Shikhondo - Soul Eater is a Korean bullet-hell shoot 'em up set within a beautiful and bizarre world of Asian mythology. Armies of demons known as yokai have escaped from Limbo. They are spreading like a plague across the land, sowing fear and stealing souls. You must destroy the pestilent invaders and free the captured souls from eternal torment. Includes Arcade, Hardcore, and Local Co-op modes and online leaderboards.

Shikhondo - Soul Eater is a dessert shmup. Newcomers won't want to skip ahead to the last course of a meal because there are already so many other dishes to choose from, even at the same restaurant (eShop).

In spite of the wacky and colorful art design, Shikhondo: Soul Eater is a bland and unfulfilling experience. The gameplay is just okay, and there are no hooks that give this Flatline a heartbeat.

Shikhondo - Soul Eater is a frenetic shoot'em up bullet hell, in which its fantastic artistic design and daring soundtrack stand out above all else.

In a nutshell, Shikhondo is a decent game to play on the Nintendo Switch. Again, it seems as if it's mostly for individuals who favor similar gameplay to that of Ikaruga. It can be quite challenging here and there, mostly because cannon-fire comes at you in multiple directions. But the soundtrack and artstyle are both great in their own respects, making this package a mediocre one at best.
