Introduction

A brand-new recipe for the shooting genre which rewards survival through aggressive play.

Blending classic shooting game design with a solid dash of modern day bullet hell, this soul food dish has it all! Destroy enemies at close quarters to build your multiplier, and see their bullets rendered harmless.

Scour the stages for secret bonuses to push your score to even greater heights.

Bringing even more heat are Resonator: the moniker of aural wizards Kenji 'Itoken' Ito and Kohta Takahashi, setting fire to your speakers with their tunes.

Last but not least, Akio Watanabe lends his skills to the scene, bringing forth some fresh character designs.

Story

Mecha-warl, an empire of evil, who would use their military might to conquer space itself.

This is the tale of the brave few who stood against their threat.

The first, a lone space pirate who swore revenge when Mecha-warl killed his parents.

His name was Fugu Taiten Zenichi.

The second, a galaxy patrol officer forced to take on the mission of wiping out Mecha-warl.

Her name was Tenba Koukuu Yun.

The third, a brave king, recklessly declaring war on Mecha-warl to extend his own borders.

His name was Oudou Rakudo Sadahl.

The final member, a lone android, developed to oppose Mecha-Warl, continues its battle despite Earth’s defeat.

Its name was Yuou Maishin Loop.

And so begins the struggle upon which the fate of space itself rests...

Fugu Taiten Zenichi

Tenba Koukuu Yun

Oudou Rakudo Sadahl

Yuou Maishin Loop

Game System

A vertically scrolling shooter controlled using the directional pad and three buttons.

Use the pad to move, tap shot or hold rapid fire to use Wide Shot’s reach or hold shot for the powerful Cross Shot. The bomb button launches a bomb, which can save you in a pinch, but come in limited quantities.

Defeating an enemy renders their shots harmless.

In other words, the key to success is not avoiding enemy fire, but rather destroying the enemies as quickly as you can. This is how an aggressive shooting game should be played!

Normal Mode

3 different ships to choose from and a true final boss waiting at the end of the second loop.

Bancho Mode

A single stage score-attack mode so you can perfect the game stage by stage.

Caravan Mode

A timed score-attack mode to take you back to summers past.

Version B

An extra ship to select and rebalanced game with emphasis on destructive fun.

Achievements

Vertical Screen Mode

Rotate your monitor for that authentic arcade shooting experience!

Introduction

Bullet Soul is back with a new recipe: Burst! The same aggressive, bullet-cancelling gameplay, flashy pyrotechnics and addictive action, but now with refined level design, more modes and more destruction!

To top this dish off, Jake ‘virt’ Kaufman has cooked up some red-hot remixes!

Shooting fans of all abilities, it's time to welcome back the true spirit of Japanese shooting games!

Game System

BURST MODE

A new mode where defeating enemies earns points and also drops coins. The Soul Gauge from Normal Mode is replaced with the Burst Gauge which, when full can be used to activate the combination burst.

Once activated, combination burst vastly increases the ships power, whilst also increasing the number of enemies spawning boosting both the game’s pace and the risk factor.

Collecting coins without missing any is the key to a high score so keeping an eye on them while also destroying the enemy is essential.

NORMAL MODE

A vertically scrolling shooting game controlled using the directional pad and three buttons.

The former controls ship movement, the buttons control attacks.

Wide Shot can be fired via rapidly pressing the shot button or holding the rapid shot button, Cross Shot by holding the shot button down.

The bomb button launches a limited-use, emergency bomb.

Destroying an enemy nullifies any shots they have fired. In other words, rather than concentrating on dodging, the key is to focus on destroying enemies.

This is where the game differs from the manic shooting or ‘bullet-hell’ genre.

Enemy attacks and formations have been completely overhauled from “Bullet Soul”

CARAVAN MODE

The scoring system is the same as Normal Mode, but you have no bombs and unlimited lives.

The secret to a high score is discovering the various secret bonuses and how they work alongside destroying waves of enemies as fast as possible to fast-forward subsequent waves.

MUSOU MODE

The core systems are the same as in Normal Mode, but now you can blast through enemies with the "Combined Burst" feature available in Burst Mode.

In this mode, unleash your beast mode, overwhelm enemies, and you can even defeat the boss in a flash.

*Previous only available as a hidden mode on other consols, now playable from the very beginning on Nintendo Switch!
