Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs is coming to PC Engine!!

An all new 16-Bit run'n'gun shoot-em-up based on and licensed from the original 1986 animated space western series!I'm sure many of you have seen the link to the Kickstarter project in regards to the Saber Rider games coming out.  And you probably also knew that because the campaign was funded that it's scheduled to come out for multiple game consoles including the Nintendo handhelds and downloads on STEAM!  But, did you also know that an exclusive version is being created for our very own TURBOGRAFX/PC ENGINE SUPER CD!!!??  DID YOU!?!?

Ok, maybe that's old news too, but it's pretty huge and we're a bit surprised more people aren't talking about it daily!  The game is slated to be released in 2016 and should be similar to the gameplay described in the kickstarter webpage.  It's design is of a 16-bit style run n' gun shooter.  Which in the PCE world is a welcome genre that we could absolutely have more of in our TURBOB diet!  Aetherbyte, developers of Atlantean, Pyramid Plunder and Insanity have been given the reigns to develop the Super CD release and we couldn't be more excited!!

If you haven't backed the project yet, you still have time to order copie(s) for yourself.  You can also find more information on their kickstarter page along with keeping an eye on Aetherbyte Studios for development progress and news and notes!
