Will you be the SOL survivor?
PlatinumGames released SOL CRESTA on the Switch back in February 2022, but it seems like they’re hoping more people will hop on the Switch eShop and give the game a go. That’s why they’ve put out a new demo for the title, and it’s available to download right now!
The demo, dubbed SOL CRESTA Trial Version, includes a sampling of a couple modes. Here’s what you can expect to try out when you download the demo.
- Arcade Mode: Playable until part-way through Stage 1 final boss
- Dramatic Mode: Playable until Stage 1 middle boss
PlatinumGames’ NEO-CLASSIC ARCADE series carries on the spirit and fun of classic gaming using modern technology, and the first project in this endeavor is SOL CRESTA. SOL CRESTA takes the docking and formation strategies of classic shooting games Moon Cresta and Terra Cresta and elevates them with the “free-form docking” system. The flagship Yamato, composed of the fighters Amaterasu, Tsukuyomi, and Susano can utilize various attacks depending on how the three ships are aligned. Docking, splitting, and reforming the ships as needed is the key to defeating the invading armies of Mega Zofer.
