Seibu Kaihatsu's Raiden shoot-'em-up series will return on the Xbox One, a teaser trailer shown at Microsoft's TGS booth revealed this week.

Tracing its origins back to the 1990 release of Raiden in arcades, the vertically scrolling series saw multiple ports and releases across 16- and 32-bit consoles. Arcade-born series predecessors Raiden 4 and Raiden Fighters Aces made appearances on the Xbox 360, and the upgraded Raiden 4: Overkill was revealed for the PlayStation 3 earlier this year.

Raiden 5 is due to launch for the Xbox One in 2015.
