4 Corner Games Announces Twin-Stick Shooter Monochrono



4 Corner Games recently revealed their upcoming twin-stick shooter, Monochrono. The game will release sometime in 2017 for Wii U, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita, and will feature time manipulation that the player will use to take out enemies. You can check out the game’s E3 teaser trailer below.


Here’s some additional information on Monochrono from 4 Corner Games:


Monochrono is a twin-stick shooter broken into ten second chunks, with hundreds of independently intelligent enemies on screen and a clear mission. Players can, at any point, hold down a button to slow down time in the world by a factor of three, providing the essential hook of the game: players can strategize, position themselves appropriately, and release the button to hit their enemies. Because the player them self is not slowed down by the mechanic, it provides an essential layer of strategy that the game is built around.


When players play Monochrono upon its 2017 release, they will find themselves presented with many options and gameplay modes, including a fully fleshed out story campaign, an endless survival mode, a challenge mode with a stricter mission structure that sees players attempting to clear a challenge while completing three distinctly designed challenges, a local multiplayer mode, and many more unannounced features, modes, and unlockables.


The announcement of the title is just the beginning. Fans can stay tuned to, as well as follow @4CornerGames and @Monochrono on Twitter to stay in touch about the game’s development, including frequent developer blogs, screenshots, updates, and more. Direct gameplay footage as well as more feature announcements will be coming within the upcoming weeks, and those interested in the title will not want to miss it!


Monochrono will release for the Wii U, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita sometime in 2017.
