Moon Diver Now Available On PSN

by on March 30, 2011

Square Enix have announced today that the highly anticipated digital release of Moon Diver is now available to purchase on the PlayStation Network. This fast paced action side-scroller can be yours for the meagre sum of £9.99.

Developed for both the PlayStation Network and for Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, Moon Diver delivers frenetically fast-paced gameplay and a classic side-scrolling perspective for up to four players locally or via online cooperative play. Pricing and availability for the Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360 will be announced at a later date.

Developed by feelplus inc., Moon Diver was created by Koichi Yotsui, the visionary game designer behind one of the most iconic arcade action games of the last two decades, Strider®. While Moon Diver certainly pays homage to its side-scrolling ancestor with hordes of enemies and gigantic bosses, the game innovates in a number of ways, including entirely modern three-dimensional graphics; a dynamic and intuitive character experience and levelling system; four-player local and online co-op with the ability to instantly drop in and out.

Moon Diver also features a number of unique, selectable, upgradeable and cooperatively combinable character special abilities called “MoonSault Combinations”, which can dramatically alter the field of play at any moment – from powerful area-of-effect attacks to critical passive power boosts to simple, yet effective, invisibility.

So if you are interested in Moon Diver and own a PlayStation 3, go and buy it now! However if you’re waiting to play this title on Xbox LIVE Arcade then unfortunately you will have to wait. But don’t feel down as some screenshots from the game, as well as a nice piece of art involving the characters are below for your viewing pleasure!
