How can I play with 2 players co-op in Akai Katana Shin(Red) and Zetsu Akai Katana(Violet)?
I can only play with 2 players in arcade mode (Akai Katana=Blue) .

Shin and Zetsu are single player only.

SIN has a 4.95 billion "true ending" (TLB) Shin mode 1CC up on the leaderboards now. Really nice except for Stage 6, where he breaks his chain in the middle and loses out on a lot of points from that point on. Looks like this is the main reason why he didn't approach the 5.7 billion total he pieced together in Training mode a bit ago. Anyway, everything else is awesome and what he does on the TLB is a thing of beauty, so it's definitely worth a download and a watch.

Fun fact: SIN and Shin are the same word in Japanese (meaning "true"), just romanized differently.

The rest of kuchiniko's run is now up. Nice way of dealing with the TLB.

I wish he would have just uploaded a replay instead of having people watch it in garbage quality.  :-X

I really haven't had much time to be serious with this game yet at all. I've just been dling random replays and watching.

Just started playing this today , Shin and Zetsu look gorgeous on my CRT 4.3 VGA Monitor but arcade looks stretched and washed out which is a shame , Would probably look better on a low res CRT ?

Im still totally confused how to play this properly tho ? I think this game deserves a proper guide  :(

Did you try turning Wide Mode OFF? If you start a game in Arcade mode, then hit Start to Pause it and navigate to the video options, it's the bottom one.

Okay. Then you should try playing arcade mode in 480p or another non-wide resolution. It's a 2 minute thing to change right before you launch the game.

Not sure if it's up on the leaderboards. He says he's curious if GFA-ISO will have a higher score than this on the upcoming DVD.

Oops, scratch that. I didn't notice before that that score is NOT a 1CC - he used 58 retries to get the "perfect" scoring run. So it's basically the upper limit of what is possible, but shouldn't be viewed as the current WR. SIN got a 6.3bil 1CC score yesterday, and it's on the leaderboards:
