A remake of Game Arts’ late 80’s transforming robot shooter is coming to PlayStation Network. PSP owners can pick up Thexder Neo on October 1 worldwide.


Thexder Neo has revised graphics, an easy difficulty setting, and an online mode that supports up to six players. In Japan, the game will cost 1,000 yen ($11).


Pricing for North America and details about a possible PlayStation 3 version, which the ESRB says is in development, were not announced at this time.

    I want this game but I thought PSP Mini’s didn’t have multiplayer?

    • Spencer

      This isn’t a PSP mini. It’s a regular downloadable PSN game.

    Heh, I still remember playing this when Sierra brought it over, eep, decades ago.

      Hehe, yep. I have fond memories of the original Sierra published US release too, along with the original Silpheed. The Thexder sequel was pretty good too!

    Never played the original game, but this does look pretty cool. I’ll have to check it out!
