I love me some old school shmup action, which is why I previously enjoyed playing Eclipse Games’ Tachyon Project so much. While it was a challenging, rollicking rollercoaster of a game on Steam, the good news today from Eastasiasoft is that it’s coming to PS4 and Vita in a limited physical edition! At least in Asia, it is. The good news is that you can order a copy of the Tachyon Project LE on Play-Asia today. They are making something like 2,000 copies of the game, and each comes equipped with a bunch of great goodies as well as trophy support. To see the full details, read Eclipse Games’ official press release below!

About Tachyon Project
Tachyon Project is a dual stick shooter heavily inspired by classic shoot’em ups. A combination of a large variety of weapons, many unique enemy types, power-ups and innovative gameplay ensures a long-lasting challenge with new discoveries at every level.
In Tachyon Project you will take control of Ada, a software program that was designed to hack into the most secure servers on Earth, but has also attained consciousness. After some rather mysterious events, Ada is thrown out from the test server where she was living and out into the internet. However, Ada soon discovers she is unable to return to the test server. She’ll then start a journey to uncover the truth behind what happened to her creators, whom she considers her parents. In the process, she’ll find out that things were a bit more complex than she initially thought.
