Earlier this week, Amazon leaked — in the form of a listing — that Raiden V: Director’s Cut was coming to the PS4. Today, UFO Interactive confirmed the listing, announcing not only is it coming to PS4, but PC as well.
UFO Interactive also confirmed that the game will be available at retail (in addition to digitally) — at least on the PS4 — in a package that includes the original soundtrack CD. However, it has not been confirmed that the game will launch on August 22nd, which is the release date in the Amazon listing.
As you may know, Raiden V originally launched for Xbox One on May 2016. Here’s an official overview of it:
Join the war for Earth’s future, where the tide of battle holds constant surprises, in this game that’s easy to learn, but difficult to master. Using Xbox One cloud functionality to its fullest, now all players can easily access their data, allowing you and your comrades-in-arms to enter the fray side-by-side!
Your in-game choices take you down various branching story paths! With the unique “Cheer System,” your online friends can support you on the battlefield in real-time with the push of a button! With tons of content, a variety of weapons, and a revolutionary new combat system, this is Raiden on a scale you’ve never seen before!
A price-point is still unknown, but the game costs $29.99 USD on Xbox One, so expect a price around the same ballpark, or maybe a bit more because it’s a “director’s cut.”
A new trailer accompanied the announcement: you can check it out below:
