Raiden V: Director’s Cut will arrive on the PlayStation 4 on October 6 in Europe.

The Raiden series is no stranger to the shmup scene, with a rich 27-year history. Raiden V will feature a fully narrated campaign that takes place in locations like New York, Paris, and London as pilots fight off the alien Cranassians.

The game will be in 1080p and will feature a Tri-View HUD and a health bar. Players can take control of one of three ships and charge up their Cheer meter to launch a missile barrage.
