Origins: In 1990, Seibu Kaihatsu created this vertical shooting game and first of the Raiden series. The simple controls–directional movement and weapons–combined with subtle difficulty and detailed pixel art style, made Raiden an instant success and established it among the greats in the pantheon of shooting games.

Raiden III was released in 2005 and was the first in the series to be 3D. Despite being released eleven years after its predecessor, it faithfully retained the classic Raiden essence fans love.

Raiden III x MIKADO MANIAX celebrates the 30th anniversary of the Raiden series and marks 18 years after the game’s initial release on PS2™, PC, and in arcades. It boasts a multitude of new features on the latest hardware.

Raiden III x MIKADO MANIAX will be available for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S physically and digitally during Summer 2023.
