Sol Cresta will be released this year as a download title on the Nintendo Switch, the PlayStation 4, and Steam. “It is a brand new title bearing the soul of the classic docking and shooting games Moon Cresta (1980) and Terra Cresta (1985),” says developer Platinum Games in an official statement.

The Osaka-based studio is perhaps most famous for Bayonetta and Nier: Automata, and many of its games feel arcade-influenced. This game is the final part of the “Cresta Saga” but is also the first in Platinum Games’ new Neo-Classic Arcade series of games.

You can watch the debut trailer for Sol Cresta below:

Platinum Games has yet to announce when Sol Cresta will be released other than “coming soon.”

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.

Wait, Moon Cresta is from 1980? That seems... WAY too sophisticated for a video game that is over forty years old.
