Assault Android Cactus: Bullet Hell for PS4 and Vita

Just announced over on the Euro PlayStation Blog is Assault Android Cactus. Here's the trailer!

Just announced over on the EU PlayStation blog is Assault Android Cactus, an old-school feeling, new-school-looking shooter that's coming soon to PS4 and Vita.

The game draws inspiration from Williams' classic Robotron 2084 and Smash TV coin-ops, and features characters on a mission to wrest control of a spaceship from a veritable horde of rampaging robots. Which basically means 25 levels of arcade mayhem, and besting a series of "bullet hell" boss monsters to save the day.

The player has eight different characters to choose from, each with their own unique primary and secondary weapons that range from homing missiles and heavy cannons to machine guns and flamethrowers. The action promises to be very aggressive, and the player needs to throw caution to the winds to make progress. That sounds like my cup of tea, so I'm pretty much already sold. The game hits Europe early next year. No US release has been announced as of yet, but since it's a cross-play downloadable game, there's no reason why we should have to expect any delays. Right? Right??
