PlatinumGames and Hamster Corporation announced that they will host a live stream to reveal the release date of their shmup, Sol Cresta, on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC-via Steam.
The game received a delay from its 2021 release to fine-tune systems, but the new release will be announced on their YouTube channel on Friday, January 7, 2022, at 7 PM PT.
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.
