PlatinumGames flashy shmup Sun Crest has been officially delayed to an unknown future date and will no longer meet the originally announced release window in December 2021. Director Hideki Kamiya announced the delay at a “Very Sorry” livestream presentation held last night.

Sun Crest, the sequel to the 1980s arcade classics Moon Crest and Terra Cresta, began life as just an April Fool’s joke back in the spring of 2020. Following fans’ appreciation of the title’s potential, the vertically rolling shmup sequel was finally confirmed as an official, upcoming PlatinumGames release – where the studio had released several flashy trailers of old- the school / now-school title in action in recent months.

The new sequel will see the mighty Yamato spacecraft take to the skies again and fight the forces of the Mega Zohar while procedurally devouring entire areas of the galaxy. With humanity currently hidden away on the planet Neptune, and the threat to galactic civilization threatened, it will be the duty of the Yamato and its pilot to make one last attack on the Mega Zohar forces, so as not to wipe out humanity’s last flicker as A Light .

We will make sure to notify you when the new release date is announced. The title already looks very cool and should definitely prove to be worth the wait. Sun Crest is currently under development for PS4, PC and Nintendo Switch.
