Released in 2021, as confirmed by the trailer that you find below, Sol Cresta is the "bonus stage" of the famous Platinum4 of the Japanese team.

Platinum's Sol Cresta Is Not An April Fools Joke

Platinumgames has released a new trailer for Sol Cresta, which the studio had announced back in 2020. Sol Cresta is the third game in the Cresta series of shoot ‘em ups. Platinum is developing the game in collaboration with Hamster, who currently holds the Terra Cresta IP.

Going by the trailer, Sol Cresta will follow in its predecessors’ footsteps. It appears to be a shoot ‘em up with a style heavily inspired by retro graphics. The trailer implies that Sol Cresta will be the first in the Neo-Classic Arcade Series.

Sol Cresta was announced during Platinum’s Platinum 4 campaign, where the studio was slowly revealing its projects. Sol Cresta was the fourth game announced during the campaign, and owing to its announcement date of April 1, 2020, many assumed that it was an April Fools joke.

Platinum is currently working on a number of games for major companies, including Bayonetta 3 for Nintendo, and Babylon’s Fall for Square Enix. Babylon’s Fall was revealed during E3 2018, and appeared in December 2019’s PlayStation State of Play.

Sol Cresta doesn’t yet have a release date, but the trailer has revealed that it will be making its way to PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC.
