8-bit game will be release on cartidge for Famicom and Famicom-compatible game consoles in July of 2016
It's time to shoot for the stars, because RIKI and Columbus Circle are releasing an original, 8-bit video game entitled Kira Kira Star Night DX for the Nintendo Famicom and Famicom-compatible game consoles in July of 2016.
While not an officially-licensed Nintendo product, the game will feature retro-style graphics by RIKI, Ein, and Hiroshi Ono as well as chiptune music from 11 different artists: Takeaki Kunimoto, Yuriko Keino, Yuzo Koshiro, Nobuyuki Shioda, Tappy, Manami Matsumae, Hally, Bun, Robokabuto, Yasuhisa Watanabe, and Takeshi Yokemura.
Kira Kira Star Night DX is a jumping action game where players control Kirara-chan and help her to collect stars that fall from the sky. The goal is to collect enough stars before the time limit expires, and the game features 9 stages total.
Kira Kira Star Night DX will be released in July of 2016. The game uses an "open" pricing system, so it does not have a set retail price, although Amazon Japan is listing it for 5378 yen ($49.04 US).
