Sin & Punishment: Successor of the Skies, known in North America as Sin and Punishment: Star Successor and in Japan as Tsumi to Batsu: Sora no Kōkeisha (罪と罰 ～宇宙の後継者～ lit. "Sin and Punishment: Successor of the Universe"?) is a 2009 rail shooting video game developed by Treasure and published by Nintendo. It is the sequel to the Nintendo 64 video game Sin and Punishment: Successor of the Earth, another rail shooter originally released only in Japan, and globally through Wii's Virtual Console.
Revealed at Nintendo's conference on October 2, 2008, it was released on the Wii in October 29, 2009 in Japan and on June 27, 2010 in America and May 7, 2010 in Europe. Set many years after the first game, Successor of the Skies focuses on Isa Jo, the son of Saki and Airan from the first game, along with a mysterious young woman named Kachi. It also has online leaderboards for high scores, but after Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection shut down, they no longer work. While the original game featured English voice acting in both the Japanese and English versions, the sequel has Japanese voice acting for the Japanese version, as well as the option to switch between Japanese and English voice acting in the non-Japanese versions.
