gleylancer xbox

First released on the SEGA Mega Drive way back in 1992, it’s time for the iconic Gleylancer to be revived for modern consoles – with launch on Xbox, PlayStation and Switch. Oh, and it’s fully optimised for the next-gen too. 

Available to purchase and download right now, Greylancer takes what was loved back in the early 1990s and thrusts it forth onto our consoles of today. It’s all thanks to the Ratalaika Games team who have published this on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and Nintendo Switch. If you’re one of those who have made the jump to the Gen-9 consoles like Series X|S, you’ll find it fully optimised too. 

Priced at £5.99 with a little launch discount initially dropping that down to £4.79, Gleylancer is an outer space themed shoot ’em up in which we join the life of a heroine pilot, all as they go out in search of hostile aliens, shooting them down once found. 

Running the route of multiple weapons and power-ups, Gleylancer will bring plenty of options to the SHMUP fan, with various formations and customisation options being stuck to your ship. When you include the fact that this comes with the modern control scheme you would expect, along with improved modes and accessibility features, Gleylancer could well be of interest. 

The key features of this one include:

  • * Improved modes available with accessibility features and modern controls
  • * Classic and deep space shoot ‘em up gameplay
  • * Epic space opera with anime cut scenes
  • * Customize the ship’s attacking power
  • * Iconic retro console graphics and sound
  • * Legacy 16-bit title from the 1990s!

Ready and willing to get involved in a new shoot ’em up? Gleylancer is available from your favourite digital store right now, with the Xbox Store holding the key for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S players. Expect to find it on PlayStation and Switch too.
