'Sigma Star Saga' Is A Classic Shoot-'em-up/RPG Coming to PC And Consoles In 2025

Originally released in 2005, Sigma Star Saga is a sci-fi adventure that combines elements of 2D space shooters and RPGs.

In the year 2005, WayForward took gamers across the galaxy to discover new worlds and alien species. Twenty years later, it's time to go back!

Featuring a unique mix of top-down planetary exploration and side-scrolling shoot-'em-up space battles, Sigma Star Saga casts players as Allied Earth Federation pilot Ian Recker, who infiltrates the alien Krill Empire as a double agent in a last-ditch effort to save mankind from their onslaught. To do so, Recker must work with both humans and the Krill, exploring six planets utilizing an ever-expanding set of tools and abilities, and jumping into the cockpit to engage enemy forces in intense shmup-style combat using more than 70 different Gun Data items.

Gorgeous pixel-art graphics, epic boss battles, and a twist-filled story with multiple endings await.

Additional details about Sigma Star Saga, including information on platform availability and news about physical editions, will be shared in the months leading up to the game's launch.

 

As revealed at Anime Expo, independent game studio WayForward is proud to announce that Sigma Star Saga is scheduled to return in 2025. Licensed by Bandai Namco Entertainment and powered by Limited Run Games' Carbon Engine, this cult classic will be released on modern consoles and PC, as well as on a Game Boy Advance-compatible repro cart.
