Got some awesome news today for fans of retro-style arcade games! Locomalito and Abylight Studios are teaming up again to breath new life into another popular created by Locomalito similar to what they did last year with Maldita Castilla EX. The newest game to receive the Cinderella treatment is Super Hydorah. A non-linear shoot em up with an old-school difficulty, multiple paths and endings? I'm definitely intrigued. The soundtrack is done by Gryzor87, the same man responsible for the Maldita Castilla EX so you know it's going to sound authentically retro! So far, no information is available in regards to the release date or the platforms it will be on, more info is expected to be released in the near future. Here's a blurb from the official press release, along with a rundown of some of the games features:
An evil force has launched an invasion over the Omios star. Only you, the most skilled and deadly pilot of the galaxy, can face the dreadful menace of the Meroptians, bio-mechanical creatures set in a ruthless war of conquest. Equip your ship, select a route and fight planet by planet against the hordes of Meroptians!
