There will be a physical version available, too...

Fast Striker is headed next to PlayStation 4 and Vita, publisher eastasiasoft announced today. The game, developed by NGDEV, is a vertical shooter of the bullet hell variety.

Originally released on Neo*Geo in Japan in 2010, and later brought to Dreamcast (also only in Japan) during that same year, Fast Striker has been making the rounds for quite some time now. In North America and Europe, it has only been available for iOS devices, but on October 16 that will change when it arrives on both PlayStation 4 and Vita.

Fast Striker is a single-player game that presents players with six "sizzling" stages of "retina-scorching" action. There are "unforgettable" boss encounters and more than 40 enemy types. All of this plays out at a "gorgeous" 60 frames per second.

"We're thrilled to bring our unique twist on the classic vertical shoot 'em up to PlayStation 4 and PS Vita owners," said René Hellwig, Game Designer at NGDEV. "Fast Striker will test the hand-eye coordination of even the most experienced arcade players."

You'll be able to buy the game for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita (with cross-play support) for $6.99/€6.99 on the appointed day. If you're the type who prefers physical editions, one will be available from Play-Asia for $34.99 USD. It comes with a region-free physical copy of the game itself, a full-color printed manual, an original soundtrack CD, an individually numbered collector's certificate and a collectible box with an embossed logo. I... kind of want it.

If you're interested in the physical edition, you'll potentially want to act quickly to avoid missing out on the opportunity to own it. The game goes on sale starting October 11, 2018.
