Remember this time last year when PlatinumGames pranked everyone with the announcement of a new arcade shoot ’em up known as Sol Cresta? Well, now – a year later, on the same date, it’s announced the same game really is happening and will be coming to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PC at some point this year.
The announcement trailer featured above notes how the game is “now in development” – so stay tuned for more updates, like a release date. As we previously mentioned, this title is based on the ’80s side-scrolling shoot em’ ups Moon Cresta and Terra Cresta, and will be the first entry in Hamster’s “Neo-Classic Arcade” series.
Back in January, Kamiya told fans this announcement would be a little “smaller in scale” compared to the previous announcements, but should still be exciting. Noticeably there’s also a new icon on display on the PlatinumGames’ website that’s scheduled to be revealed at some point this year. Fingers crossed it’s got something to do with Bayonetta 3.
