Back in 2000, Japanese developer Psikyo released a multi-directional twitch arcade shooter known as Cannon Spike, or Gun Spike in Japan, named after Cammy’s trademark Special Move. It was later released by Capcom that same year for the Sega Dreamcast. The title allowed you to control fan-favorite Capcom characters, such as Arthur, Cammy (whose SFV outfit is based off of this game’s design), Nash, B.B Hood and Mega Man, as you blasted through multiple Capcom-themed stages. Recently, the CFN Portal decided to spotlight the two original characters in the game, Shiba and Simone.

Today we have the mysterious young man Shiba. He seems to be cooperating with Delta Red, the British Special Forces group to which Cammy belongs. Basically, he’s an enemy of Shadaloo.

A former skateboarding world champion. He hates evil since he was involved in a terrorist attack, and he is currently cooperating with Delta Red. He uses a hoverboard, invented by Ginzu. He’s followed by a support robot named Akabi that subjugates mobs and insurgencies by spitting flames from its mouth. Shiba seems to be acquainted with Nash, but when and where they met is unknown.

Next up, we have the second original character from Cannon Spike, Simone! A nasty, bothersome mercenary who aids Delta Red, like the previously introduced youth Shiba. She wields a powerful samurai sword!
