Natsume has announced that you can now pre-order the newest entry in the beloved multi-directional shooter series, Pocky & Rocky Reshrined, in America and the UK!

Controlling Shinto shrine maiden Pocky and her tanuki companion Rocky, this is the first new entry in the Kiki Kaikai series in nearly 21 years and pre-orders for the physical versions have gone live on Amazon — ccheck out these pre-order deals at the bottom of the page.

Long-time fans of the series, and collectors, will also have a chance to secure a Limited Edition from Strictly Limited Games. These aren't open yet, but keep your eyes open.

Pocky & Rocky Reshrined launches in Japan on 21st April, with an English release date yet to be revealed, although the US Amazon listing carries a 31st May release date — whether that's just for the physical versions is unclear at present. We presume you'll get to wield your ofuda and gohei sometime before the summer arrives.

We can't wait to return to the shrines and save them from the demons lurking about. In the meantime, check out the latest trailer at the top of the page, and let us know whether you'll be snagging a physical release of the game!
