We reported last year that Luftrausers would be coming to the PS3, Vita, PC, Mac and Linux sometime this spring. It has since been confirmed the game will be available on March 18, 2014. You can pre-order the game on Steam for $8.99. Our very own Josh Speer had a chance to play the game at PAX this year. He was digging the music, and retro art style. Though he found it insanely difficult, there were a lot of control options and he thinks Luftrausers could be a “very compelling game” for shmup fans.

About the Game: (from Devolver Digital)

Select from over 125 combinations of weapons, bodies, and propulsion systems and take to the sky to battle enemy fighter planes, battleships, submarines, and rival aces for total airspace domination.
