an alternate reality, the Earth and particularly Europe has been
ravaged by the effects of an invasive force known as the Neuroi. To
counter their assaults, humanity develops the "Striker Unit" which is an
all-in-one device which grants wearers the power of flight, defensive
measures, and enhances one's propensity for magic. In the world of Strike Witches, cat-eared girls serve as the warriors who don the Striker Units and thrust through the heavens to battle the insidious Neuroi.
Originally a manga/anime, Strike Witches expands its reach with a horizontal shooter on the Xbox 360. The game features a cast of 11 cat-eared girls who are grouped into cadres of three whom take to the skies and shoot down waves upon waves of Neuroi attackers. The girls are:
» Mio Sakamoto
» Lynette Bishop
» Minna-Dietlinde Wilcke
» Erica Hartmann
» Gertrud Barkhorn
» Perrine-H. Clostermann
» Francesca Lucchini
» Charlotte E. Yeager
» Sanya V. Litvyak
» Eila Ilmatar Juutilainen
Strike Witches uses a control scheme that's reminiscent of Robotron where the left thumbstick on the Xbox 360 controller is used for movement and the right thumbstick shoots. This control mechanism allows for flighty movements and rapid-fire 360˚ directional shots as Neuroi enter the screen from all quarters. Furthermore, the trio of girls that the player selects may be arranged in various flight formations to counter threats and overcome obstacles during the course of the game.
The Limited Edition of Strike Witches is packaged with an exclusive Yoshika Miyafuji Nendoroid toy which includes a gun prop, an inner tube prop, a backpack prop, and an extra face to change her expression. The Nendoroid is only being bundled with the Strike Witches LE game and won't be sold or distributed in any other capacity. The quantity of the Limited Edition was allocated by the publisher based on how many Regular Editions we purchased but NCS is able to fill all preorders and accept new reservations as well.
