Moon Diver (previously known as Necromachina) is the latest project by Kouichi Yotsui, whose previous works include Strider and Cannon Fodder. The game was announced at E3 2010 before being pretty much forgotten by everyone who had interest in it due to delay after delay after delay. Well, good news! Square Enix confirmed today that the game would be released on PSN March 29th, with an XBLA release followed afterwards (normally it’s the other way round).
The game itself is remisicent of Capcom’s Strider (surprise, surprise) which will focus on providing a fun, yet difficult experience to gamers of all creeds. In an bizzare interview where Yotsui was interviewed by THE MAIN CHARACTER FROM HIS OWN GAME!, Yotsui said: “I want everyone to invite their friends and just have fun with the co-op mode. But the single-player mode is serious business. I have no intention of letting anyone escape with their lives. It’s a good game to die!!!”. Nice to see more people taking a leaf out of the Hard Corps: Uprising way of thinking.
