From ININ Games and Raw Fury, the boxed versions of Star Renegades for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 will be released this Friday, August 27, 2021, in North America and Europe.

Created by the masterminds and makers of Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander at dev studio Massive Damage, Star Renegades allows players to control a ragtag rebel squad to fight against the ruthless Imperium. With the tagline, “Resist. Reclaim. Revive. Repeat.”, players are treated to a fast-paced tactical turn-based timeline battle system and procedurally generated dungeons.

Apparantly, the AI opponents your team will handle are merciless. So, you will need to unlock, trade, and upgrade weapons, loot, and gear to save the universe. Coming up with strategies is encouraged if you want your team to have a fighting chance.

The pixel-art style is definitely a highlight of Star Renegades. Do make sure to watch the trailer!

I do like the visual design. The characters look so cute while walking around. The synth-wave compositions are appealing. There’s an overall chaotic vibe to the battles. I’m here for it!

Along with the upcoming retail versions, there are also two premium limited editions that you can currently pre-order exclusively at the Strictly Limited Games Partner Store.

The Limited Edition of this action-packed game comes individually numbered and includes a manual. The NS and PS4 versions will cost you €29.99 EUR each.

The Collector’s Edition comes in a special box that includes a modular diorama, a beautiful artbook, the superior soundtrack, a reversible poster, character cards, and a lot more for collectors to enjoy. This version will cost you €49.99 EUR for the NS and PS4.

As for Massive Damage, an indie Toronto games studio, it was created by mobile app pioneers Ken Seto and Garry Seto back in 2010. Their first game, Please Stay Calm, was released in late 2011 and went to become one of the most successful location-based massively multiplayer games on iOS. The studio was able to raise $187K on Kickstarter for Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander, a space strategy RPG mashup. Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander was released to commercial and critical success in 2016 for Steam, Nintendo Switch, and iOS.

Released in September of 2020, Star Renegades is the studio’s most recent game. It is currently available on Steam, GOG, Microsoft Store, Nintendo Switch, and the PS4. You can get more information by visiting the studio’s official website.
