Konami has agreed to publish CYGNI: All Guns Blazing, a lavish-looking top-down twin-stick shooter gunning for PC and consoles.Ð³Ð´Ðµ Ð²Ð·ÑÑ‚ÑŒ Ð² Ð·Ð°Ð¹Ð¼ Ð±ÐµÐ· Ð¿Ñ€Ð¾Ñ†ÐµÐ½Ñ‚Ð¾Ð² Ð½Ð° Ð¼ÐµÑÑÑ†
Developed by Scottish outfit Keelworks Ltd, this vertical affair features local co-op, both air-to-air and air-to-groundÂ combat, the ability to route the shipâ€™s power to offensive or defensive modes, â€œHollywood qualityâ€ CGI, and a full orchestral score.
The developerâ€™s intention is not to reinvent the genre, but rather bring it up to modern standards through polished presentation.
â€œOf all the publishers we spoke to, our communication with KONAMI was different from the start and it stood out among the rest. With a long and wide-ranging history of work on classic shmups, KONAMI immediately recognized the direction in which CYGNI was heading and decided to bet on its potential outcome,â€ said Meher Kalenderian, Founder & CEO at KeelWorks Ltd.
CYGNI: All Guns Blazingâ€™s release date is yet to be announced. Target platforms arenâ€™t clear yet either â€“ thereâ€™s a strong chance it could be next-gen only. Weâ€™ll have to wait and see. In the meantime, the trailer is below:
