UK game developer doublesix, creator of All Zombies Must Die! has just announced the new deep space arcade/shooting action game Strike Suit Zero. Strike Suit Zero taps into the “widescreen space opera” that has redefined sci-fi over the last decade while adding a killer missing ingredient: transforming fighters. SSZ features futuristic craft born from the mind of renowned Mechanical Design engineer Junji Okubo (Appleseed: Ex Machina, Steel Battalion), including gigantic capital ships, sleek alien craft and deadly “Strike Suits” that transform between fighter and robotic warrior at the touch of a button. As you can see, Strike Suit Zero captures everything you’re looking for in space-born combat, with the addition of being able to turn into a giant robot at will to cause even further mayhem. This is not Gundam, I repeat not Gundam, how its different, we don’t know yet :)
Strike Suit Zero is planned for a digital release on PC and game consoles in the first quarter of 2012.
