A twin-stick retro arcade space shooter, Zotrix from developer ZeroBit is now available on the North American PlayStation Store for PlayStation 4, priced at $14.99. A European release “will follow in the near future.”

Previously released on Steam, the PS4 version of Zotrix adds exclusive content and features:

  • Arcade Mode brings a whole new way to experience the game, with new boss fights in 20 back-to-back missions that emphasize action over the strategic depths of Story Mode.
  • New boss fights with bullet-hell and puzzle components challenge your reflexes and ability to assess and dismantle your enemy.
  • New power-ups and ship types can now be equipped for load outs and play styles not possible in the original release.
  • New missions extend Story Mode with fresh challenges.

As for the game itself, here’s what publishers UFO Interactive and Retroism say:

Zotrix is a twin-stick space shooter that combines the retro look and feel of 80s and 90s arcade games with modern gameplay elements, customization and depth. In Zotrix, players will experience classic fast-paced arcade shooting action that requires quick wits and even faster reflexes, paired with modern gameplay mechanics such as branching mission routes, story-driven quests, ship upgrades, resource trading and more.

Jonathan Wan, CEO of Retroism’s parent company, added, “Fans of arcade shooters and space trading games will find a lot to love with Zotrix. This is a great addition to the Retroism catalogue and we’re pleased to make it our first title available for PS4.”
