PlatinumGames and Hamster Corporation announced that the livestream to reveal the release date of their shmup, Sol Cresta, has been delayed.
Initially set to be announced on their YouTube channel on Friday, January 7, 2022, at 7 PM PT, but the team has encountered technical issues that won’t allow them to conduct the livestream. This doesn’t seem to have anything to do with the state of the game and the developer has promised that this will only be a short delay.
Sol Cresta gameplay features where players will be able to dock with friendly ships to unlock new powerups. Further, ships can be reconfigured during a stage to change bullet spreads, and ships can also fire in multiple directions depending on the configuration. The team has dubbed this “Free-Form docking and shooting action.”
PlatinumGames initially teased this game as a joke, but the developer has recently begun self-publishing their titles as well with the release of Wonderfull 101 Remastered for modern platforms. It seems they won’t be hosting a crowdfunding campaign for Sol Cresta, which was speculated when it was revealed.
Sol Cresta is in development for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC-via Steam.
We’ll keep you updated on its development.
