Original Story: Independent developer Tiki Games has announced Novastrike, a downloadable top-down shooter for the PlayStation 3. Targeted for release via the online PlayStation Store between April and June of this year, the title has players repelling an invasion from the villainous Draelus.
The shooter will ship with seven objective-based stages, with the studio noting that "there aren't any rails here, so players can fly in any direction." Nine weapons will be available in the initial release, each with three levels of upgrades.
Following the game's debut, the company plans to support the Novastrike with additional content. No specifics or pricing details were mentioned, though the expansions will most likely be sold separately and pack new stages, enemies and weapons.

I remember playing this on my old 486 and thinking how awesome the bosses were. =) Hopefully they keep the spirit the same, but it'll be great to get off those rails the game use to run on and fire at enemies in any direction. Personally looking forward to this one.
