Hideki Kamiya is a lover of old-time shoot ’em up games, as are other members of PlatinumGames. For this reason and true to its freedom and desire to work on fun projects, the studio announced last year that sun crest, a game that was previously presented as an April Fools’ Day joke, would be a reality and, if you still doubted the existence of the game, prepare yourself, that very soon you will be able to play it.
The title was going to debut in 2021, but at the end of the year it had to be pushed back to 2022, but the good news is that the wait won’t last that long. As promised days ago, PlatinumGames held a broadcast today in which they presented more details of the game, which was showcased with several minutes of frantic gameplay typical of a space shoot ’em up.
