'Fission Superstar X' (ALL) Gets Delayed Until Later This Spring - Trailer

Fission Superstar X is a space ship rogue-lite in which it is your mission to deliver a "superstar" nuclear bomb to Earth while fighting off everyone who tries to stop you.

Experience a weird, relentless solar tour in this randomly generated space rogue-lite. Travel from Planet X to Earth while fending off endless waves of attackers. What is the payload? A "superstar" nuclear bomb. What is the mission? To make her famous! Does it makes sense? Ask the "scientist" who built that thing!

While working on his latest nuclear bomb, Dr. Leopold had a revelation. He wasn't creating a weapon of mass destruction; he was creating a nuclear superstar! Was it the radiation sickness or was Leopold always insane like this? Who knows and who cares? Now you must do his bidding and tour the solar system with Celine, his dear bomb. Who would not be thrilled to host the concert of a nuclear bomb under the control of a clearly insane scientist? Everybody it seems, that's why they are all trying to destroy Leopold's creation.

Fission Superstar X takes place in a wacky version of the solar system, featuring nine unlockable ships, over 100 different crew members from humans to space bears, 64 different weapons both mundane and insane, over 20 different environments, and over 70 different enemy types including scavengers, fascist space cats, and giant insects. You'll fight your way through over 20 different environments and face off against giant bosses on your journey through the solar system.  

Fight using ranged and up-close weaponry while dodging and blocking attacks with your shield. Manage your ship to assemble the perfect crew and install the most destructive weapons, but be prepared to make some difficult decisions along the way – do you repair a damaged component, heal a wounded member of the crew, or upgrade your stats? Do you dock at a station and spend time dodging an angry Planetoid or skip that stop for an easier run through a colorful space aurora? It's up to you to decide the best course of action! When a giant insect shrimp gives you a beating on Saturn, just hit the detonate button and blow up your nuclear superstar – that will show them!

You will die a lot in Fission Superstar X, and that will only make your eventual victory taste that much sweeter!

Originally planned for release in January 2019, Fission Superstar X is now set to launch in Spring 2019 for $14.99 on Xbox One and PC (Steam).

The adjustment in release window from its original January date is to allow the developer the time required to offer a more polished product.
