Strap on your nostaglia shoes, we're going for a ride! Dracue Software have remade the 1990 Mega Drive game Assault Suit Leynos (released as Target Earth in the US), a horizontal-scrolling shooter and platforming classic, for the PlayStation 4. Currently the release has only been confirmed for Japan.
Besides updating the game for PS4 compatability Dracue has seriously improved the game' graphics, feel of the controls, and overall presentation - bringing them all up to that of 2015 standards.
The latest Assault Suit Leynos trailer briefly outlines the game's backstory for those unfamiliar:
It began when Earth’s outcasts returned in great warships from the darkest reaches of space.
They attacked the planet and all her galactic outposts with lightning fury.
The Earth Defense League fought for Earth’s survival with warriors outfitted in gigantic cyborg battle armor.
The battle began on Ganymede…
Assault Suit Leynos will also include Arcade Mode, Classic Mode (similar to the Mega Drive version), and Challenge Mode (featuring both the Arcade and Classic Mode stages).

this is the big one, the western release is for $20 and this will only get more expensive, amazing game that takes u back to genesis and super nintendo days.
If you liked games like cybernator, metal warriors on the supernes, you'll love this game.
This game is lots of fun and has the old school retro look and feel from the 16 bit era but in HD graphics of course. Would highly recommend.
Excellent service from Play-Asia.com, will be ordering again.
Very fun game, just wish there was a Vita version!
This game is awesome. There should be more games like this on ps4. Deacue has done a wonderful job.
