Remember this time last year when PlatinumGames pranked everyone with the announcement of a new arcade shooting them up known as Sol Cresta? Now, a year later, on the same date, the same game was announced really happens and coming to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PC at some point this year.
The announcement trailer mentioned above notes how the game is “now under development” – so stay tuned for more updates, such as a release date. As we mentioned earlier, this title is based on 80s scrolling shoot-ups Moon Cresta and Terra Cresta, and will be the first entry in Hamster’s “Neo-Classic Arcade”
It’s worth noting the Hamster retweeted the following tweet, archiving a trademark logo for Sol Cresta last month.
Back in January, Kamiya told fans that this announcement would be a bit “smaller in scale” compared to the previous announcements, but that it would still be exciting. Notably, there is also a new icon displayed on the PlatinumGames website that is scheduled to be unveiled at some point this year. Fingers crossed it has something to do with Bayonetta 3.
