Today, two-man developer Zeboyd Games announced via a Kickstarter update that its hotly anticipated sci-fi RPG, Cosmic Star Heroine, will finally launch for PS4 and PC on April 11, 2017 at the price point of $14.99 USD.

The game is also coming to PlayStation Vita, however, this version of the game still needs more time according the developer. Specifically, Zeboyd Games said the following in the same Kickstarter update:

The Vita version will not be coming out on April 11th, but will be released soon after. It was a tough decision to make, but we felt the Vita version needed some extra time to polish up and we didn’t want to delay the other releases further.

For those of you who don’t know, Cosmic Star Heroine has been in development for roughly four years, and is from the creators of Cthulhu Saves the World. It is said to be inspired by the likes of Chrono Trigger, Phantasy Star, and Suikoden. Here’s an official overview, courtesy of the game’s Steam page:
