Wish upon a star

If you’re reading this, then you’re doing it wrong. Skip through all of the text and just watch the awesome SEGA CD-inspired trailer below. Then try to tell us that you’re not excited for Cosmic Star Heroine, the upcoming sci-fi RPG love-letter in production at two-man development outfit Zeboyd Games. The title was confirmed for the PlayStation 4 and Vita during Sony’s alarmingly fruitful PAX Prime 2013 panel overnight.

Inspired by old-school favourites such as Chrono Trigger, Phantasy Star, and Suikoden, the title puts you under the crimson beret of Alyssa L'Salle, one of the galactic government’s top spies. Upon uncovering a huge conspiracy, the private eye has her cover blown by her own employers, and must deal with the repercussions, as she’s headhunted by every organisation that she’s crossed.

While the title has been confirmed for the PS4 and Vita, the studio’s looking for additional funds to make it sing. As such, you’ll be able to pre-purchase the game through Kickstarter – it’ll cost you a measly $10 for a cross-buy copy – and contribute to its development. More details are forthcoming, but this is probably one that you’re going to want to back. It looks (and sounds) absolutely brilliant.
