A recreation of the 10+ year old Sky Force, Sky Force Anniversary is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita in summer 2016, Crunching Koalas and Infinite Dreams announced today. It will feature cross-buy and cost $9.99, but a Platinum Trophy won’t be included.
An air-based shoot ’em up, Sky Force Anniversary includes a single-player campaign where you have to save the world from the evil General Mantis. You’ll do this by destroying enemies, collecting funds, rescuing civilians, and enhancing your ship with new power-ups.
The description adds:
Sky Force Anniversary allows players to choose between various types of weapons, passive skills and power-ups, starting from the impenetrable magnetic shield and ending with the mighty mega-bomb that annihilates all visible enemies with a huge blast. Enemies? What about them? Well, there’s a plethora of opponents and bosses waiting on every corner, there are tanks, fighters, choppers, ships, turrets, bombers – basically, Sky Force Anniversary has them all.
