Stardust Vanguards has been out on Steam/PC for a little over a year and getting positive reviews, so much so that the community wanted a console version of the game.
Two to four players battle in an arcade action based game where player’s are rewarded for precision dodging and skillful attacking as you weave in and out of a barrage of bullets and enemies. In Stardust Vanguards it takes only one hit to send your player six feet under, so every move needs to be calculated. Each giant robot that is controlled by the player is quipped with an energy sword and an machine gun that has limited ammo. The key game mechanic is call reinforcement points (RP) which players can use to summon allied NPC squadrons to support you in battle. For every second you stay alive you will earn RP, and the battles will progress into bigger and badder battles.
