Game Arts, developers of the classic RPG, Lunar, once cooked up a robot shooter game back in the day. Some of our veteran readers out there may be familiar with it, but for the rest who never got to play the game, Square Enix may be reviving this old game and giving it a fresh PS3, PSP look so that gamers of the new age can enjoy an old classic.
Info comes by way of an ESRB Rating, where the rating board has given its take on the title. This new game, Thexder NEO, has been rated E for Everyone and is heading for the PS3 and PSP thanks to Square Enix. This would possibly be a PSN release.
This is a side-scrolling action game in which players control a transforming robot through a series of maze-like levels. Players must destroy enemy robots along the way by shooting them with laser beams. Most enemies react to damage by disappearing in a colorful burst; boss battles depict more protracted combat with louder and more realistic explosions.
Sierra Entertainment, on the other hand, will be releasing Thexder, possibly a remake, for the PC with a Teen rating.
