Sorcer Striker is a fantasy- and steampunk-themed shoot ’em up developed by Eighting that first launched for arcades in 1993. The M2 ShotTriggers re-release will launch for PlayStation 4 in Japan this fall.
Here are the details:
A 24-Year-Old Revival
Raizing / Eighting’s maiden work makes its first appearance on console. It left arcade shooter fans in awe with its unique setting that combines fantasy and steampunk, pitting mechs against monsters, and a dynamically told story through stage performances and precisely detailed movements of pixel characters big and small.
New Feature: “M2 Gadget”
The “M2 Gadget” is a new feature in the M2 ShotTriggers release of Sorcer Striker that supports players by displaying information about the game content on the left and right sides of the screen, including the enemy’s health, boss battle timer, and a real-time rank graph. For now, screenshots of the right side of the screen are pixelated. What could it be?
M2 also announced the start of a contest for Sorcer Striker seeking fan art for the M2 ShotTriggers official Twitter account and official website. The better art pieces will also appear in Sorcer Striker‘s in-game gallery. Prizes include cards signed by the developers of the arcade version, signed promotional posters, and more. You can e-mail your submission to [email protected] (include a name and mailing address, and title your artwork, which should be a JPG, PNG, or GIF under 5MB), or you can tweet it (include your name, artwork title, and the hashtag “#M2STG魔法”).
