PlatinumGames has announced the final release date for Sol Cresta.
The shmup developed by the Japanese studio was originally scheduled for last December, but it was delayed indefinitely in a curious stream titled “Sol Cresta: Hideki Kamiya’s Very Sorry Stream”, which the creative controversy made public.
This weekend, however, a new stream confirmed that the sequel to the legendary Moon Cresta and Terra Cresta will finally go on sale February 22, with versions for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Its price will be forty dollars.
Sol Cresta is the first of the titles planned this year by Platinumgames. The company that now runs Atsushi Inaba (replacing former CEO Kenichi Sato) will release Babylon’s Fall, an action-RPG published by Square Enix, in March, and on a date yet to be determined in 2022 the expected Bayonetta 3, published by Nintendo and exclusive for Switch. Additionally, they are still working on Project GG, a title announced in February 2020 that will be the first self-published by Platinum itself.
