It was too good to be true, wasn't it? Japanese developer PlatinumGames had four lovely announcements lined up for us over the past couple of months or so, with the final one landing on April Fools Day. Surely this cool reveal would be a welcome break from everyone's attempt at a joke, right? Well, we were wrong. PlatinumGames' fourth announcement is indeed one big gag, as you can see in the trailer above.
After The Wonderful 101 Remastered, Project G.G., and a new studio in Tokyo, the final thing is an arcade machine for a game called Sol Cresta. It is based on classic side-scrolling shoot em ups Moon Cresta and Terra Cresta from the 1980s. We're not entirely sure what the "joke" is here, because we've never even heard of these titles before, we have to admit.
What we can say, however, is that you shouldn't be getting any hopes up for the developer's last reveal. Sol Cresta appears to be it, tricking us all in the process. Were you hoping for something different? Share your sorrows in the comments below.
