The Musical Space Odyssey ‘Sixtar Gate: STARTRAIL’ Announced; Releasing for PC and Switch This Year

Developers Lyrebird Studio and Magical Works alongside publisher CFK have announced that their upcoming rhythm game, Sixtar Gate: STARTRAIL, will be releasing for PC and Nintendo Switch later this year.

This title features space travel and musical-based storytelling coupled with charming artwork to give the rhythm gameplay more of an inherent, distinct identity. Players become the captain of a space vessel and, with their endearing navigation partner, Shii, aim to explore the Sixtar System. As players explore numerous colonized planets, the secretive stories buried within these areas’ pasts come to light with the power of music.

Main Producer Lyrebird Ferdinant has worked on rhythm titles Pump It Up and OverRapid and the Sound Director, Sound Souler, is a talented composer who has created melodic, dream-like songs in various musical experiences.

The game aims to provide an engaging experience both veterans of the genre and newcomers can enjoy without the need to force a welcoming challenge in intrusive ways.
