Sexy PC shoot ’em up Soldner-X hits PSN next month

It was a year ago this month that I first laid eyes on Söldner-X: Himmelsstürmer, a beautiful shoot ’em up with multiple levels of parallax scrolling and eye-popping graphics. It was being shown to me via a laptop PC at a Microsoft party in Tokyo, where I probably already had a bit too much to drink. I gave it a spin and died quickly due to mild drunkenness, but I was impressed with the title, and said right away that the PC game would be right at home on the PSN or XBLA.

Today eastasiasoft announces that the lovely shooter is coming the North American PlayStation Network in October. It will contain features not originally available in the 2007 PC release, including new graphics and audio. Oh, and Trophies.

New hotness:

  • Visual improvements including y-scrolling, new background animations, newly added effects and more
  • Contains new enemies, including newly crafted standard foes and larger sub boss battles
  • Additional boss battle and berserker mode background music (seven brand new tracks in total!)
  • New sound effects added for an enhanced gaming experience
  • Rebalanced game play with an easier default difficulty
  • Rebalanced high score system, including new victory screens
  • DUALSHOCK®3 / SIXAXIS / Trophies support

The press release also states that other territories outside North America should hear their release dates soon.

Be sure to check out the gallery of new screenshots below.

Does Söldner-X: Himmelsstürmer look like something you’d dig?
