PlatinumGames announced they will host a live stream surrounding the development of the upcoming shmup Sol Cresta.
However, expectations of the stream should be tamed as the stream is titled “Sol Cresta: Hideki Kamiya’s Very Sorry Stream.” This could mean that the developer is planning to delay the game’s release or announce some issues with development.
The live stream will take place on the developer’s Youtube channel on Tuesday, November 2 at 8 PM PST, with the Stream length being approximately 1 hour, and will feature:
- Hideki Kamiya (Chief Game Designer, PlatinumGames Inc.)
- Takahito Washisaka(Producer, Sol Cresta)
- Takanori Sato (Director, Sol Cresta)
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 to launch on December 9, 2021, for $39.99.
