Cosmic Star Heroine, the next game from Cthulhu Saves the World developer Zeboyd Games, will launch for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita alongside PC and Mac in 2014, the two-man developer announced during a Sony event at PAX Prime in Seattle tonight.
The game is a retro sci-fi RPG inspired by Chrono Trigger (visual style, on-map battles, combo techniques), Phantasy Star (overall feel of the worlds and characters), and Suikoden (political intrigue, expandable player headquarters), lead designer Robert Boyd said on the PlayStation Blog.
It stars Alyssa L’Salle, a top agent of the galactic government who has saved the galaxy on multiple occasions. But when she discovers a dark conspiracy, her own government outs her as a legendary spy and the people’s champion. Now with hordes of adoring fans at her feet, every organization she’s ever crossed paths with are out for her blood.
Zeboyd will soon launch a Kickstarter to raise funds for the game’s development. PlayStation consumers can back a cross-buy PlayStation 4 and PS Vita tier for $10.
