Great news for fans of shoot'em ups featuring sword-wielding crafts (e.g. Radiant Silvergun, Bangai-O): here's a new shoot'em up featuring a sword-wielding mecha! Seisou Kouki Strania is the latest from G.rev, the Japanese developer behind other shmups like Senko no Ronde and Border Down.

The game will offer two-player support both online and offline. Along with the ability to switch between three weapons, players' robots will be able to take advantage of an "Over Dose" feature that gives them limited invulnerability for a short time and multiplies their score.

According to Mecha Damashii, G.rev plans to release Seisou Kouki Strania to Xbox Live Arcade in Japan late next year. It hasn't yet announced any plans to localize the game for other regions. You can check out screenshots of the title from 4Gamer after the break:
