2438. Eleven years after the First Ceti War. The United Interstellar Federation and a secluded alien race from Tau Ceti are locked in a tense stalemate. Fourteen of the best pilots in the Federation have been recruited to single handedly win the inevitable second war.
Super Galaxy Squadron EX is an expansion/remaster/one-step-from-a-sequel to 2015's Super Galaxy Squadron, and takes the original game's frantic action and modern accessibility to vastly greater heights. New and returning features include:
Fourteen ships with unique stats and weapons to suit a variety of playstyles
Six stages of classic shmup action (and savage bosses) in Arcade Mode
An infinite onslaught to satisfy your scoring itch in Endless Mode
A range of difficulty options, from calm and newbie-friendly to basically impossible
Fully voiced cutscenes for the two people looking for a good story
New mechanics like Overdrive that help you kill things and get points even better
A (nearly) complete graphical overhaul
Still a whole lot of explosions (like you were ever worried)
Feeling nostalgic, or just want to see what's changed? Super Galaxy Squadron EX includes the original Super Galaxy Squadron, so load up your smaller, slightly less pretty ship for a trip down (one year old) memory lane. Or don't. It's up to you.
Super Galaxy Squadron is a fast-paced vertical shooter designed for human beings as well as shmup veterans. Featuring multiple game modes, a challenging but merciful difficulty curve, forgiving health system, and 14 playable ships.
