“Habroxia 2” Coming to Steam PC, Consoles in February
Publisher Eastasiasoft and developer Lillymo Games have announced that retro-inspired shoot ’em up Habroxia 2 will be coming 3 February to PC and consoles.
Despite its old school aesthetics, Habroxia 2 mixes up the formula by adding both vertical and side-scrolling stages, non-linear progression, and twin-stick aiming controls. There’s also options to upgrade and customize your ship and a New Game+ mode.
Eastasiasoft will be publishing Habroxia 2 digitally on PS4, PlayStation Vita, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and Steam PC. It’s also worth noting that the original Habroxia is now available on Xbox One.
If you’re not into digital downloads, there’s also plans for a physical, “Limited Edition” of Habroxia 2 coming to PS4 and PlayStation Vita via Playasia. This Limited Edition includes the game, manual, a soundtrack CD, a numbered certificate and a collector’s box. You can preorder your copy at PlayAsia for $34.99 here.
You can watch the announcement trailer below, followed by the official breakdown of Habroxia 2 from the game’s Steam page.
In the aftermath of a brutal attack on Free Space, humanity sends scout ships to the star system that was at the source of the assault. But when one of the pilots doesn’t return home, it’s up to his daughter — the talented starpilot Sabrina — to find him. Habroxia 2 is a non-linear, old-school space shooter with upgrades, boss fights, and even New Game+, all wrapped in a retro package combining pixel graphics, chiptunes, and stellar gameplay.
