Soldner-X 2 coming to PSN in May

Things are looking shmup.

The PlayStation Network will be graced with a 2D horizontal shoot-'em-up in the classic style next month, with the arrival of Soldner-X 2: Final Prototype.

Check out the trailer and PlayStation blog post for more details.

The sequel to 2008's wonderfully-titled Soldner-X: Himmelssturmer, Final Prototype involves shooting lots of aliens called D'aarg across seven stages of "nothing but pure action with hundreds of enemies to shoot down, thousands of bullets to evade and huge boss battles to be fought," according to co-producer Tet from eastasiasoft.

"Up to" 1080p graphics, a new chaining system, a fourfold chaser system, online ranking and replay sharing all feature. It's out in May.
