Out This Week: Thexder Neo
Square-Enix will be releasing the HD version of Thexder Neo this week on the PlayStation Network.
Thexder was an action shooter released in 1985 for the PC.
With smooth animation and high-speed scrolling, strategic transformations between walking and flying forms, and spectacularly beautiful homing lasers, Thexder Neo recreates the excitement of the original with all-new graphics and new modes, including an easy mode and an online battle mode for up to six players.
The goal of the game is to destroy the magnetic field emitter deep in the heart of Nedium. Proceeding through the labyrinthine interior of Nedium to reach set goals enables players to clear each stage and move on to the next.
Original elements in this version include the addition of boss characters that have to be taken down in order to reach the next stage.
The PlayStation 3 version not only completely updates the graphics for HD but also includes the original Thexder as released for the PC-8801 mk II SR in 1985. Rediscover everything you enjoyed about the original!
It will cost $9.99, and for that price you get this and the original Thexder. Quite the steal! If you aren’t sure about it, just check out the demo that will be released along side the full game.
