Doublesix Games, the studio behind PlayStation Network’s Burn Zombie Burn!, has made its second title announcement in the past two weeks. Strike Suit Zero, revealed today, is an upcoming arcade space shooter for PlayStation Network and PC.
The game sees a future Earth in its final hours. To save the planet, players will fly and battle in a transforming fighter, known as the “Strike Suit.” The suit provides the player with “ludicrous firepower and awesome abilities,” as you “fight with fury” and “make snap decisions” that could save or destroy the seven billion lives on Earth.
“Strike Suit Zero is inspired by the classic space combat games we all love,” said Doublesix creative director Jim Mummery. “But our game goes further – it takes that inspiration, pumps up the pace and injects a massive sense of urgency to excite and challenge the player.”
Strike Suit Zero boasts “a dazzling art style, high-speed zero gravity vehicular combat, branching-mission structure, ship designs from renowned Mechanical Design engineer Junji Okubo (Appleseed: Ex Machina, Steel Battalion) and music from award-winning sound designer Paul Ruskay (Homeworld).” It will be on display at Gamescom in Cologne, next week.
