Doublesix Announces Strike Suit Zero for PSN

The makers of Burn Zombie Burn have been hard at work, and have just announced what they’ve been developing at the lab: Strike Suit Zero.

Strike Suit Zero is an arcade space combat game set during the final hours of Earth. Players will get to control “strike suits,” which are able to transform for two different modes, one as a space fighter, and the other as a robotic warrior. It’s slated for release in Q1 of 2012, and will feature branching mission structure, as well as zero gravity fighting. The following brief description and teaser trailer were provided:

Strike Suit Zero is an action-packed arcade game set in the final hours of a future Earth. The clock is ticking; your planet is about to be destroyed and its only hope is the Strike Suit; an advanced, transforming spacecraft that empowers the player with ludicrous firepower and awesome abilities. Every second is precious; you’ll be forced to fight with fury, choose targets on instinct and make snap decisions that will not only affect the outcome of your mission but your path through the game and the ultimate destiny of seven billion lives.

Also, Jim Mummery, creative director at doublesix games had the following to say:

Strike Suit Zero is inspired by the classic space combat games we all love. But our game goes further – it takes that inspiration, pumps up the pace and injects a massive sense of urgency to excite and challenge the player.

It certainly looks and sounds entertaining, so keep an eye out for it when Strike Suit Zero arrives on the PlayStation Network early next year.
