The PlayStation 4 version of vertical scrolling shoot ’em up Rym 9000 will launch via the PlayStation Store on February 8 in Japan and Asia, and February 15 in North America and Europe, publisher Rainbite and developer Sonoshee announced. A limited run physical edition distributed by Eastasiasoft is available exclusively at Play-Asia for $34.99.
Here is an overview of the game, via Eastasiasoft:
Rym 9000 is a vertical shoot’em up in which you fight your way through 5 levels of concentrated action to reach the Moon and find the Rym 9000 treasure; a legendary relic left by an ancient civilization, buried in the Moon for a generation of pilots to find and “turn the world upside down.”
With an emphasis on haywire motion and experimental visuals from Sonoshee, along with a cyber-stellar soundtrack from Roex, Rym 9000 will take you on a chaotic trip of challenging but fair hyperkinetic fun.
Achievements are set in place for the player to unlock World Log entries and know more about the world they’re venturing into, as well as understanding the history behind the treasure that the protagonist and millions of other pilots are setting out to find.
Fight your way through relentless hordes of enemies, defeat each area’s boss all the way up to the Moon’s guardian “Diesel”, and register your score upon beating the game on a leaderboard that records the top 10 players in the world.
The PlayStation 4 version features several improvements, including performance updates, online leaderboards and Tate mode support.
