Pocky & Rocky Spiritual Successor Heavenly Guardian To Release On PS4 On April 4



Heavenly Guardian (also known as Legend of Sayuki in Europe, and Yukinko Daisenpuu in Japan) is set to release on PlayStation 4 on April 4, 2019, Joyful Star announced. This makes it the fourth platform to receive the title, after the original PS2 release, and ports to the Nintendo Switch and most recently, PC via Steam. [Thanks, Gematsu!]


The game was originally developed as a sequel to the Pocky & Rocky series, but spun off into its own game after licensing issues with the IP. As such, the game also is a scrolling shooter where players control characters freely around the map. Main character Sayuki is able to fire different types of shots, as well as freely command icy winds to freeze enemies if she has the power charged up for it.


Check out some gameplay below:


Heavenly Guardian will join PlayStation 4 digitally in Japan on April 4, 2019. The game is currently available via Nintendo Switch, PC, and its original PS2 release.
