Defend the Earth from a Mysterious Invading Force with Powerful Customizable Mechs in this HD Remake
LONDON, UK – April 06, 2016 – Pursuing our quest to bring unique and diverse games to players everywhere, we are partnering with Japanese developer Dracue Software to publish Assault Suit Leynos for PlayStation®4 and PC. Drawing from the fantastic action of the classic 16-bit series (also known as Target Earth), the Assault Suit series is well-known for fierce and fast shooting action, challenging boss battles, and an amazing array of weapon options. Assault Suit Leynos stays true to these gameplay elements and delivers HD visuals for the ultimate alien-blasting experience.
“The slick production values and fast-paced action make Assault Suit Leynos an incredibly addictive game,” said Martin Defries, managing director of Rising Star Games. “This title is both challenging and rewarding and a great example of the type of game, borne out of Japan, that we love working with here at Rising Star Games. Fans of old-school shooters will absolutely feel that familiar thrill and quickening of the pulse when they start blasting wave upon wave of enemies.”
As Earth reels from the impact of a fourth world war and dwindling resources, an uneasy truce between nations sees mankind reach for the stars. Colonies are settled, resources are mined, and the future starts looking a little brighter. But just as peace finally seems possible, an unknown enemy emerges from the deepest region of space to threaten the very existence of humanity. Only one thing can stop them – It’s time to deploy the Assault Suit Squadron! Gamers will blast through the opposing enemy forces with devastating weapons like machine guns, rocket launchers, and laser beams while discovering the hidden truth behind the invaders.
Developed by Dracue Software, Assault Suit Leynos will be available summer 2016 on PlayStation®4 and PC through select digital retailers. The physical boxed release of the PlayStation®4 version includes a deluxe double-sided poster featuring artwork from the Japanese release as well as original art from the classic 16-bit release.
