About the Game
Enjoy free-form shooting game SOL CRESTA's Arcade Mode and Dramatic Mode together!
Dock, split, and form up! Pilot 3 fighters and take back the sun from the clutches of evil with this SOL CRESTA bundle that offers both the slick and speedy gameplay of the main game's Arcade Mode, and the densely woven story and unique case of Dramatic Mode!
PlatinumGames’ NEO-CLASSIC ARCADE series carries on the spirit and fun of classic gaming using modern technology, and the first project in this endeavor is SOL CRESTA. SOL CRESTA takes the docking and formation strategies of classic shooting games Moon Cresta and Terra Cresta and elevates them with the “free-form docking” system. The flagship Yamato, composed of the fighters Amaterasu, Tsukuyomi, and Susano can utilize various attacks depending on how the three ships are aligned. Docking, splitting, and reforming the ships as needed is the key to defeating the invading armies of Mega Zofer.
Humanity faced a crushing defeat at the hands of the Mandler Army during their last invasion of the solar system. Losing the moon and being driven from Earth, they were forced to retreat all the way to Laomedeia, the 12th moon of Neptune. With the last of their hope, they formed the solar recovery squad SOL CRESTA, and placed the fate of the solar system with the Yamato, a cutting-edge docking ship.
The Yamato is composed of 3 ships. You’ll scramble with one ship at first but pick up the right item and more ships will appear for a powerup! Dock and split to change your attack properties and use different formations to access an amazing arsenal.
Classic '80s-style Excitement
Sol Cresta’s music is provided by legendary chiptune composer Yuzo Koshiro. The game pays homage to the sound and visuals of the earlier Cresta series, bringing back arcade fever while taking it beyond mere nostalgia. There’s even a time limit, high score Caravan Mode, and online leaderboards.
PlatinumGames’ New Challenge
What would happen if PlatinumGames, developers of satisfying and jam-packed action games like Bayonetta, tried their hand at shooting? Sol Cresta is the answer. The visuals are classic, but the originality and depth of the systems and gameplay provide a fresh and deep shooting experience that grows each time you play.

Mugs: Fangamer's custom-made mugs are heavy duty, but if you want them to last a long time you may consider washing them by hand and avoid microwaving.
Patches: Fangamer patches and velcro comes with a temporary adhesive, but they recommend sewing the patch on once you're happy with its placement.
