Mecha Shooter Assault Suits Leynos (a.k.a. Target Earth On Genesis) Bound For PS4

By Spencer . March 9, 2014 . 11:08pm

Assault Suits Leynos brings back memories to the Sega Genesis. Released as Target Earth in North America, this game was a run and gun shooter kind of like Contra with a mech.



During BitSummit, a new Assault Suit Leynos was announced for PlayStation 4. Dracue, the developer of Gunhound EX, Thunder Force composer Tsukumo Hyakutaro, and Armored Trooper Votoms artist Toro Yoshida are making the upcoming game. While the new game was announced, Assault Suit Leynos for PlayStation 4 doesn’t have a release window.

    Given what “middleware” has become in the shadow of AAA/3D production, think I’ll wait until an actual trailer with gameplay to get excited for this.

    Though I would very much like to get excited about this.

  • I would like a port to Vita as well to make a good company with my Gunhound and Wolf Fang

    played Leynos 2 on Saturn and that game is a blast despite abit too hard

  • pimpalicious

    I won’t get excited for this yet until I see some gameplay at least, but hopefully it will be awesome.

    I remember thinking how great it was b/c you blast the hell out of infantry and little ship crewmen from your mecha….

  • Looks like a fancy zaku

  • Neophoton

    Will patiently wait on a gameplay trailer before I generate actual interest.

    Please get a physical release. I don’t want to go through the pain of buying japanese PSN games digitally again.

  • TrevHead

    Cool news. I’d also love the PC original of Gunhound to make it to steam / GOG
