Developer PlatinumGames Publisher Hamster Corporation Format PC, PS4, Switch Origin Japan Release TBA
No joke, PlatinumGames really is making the sequel to a game released in 1985. On April Fool’s Day last year, a trailer for Sol Cresta was the punchline to the studio’s promised four announcements. (No, we didn’t really get it either.) But now it turns out it’s real after all, iterating on the hot docking action of Nihon Bussan’s arcade shoot-’em-ups, with a variety of attacks that shift depending on the configuration of your three styles of spacecraft.
