Iconic IP Previously Released in Japan on PC Engine Debuts in the West!

30th April, 2024: Indie publisher Ratalaika Games and Shinyuden are pleased  to announce the forthcoming release of Cyber Citizen Shockman 3: The Princess from Another World, which continues the iconic IP, previously released on PC Engine in Japan but never before seen in the West. It was the first game in the series to be released in CD format, which allowed the development team to include animated cutscenes with voice acting.

Cyber Citizen Shockman 3: The Princess from Another World, launching on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Microsoft Xbox One,  Xbox Series X/S and Nintendo Switch, is a superb retro arcade action feast that captures the excitement and appeal that made it a true genre favourite.

Cyber Citizen Shockman 3: The Princess from Another World was produced by Toshiro Tsuchida, who also worked as a producer in Cyber Citizen Shockman 2: A New Menace, as well as other classics such as Gley Lancer, Langrisser, and Assault Suits Valken. Later he founded G-Craft, a company known for creating the popular Front Mission and Arc the Lad RPG franchises. After Square Enix purchased G-Craft, he would work also on the Final Fantasy series.
