Tom Create has announced shoot ’em up Starship Avenger: Operation Take Back Earth for Switch and PC. It will launch first for Switch via Nintendo eShop on July 19, followed by PC via Steam on August 9 for 500 yen.
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
In a distant future… When mankind advanced to outer space, the Crius suddenly appeared out of nowhere and began invading humanity. Mankind’s defense network in the solar system was no match for the overwhelming forces of Crius and were quickly defeated…
However, mankind did not lose all hope.
The remaining survivors gathered to the Planet Kagutsuchi located close to the solar system. They researched the Crius and mapped out the ultimate battle plan that would determine humanity’s fate.
The essential factor to this plan is the newly built Space Battleship “Avenger.”
Avenger’s mission is to intercept the enemies that roam in the solar system and deliver mankind’s ultimate weapon “Thor’s Hammer” back to Earth’s orbit.
Thus, “Mission Take Back Earth,” the plan to return to Earth and retaliate against the Crius, is about to begin…
Starship Avenger is a defense shooter action game.
Blast off the weapons installed on Avenger to defeat the enemies who come to destroy mankind’s ultimate weapon! Don’t let them cross the Dead Line or they’ll cause damage to Thor’s Hammer!
