Dispatch Games has announced today that Psyvariar Delta, a vertical scrolling shooter that aims to give players an intense experience with each playthrough, will be releasing for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in North America and Europe this summer. Previously, the game had only been announced for a Japan release, but it looks like fans all over the world will be able to experience the challenge.
Originally released in 200 under the name Psyvariar -Medium Unit-, the game was also re-rereleased under the title Psyvariar -Revision- before getting this most recent change. This time, the game will be getting a new mode as well as a full HD makeover. Players will also be able to explore a newly designed UI as well as pilot two new planes, which will be available as DLC when the game launches.
For more on the game, check out a brief overview via Dispatch Games below:
First released in arcades in 2000, this enhanced version of the classic shooter retains the classic Buzz system that lets players enjoy the thrill of leveling up by avoiding direct hits and evading enemy attacks just enough to graze their planes.
- New Mode – Players can now set their stage, planes, levels, and experience. In the Replay Mode+, a player can challenge each area with their own plane and bombs. Score Attack Mode allows a player to play for the high score with their difficulty. Both modes will have an online leaderboard to show how you stack up against other players.
- New UI – The new UI shows Ex levels, boss health, and invincible time remaining after leveling up. The new design is easy for beginners to understand while the information helps experts as well. In the options menu, a player can show the hit area for their own plane and their enemies so that the game can be adjusted based on the players level of play.
- New planes – Along with the 2 original planes, there will be new planes available as DLC which bring all new original attacks. These DLC can be used on all levels allowing players to have a different game play experience.
Psyvariar Delta will launch on August 30th in Japan, with a North American and European release planned.
