This Is What Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs Looked Like A Year Ago


Firebrand are still working on their Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs game, and it looks like it’s been making some progress. When we last saw the game, Firebrand had only released a couple of screenshots and an animated storyboard concept. This week, they showed off a pre-alpha build of the game from E3 2011:



That looks a little reminiscent of Sin & Punishment, doesn’t it? That’s becase Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs is going to be a rail-shooter. Firebrand are also using the original anime series’ voice cast, and the soundtrack will be based on the anime series as well.


What’s most interesting is that this game has been in development for a while. It started out on the GBA, then moved to Nintendo DS. Now, it’s slated for 3DS, Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, iOS, Android, Wii, Wii U and Vita.
