Limited Run Games is to publish physical copies of Ray Gigant for the PlayStation Vita on April 14, with approval of the game’s publisher Acttil.
Ray Gigant was released digitally on the PlayStation Vita in May, 2016, so if you wish to own a physical copy, Limited Run Games will be your only chance. Games sold by Limited Run tend to be rather numbered, so it’s definitely a first-come, first serve-basis, otherwise you may eventually end up paying extra from a scalper.
Here’s some information on the game:
Players will meet three heroic characters who each live by their own ideals but share a common goal — to save the world. Each of the heroes — Ichiya, Kyle, and Nil — have their own allies to help them as they embark on a battle against the mysterious alien invaders, the Gigants! Ray Gigant will reveal each of their stories through their own arcs, which will all seamlessly converge as the game progresses. Now, it’s time for PlayStation®Vita owners to rise up with the power of the Yorigami to save the world.
Our adventure takes place in the not-too-distant future… Earth’s major cities have been ravaged by giant, terrifying creatures known as Gigants. Across the globe, military forces from every nation have attempted to counter the attacks but, to their horror, they have all failed miserably.
In a twist of fate, it was reported that a boy named Ichiya Amakaze managed to defeat a Gigant, by using a mysterious power called the Yorigami. This victory was short-lived, however, when Ichiya lost control of his power and tragically destroyed the city he tried so hard to protect. After this fateful experience, he fell unconscious. Ichiya was then detained and sent to a safe location where his fate would soon unfold…
What are Gigants?
Gigants are mysterious, alien life-forms that have invaded Earth. Gigants of various shapes and sizes have been discovered, and they generally take on the form of beasts from legend. However, unlike those mythical beasts, Gigants do not harbor a brilliant, celestial aura. Whatever aura they do possess is something much more vile…
