Cast your minds back a couple a months ago, we had a Kickstarter for ambitious Space Harrier inspired on-rails shooter, Xenocider. The campaign didn’t quite reach the heights required for funding which was seen as a great shame for the DC community in general and really showed that perhaps rather than a lack of enthusiasm, it pointed to the diminishing returns in regards to hardware supply drying up year on year which we looked at in an earlier post.
Well, Retro Sumus are back and the game is now available to pre-order from their website, touting a July 2017 release date, there’s plenty of time to get your order in…. If you want the regular edition that is. Keen collectors have no doubt spotted the ultra limited PAL release which will only get a print run of 50 and is priced at an eye-watering 100 Euros presumably due to the cost of the blue European boxes and relative outlay making the game possible, this example comes with the soundtrack disc too, sadly we just can’t justify the cost of this version of the game.
However, there’s a version for everyone if you’re a steel book fan, there’s another 100 Euro release covering you there, also there’s a collector’s edition at 60 Euros which one would assume is the DVD box release and rounding off the range is the 45 Euro standard Jewelcase release which is still pretty as a peach with it’s Japanese style Dreamcast fonts and box design – there really is something for everyone.
We’re going to be mighty jealous of those with deep enough pockets for the PAL version for sure! Secure your copy at the link below :
