Retro Shmup Iro Hero Lands on PS4 and Xbox One

First launched in June 2018 for Nintendo Switch, we are excited to bring the retro-inspired vertical-scrolling shoot ‘em up Iro Hero from developer Artax Games to PS4 and Xbox One.

Iro Hero will be available digitally for just US$5.99/€5.99 on these dates:

  • December 17th: PS4 Americas
  • December 18th: PS4 Europe, Xbox One worldwide
  • December 20th: PS4 Asia & Japan

Included in the downloads are all recent game updates, including four exciting game modes, increased ship speed, added animations and re-balanced difficulties.

To celebrate our return to Xbox One publishing, Xbox One users can enjoy a 20% launch discount until January 1, 2020.

Iro Hero combines the old school, pixelated charm of 80s arcade shooters with modern mechanics and gameplay. Combining complex enemy AI, polarity mechanics, and light puzzle elements, Iro Hero unleashes mind-melting mayhem on all platforms! Players will have to shift polarities to avoid color-coded hazards, balance an array of unlockable skills, and make use of reflective surfaces and color areas if they’re to make it through Iro Hero’s 9 action-packed stages intact.
