Hot on the heels of Armed 7 which released on the Dreamcast earlier in the year courtesy of Pixel Heart and JoshProd, the team are releasing another Astro Port developed game; Satazius. Playing very similar to Armed 7, you are destroying various enemies and debris in space with the main difference being you control a space craft rather than an advanced soldier this time around.
The game features the same type of weapon choice front end that is found in Armed 7 which is are upgradable, the game aims to be accessible with four difficulty levels to choose from, Graphically Satazius is pleasantly varied with some neat effects retained from it’s 2011 Steam bigger brother.
What’s great here is that this game is being given a second round on the Dreamcast, many perhaps won’t have heard of this game before this point and will maybe want to purchase it physically on the console, which is fast becoming the go-to place for modern shoot-em-ups, much like the Saturn was years before.
You can pick up Satazius before the end of the year via Pixel Heart’s website or Rush On Game with Play Asia no doubt stocking an NTSC designed product, we’ve had the chance to play this and another JoshProd future release (no, not Arcade Racing Legends..) and we were left impressed by both, we’ll have a video review coming once pre-orders open.
