Remember this time last year when PlatinumGames pranked everyone with the announcement of a new arcade shoot ’em up known as Sol Cresta? Well, now – a year later (believe it or not), it’s announced the same game really is happening and will be coming to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PC at some point in 2021.
The announcement trailer featured above and below notes how the game is “now in development” – so stay tuned for more updates, like a release date. As we previously mentioned, this title is based on the ’80s side-scrolling shoot em’ ups Moon Cresta and Terra Cresta, and will apparently be the first entry in Hamster’s “Neo-Classic Arcade” series.
It’s worth pointing out Hamster retweeted the below tweet and filed a logo trademark for Sol Cresta last month.
Back in January, Hideki Kamiya told fans this particular announcement would be “smaller in scale” compared to the previous ones, but expected it to still be exciting. Noticeably, there’s also a new “2021” date on the PlatinumGames’ website. Fingers crossed it’s got something to do with Bayonetta 3.
