A physical release of the PlayStation 4 version will include a deluxe double-sided poster featuring artwork from the Japanese release as well as original art from the classic 16-bit release, which is also known as Target Earth.
Assault Suit Leynos promises to stay true to the gameplay elements that made the classic 16-bit series popular, including its “fierce and fast shooting action, challenging boss battles, and an amazing array of weapon options.”
Here’s the rundown, via Rising Star:
As Earth reels from the impact of a fourth world war and dwindling resources, an uneasy truce between nations sees mankind reach for the stars. Colonies are settled, resources are mined, and the future starts looking a little brighter. But just as peace finally seems possible, an unknown enemy emerges from the deepest region of space to threaten the very existence of humanity. Only one thing can stop them – It’s time to deploy the Assault Suit Squadron! Gamers will blast through the opposing enemy forces with devastating weapons like machine guns, rocket launchers, and laser beams while discovering the hidden truth behind the invaders.
