The brilliant minds of two development teams, Housemarque (Resogun) and Eugene Jarvis (Classic Arcade games like Smash TV & Defenders) announced their latest collaboration title Nex Machina at PSX 2016.
The upcoming PS4 title will be a top down twin stick shooter. The gameplay looks super fast and intuitive giving players that old sense of arcade style gameplay. The newly released trailer, which you can watch below, shows off both its awesome cartoon-like cutscenes and some gameplay from the title; check it out down below:
Mikael Haveri from Housemarque took to the PlayStation Blog to give players a little backstory on what Nex Machina is about, check it out down below:
In a world where humans have become more and more addicted to technology, machines have evolved from simple helpers to replacements for unwanted jobs — conscious entities with their own feelings. Robots surpassed mankind’s abilities, becoming the superior being, and started to refuse to serve us.
After the singularity, the rise of the machines was inevitable — and unstoppable. But nobody even noticed. Mankind’s best and brightest were too busy updating their status on social media. When all seems lost, out of the blue a mysterious hero appears: you. Who sent you? Will you save humanity from itself once again? And last but not least, are your skills sharp enough to confront an army of fiendish robots out for blood?
Nex Machina is set to release in 2017 for PS4.
