PS3’s Soldner-X 2: 1080p 2D Shooter Release Confirmed

By Alan Ng - Apr 15, 2010

We have some good news for fans of ‘R-Type’ style retro shooters, as we can confirm that 2D shooter Soldner-X2: Final Prototype is heading to the PS3 sometime in May.

As reported from Eurogamer, X2 is the sequel game to the 2008 game titled Soldner-X: Himmelssturmer. For those of you who played the first game, you’ll be pleased to know that X2 features 1080p graphics, online rankings and a new chaining and fourfold chaser system.

We’ve seen the trailer and it certainly looks good. This may not appeal to everyone, but if you like your old school shooters like a lot of gamers do, then Soldner-X 2 is looking pretty good.

We’ll let you know once we have pricing and a solid release date for you. Give us your impressions of the game, there is a trailer up at Eurogamer.
