Strictly Limited Games is pleased to announce that in partnership with Qute Corporation, pre-orders for Eschatos goes live Sunday 21st May for PS4/ Nintendo Switch. This is for the exclusive and highly limited boxed editions which is scheduled to be released Autumn / Fall 2023.

 

Eschatos is a beloved polygonal vertical shoot ’em up by Qute Corporation. Initially released exclusively on the Xbox 360 in Japan, the game has since gained a cult following.

In Eschatos aliens have taken over the moon and now threaten to do the same to earth. It’s your job to prevent that from happening. To do that your ship is equipped with three different functions, with each being suited for different situations.

The Front Shot shoots a powerful beam in a straight line, the Wide Shot shoots at an angle and the Shield absorbs shots and damages enemies, but works on a limited energy meter. Using them to adapt to each situation is key.

Not only is the gameplay excellent, the clean graphic style is very pleasing visually and allows the game to transition from one stage to the next without any breaks or even load times in this version! These transitions are accompanied by awesome dynamic camera angles, really showing off the colorful stage backgrounds and creatively bizarre enemy designs.

Shoot ‘Em Up Fans and Collectors can get even more excited as Eschatos is accompanied by its two spiritual predecessors and Qute’s first releases, Judgement Silversword and Cardinal Sins. Both were released in 2004 for the WonderSwan Color and are among the finest looking and playing games of the handheld, both featuring creative scoring mechanics. It’s also fun trying to spot the elements that would later be used as a basis and be built upon by Eschatos, be it gameplay elements or enemy designs. A must have for all WonderSwan fans.

Features:

  • Three games in one package: Eschatos, Judgement Silversword and Cardinal Sins
  • Exclusive to the Switch and PS4 versions of Eschatos: Improved load times, remastered soundtrack and performance improvements
  • Original, Advanced and Time Attack Mode
  • Three types of weapons: Front Shot, Wide Shot and Shield
  • Dynamic camera system, creating a sense of exhilarating speed
  • Five beautiful stages, including temple ruins, Earth’s orbit, and the alien moon base
  • Massive bosses, battle screen-filling UFOs and other strange enemies
  • Online leaderboards and downloadable replay system
  • Phenomenal retro-synth soundtrack composed by Yousuke Yasui

 

Eschatos will be available for pre-order from Sunday 21st May on PS4 / Nintendo Switch and is available by going to the Strictly Limited Games store.
