Feel like playing an over the top looking side scrolling action game? Then you should be prepared for Moon Diver because coming out of left field with little previous notification is Square Enix’s latest action title that is currently exclusive to the PlayStation Network. Being released today in the U.S. and tomorrow everywhere else Moon Diver will cost $14.99 and is a timed exclusive only so Xbox 360 owners shouldn’t have to wait too long.
Now Moon Diver is set in the year 2081 and the Earth now lies in ruins, but that doesn’t mean all hope is lost. Players take the roll of the Moon Divers, five different characters with unique powers and special moves that are not only bright and colorful but deadly as well. The trailer released alongside the launch announcement certainly has an anime-esque feel to it but also looks to be a unique experience. Also if it seems like the game may appear similar to the classic title Strider, there is a good reason for that as Moon Diver is also created by Koichi Yotsui who had also created Strider.
