Square Enix announces THEXDER NEO is available from today, exclusively for download via PlayStation Network for the newly launched PSPgo system and the PSP, priced £7.99 and €7.99.
Originally released back in 1985 from GAME ARTS and regarded by many as a classic, THEXDER is a side-scrolling shooter featuring slick animation, strategic transforming-mech gameplay, and spectacular homing lasers. Now you can experience the excitement of the original, complete with revamped graphics, a novice mode, six-player online races, and a host of other all-new features in THEXDER NEO.
Larry Sparks, Vice President Brands PAL Region of Square Enix Ltd. comments, “THEXDER NEO is a really enjoyable game and we’re pleased to be able to release it as a downloadable launch title for the PSPgo. THEXDER has been praised as a classic since its Japanese launch in 1985 and THEXDER NEO is the first opportunity for European gamers to get their hands on it.”
