Astebreed is a dynamically changing shmup by the very talented Japanese indie team at Edelweiss, and it’s going to be available for Western audiences for the first time very soon. This is only possible thanks to the folks at Playism, because now Astebreed will be available in English this month, on May 23rd.
Featured above, you’ll get the first look at all of the systems that make up the chaotic and gorgeous experience that is Astebreed. In the game you step into the boots of Roy Becket, a pilot with crazy potential, who has taken control of the eponymous mecha dubbed Astebreed.
Utilizing deadly alien technology, you’re humanity’s last hope in the brutal fight to save the planet. The game is described as a mix of tight, responsive action and mind boggling visuals – and if you watched the video by now you’ll probably be nodding your head in agreement.
