“A sequel to Moon Cresta and Terra Cresta in this day and age? And from PlatinumGames? And it’s not an April Fools joke after all?!” Anyways, to explain a bit for those who may not know, Moon Cresta and Terra Cresta (and the awesome mecha spin-off UFO Robo Dangar)were released in the 80s by a game company called Nihon Bussan, also known as Nichibutsu. Both games were vertically scrolling shooters that included a play mechanic where you docked with friendly ships. At a time when shooting games where you fought alone were the norm, aggressive gameplay that made your ship more powerful as you docked with allies had gamer kids burning with excitement back then, and both games took a place in gaming history. Sol Cresta itself is a “free-form docking and shooting” game that PlatinumGames will release, and it bridges the gap of 36 (!!) years since the release of Terra Cresta in 1985 as the official sequel and next entry in the Cresta series - disregarding Terra Cresta 2 and Terra Cresta 3D then. Announcement trailer - not an April's fool after all: Gameplay trailer: More info on the gameplay mechanics here: >> https://www.platinumgames.com/official-blog/article/11362 Should release in 2022.
Eleven years after its initial release, the trusty 3DS is getting one last hurrah in the form of a Japanese indie shoot'em-up sequel to a genre cult classic from almost three decades ago. T3h hardc0r3. The first Andro Dunos was a side scrolling arcade game in the shoot’em up category. It was originally released almost thirty years ago in 1992 by SNK. Some 29 years have passed since the Earth Defence first called on Yellow Cherry and Red Fox to stop the imminent invasion from an unknown alien race. Many light years away on the edge of our galaxy the threat has reared its ugly head once again and this time they mean business. There’s just one thing to do, dust off the finest Earth Defence ships ever made and send the alien scum packing. It’s apparent that these relics from a war time that was forgotten had seen better days and only one ship -the Yellow Cherry- could be saved using parts from the Red Fox which was critically damaged in the first war. Are you up for the task of saving the earth once more? As the direct sequel to one of the most famous sh'mups from the early 1990s, Andro Dunos II presents you with an epic side-scrolling space journey full of arcade action! Fight and explode hundred of spaceships thanks to various weapons such as laser, hawk, and even powerful homing missiles. You can recover power ups by destroying enemies. Music composed by industry veteran Allister Brimble (Alien Breed, Body Blows, Project-X, Colonization, Driver). Launch trailer: Out now on the 3DS and most other platforms
