Loosen up those thumbs
ACQUIRE Corp. today announced twin-stick shooter game XALADIA: Rise of the Space Pirates X2. Scheduled for release on Switch in fall 2023, XALADIA is the first self-published release from the developers of Tenchu, Way of the Samurai, AKIBA’S TRIP, and the Octopath Traveler series.
“Our new self-publishing unit is filled with the brightest young game development minds in Japan designing under the tutelage of ACQUIRE’s award-winning creative team,” said Takuma Endo, President of ACQUIRE Corp. “XALADIA completely modernizes the classic twin-stick shooter and is just the beginning for our newly formed team. We look forward to revealing more projects very soon.”
XALADIA: Rise of the Space Pirates X2 is a twin-stick, single-player shooter game featuring non-scrolling, single-screen battle, varied turret construction, covered defense and 3D graphics. Players must take on the role of a planetary reconnaissance soldier in a terraformed planet society during a violent and destructive alien space-pirate raid. In short, the soldier who does not cover the screen with a barrage of missiles, lasers, barriers and bots will be destroyed by the enemy! XALADIA’s scalable, customizable weapons system sets it apart from other twin-stick shooters.
