This week’s Spring Fever 2015 title, Jamestown+, is a PlayStation 4 bullet hell shooter that arrives in North America tomorrow for $11.99 ($10.79 for PlayStation Plus members), while Europe gets it on Wednesday for an undisclosed price.
With Final Form Games having taken a year to develop this PS4 version of Jamestown, they talked about what makes it Jamestown+:
The Armada Matrix
- Three new characters, each with your choice of two unique Special weapons and six new Shot types. You can combine these weapons/shots any way you want, as you would at a delicious salad bar… A SALAD BAR OF VENGEANCE.
Two Completely New Levels
- Set on the mysterious moons of Mars: The Black Garrison of Phobos, and the Shifting Sands of Deimos! These are full-fledged, canonical Jamestown levels with brand-new art, tons of new enemy types, story sequences, full orchestral soundtracks, and huge new bosses like the Pirate Queen.
Original Soundtrack and Sound Effects Remastered for 5.1 Surround Sound
- Honestly, I wasn’t sure this was going to make that much of a difference to the overall game experience. Tim (my brother, also our lead programmer/chieftain) was all like “Dude shut up it’s going to be amazing” and then I was all like “my man, you said that about those Hobbit movies” and then we almost had a Workplace Incident. But you guys? I WAS WRONG, REMASTERED 5.1 SURROUND SOUND MAKES A HUUUUGE DIFFERENCE.
You’ll also be able to buy the Gunpowder, Treason, & Plot DLC, which adds four new ships for two dollars.
For you Trophy hunters, Jamestown+ does include a Platinum.
Will you be picking up Jamestown+ this week?
