Today was the day that Platinum Games was expected to drop the final reveal of the fabled "Platinum4", a quartet of announcements about the Bayonetta developers future plans. Early this morning, Platinum made good on its word, with a new trailer for shmup sequel Sol Cresta.

As showcased in the trailer below, Sol Cresta is the long, long, loooong awaited collaboration between Platinum Games and retro-enthusiasts Hamster Corporation, who have come together to develop and release a brand new sequel to 1980 coin-op Moon Cresta and its 1985 sequel, Terra Cresta.

Specifically renown for their mind-blowing "docking" mechanics, the Cresta titles were a big hit in the arcades and on home computers, and this franchise is finally ready to blast a whole new universe of video game fans into the next generation and beyond.
