Maken X, and its remake Maken Shao are games not related to the Megami Tensei series of games. However, these games are developed by Atlus, with art direction by Kazuma Kaneko; two elements identified in the making of a Megami Tensei title. This is also compounded with Maken X artworks included in Kazuma Kaneko's art books.


Maken X is a first-person action game for the Sega Dreamcast featuring art and character designs by Kazuma Kaneko. In 2001, a heavily altered third-person remake was released under the title Maken Shao (魔剣爻) identified as Maken Shao: Demon Sword in English-speaking territories.

A manga version, Maken X: Another authored and drawn by Kyu Hayashida was released on 21 January, 2001. The manga was published on three volumes. It tells the story of Kei who was forced to be grafted with the living weapon "Machina" when a freak accident occurred in her father's lab. Alongside her childhood friend, they venture into the world of "Images" in an attempt to rescue her father.
