The price will be 7,992 yen for retail, and 7,344 via download for the Xbox One.
Also revealed is the fact that Raiden V will use the Xbox One cloud to use the play data from you and other players in real-time so that you can trace their trails to help you through the harder areas. The battlefield can also change based on the actions of you and your friends. There will also be a “Cheer System” that allows you to help other players and offer support. With no news of the game moving to the West yet, the fact that the Xbox One is region free may aid in the playing of this one.
