PlatinumGames and Hamster Corporation announced that their shmup, Sol Cresta, has been delayed on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC-via Steam from its December 9, 2021 release date.
The stream was full of a few laughs as the developer read a letter about how the release of Viewtiful Joe was delayed. Now, they are saying the delay of Sol Cresta is a similar circumstance.
The story is currently developing, we’ll keep you updated on any additional release date or timing.
The live stream is hosted on the developer’s Youtube channel, featuring:
- Hideki Kamiya (Chief Game Designer, PlatinumGames Inc.)
- Takahito Washisaka(Producer, Sol Cresta)
The Director of Sol Cresta Takanori Sato was supposed to be on the panel, but he decided to continue to work on the game. The stream also shared additional gameplay features that have been added to the game.
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.
