Super Hydorah | Boom

Do you like SHMUPS? A fan of Abylight Studios? Itching for a physical edition? If the answer to all three is a resounding yes, then today is a great day for you. Super Hydorah, the action packed SHMUP from Locomalito and Gryzor87 is getting a physical version courtesy of the fine folks at Limited Run. This Collector’s Edition will produce 3,000 units for PS4, and will include a instruction booklet, music CD, poster and more! The Collector’s Edition is slated to sell for $39.99, which is a pretty fair price for a PS4 game. Though you can get if for cheaper by shelling out $24.99 for the Standard Edition, which is a little less packed. My only real complaint is Super Hydorah isn’t getting the same treatment for Vita, as unlikely as that is. Still, this presents a great opportunity for fans of physical edition swag. Read the full details in the press release below.
