Kero Blaster - Formerly Gero Blaster | oprainfall

Remember Gero Blaster? Fans of Studio Pixel know the name and have been waiting for more information since last year. There have been months of radio silence, beyond Pixel tweeting out a screenshot or two. Recently, there was finally a buzz. And now there’s much more than that.

What you’re looking at is the first English trailer for Kero Blaster. Same game, different first letter. It’s coming to the west courtesy of Playism. Turns out the “buzz” heard not too long ago that revealed who was publishing Kero Blaster was, in fact, a leaked trailer. Kero Blaster and Playism will be at the Indie Megabooth @ PAX East 2014. If you’re not attending PAX East; don’t worry. The game will be released for PC and iOS on May 11th, 2014.

Don’t know who Playism is? Beyond LA-MULANA2, they’ve also helped to localize To the Moon, Dear Esther and more. Here’s a bit from their message to backers of LA-MULANA2:

“Not only are we going to be showing off La-Mulana 2, we’re also going to be exhibiting Astebreed by Edelweiss, and Kero Blaster by Cave Story creator Studio Pixel. It’s a really exciting event for us, as it will be the first western event for Playism. Imagine that!

Myself and Josh from Playism will be manning the booth, and we’re bringing a few of the developers with us, including La-Mulana 2 director Takumi Naramura!”

Anyone on the staff, and probably many of you reading this, can probably imagine how excited I am. While Pixel’s next game isn’t here yet—it’s just around the corner. It’ll go for $4.99 on iOS and $7.99 on PC.
