We’re pleased to announce that Cosmic Star Heroine is scheduled to release this summer for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. $14.99 will get you a cross-buy version full of hours of turn-based RPG goodness!

We’re also excited to share the first full-fledged trailer for the game! Make sure to have your speakers turned up for the full effect!

In addition to the main release on PlayStation Store, we’ve also teamed up with Limited Run Games to do a physical run of the game for the collectors out there.

We’ve been working on Cosmic Star Heroine since 2013 and are excited that you all will soon have a chance to experience it yourselves. We’d like to thank our Kickstarter backers, Shane Bettenhausen and all the wonderful people at PlayStation, Chris Geehan and Dan Byrne-Mccullough at HyperDuck for the amazing soundtrack, Laura Shigihara for her help with a very special song, James Hearn and Angelo DeGrandis from LogicHole Studios for putting the trailer together, and everyone who has helped us on this journey.

Uncover conspiracies, travel to exotic planets, fight unspeakable evil, and save the galaxy! Look forward to Cosmic Star Heroine, coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita this summer!

  • I have been waiting two years for this game to come out and I am super excited! Awesome news guys!

    • MarkedByAshes

      Not surprised to see you’re the first comment…this looks right up your alley. :D
      And after watching the trailer, I’m intrigued as well.

  • Day 1, both physical & digital.

    • Where can i order a physical copy of this ?

      I really want one !

    • I’m with you and can’t wait. I’d never heard of this until a few weeks ago when this trailer came out and now I’m pumped. Phantasy Star is my favorite RPG series ever and I loved Chrono Trigger so a hybrid of the two is a must buy.

      Just need a release date and when I can go pick up the physical copy.

  • For literally no reason, I’ve put off playing this game. I guess this is why… Cross buy? Brilliant!

  • HussamFelimban

    Since it was announced for PS Vita, I’ve been very looking forward to this game. I’m sure it’ll be great. I’m just wondering whether the Vita version will be released at the same time as the PS4 version, and whether the Vita version will also have a limited physical run?

    • HussamFelimban

      Final question: Will the Vita version be compatible with the PSTV?

    • BooneIronshield

      I can’t recall seeing them mention anything about it but since it’s a turn-based RPG I would think it’d work with the PSTV with no problems.

    • Robert Boyd

      Goal is to have the Vita version come out at the same time as the PS4 version. The game looks so good on the Vita’s screen. :)

      And yes, there will be a physical edition for the Vita version as well.

  • madmanwithabox12

    Absolutely cannot wait for this one. Great trailer.

    I have one question: Europe?

  • Sorry, meant to ask earlier. Will the physical version be up for pre-order? Plus if so where and when?

    • BooneIronshield

      The physical version will be sold through the Limited Run Games website. Going by the Saturday Morning RPG physical release (the last LRG release I paid attention to) the physical release might be about $30. They make a limited quantity of copies and sell them in 2 batches, the first batch usually sells out in no more than 5 minutes.

    • They don’t do pre-orders. Follow them on Twitter @LimitedRunGames and they’ll tweet out when they’re going live.

    • lol you missed out on Futuridium and Oddworld New ‘n’ Tasty since SMRPG. Xeodrifter is up next some time this month =)

    • Oddworld New n Tasty was also sold in Best Buy. Guessing we are not going to be that lucky for this one though.

    • Ah. That only applied at shops in Cary, NC which I sometimes go to for work.

    • Thanks to those who replied now I know where to look for this. I really want to support games like this. I think good, classic jrpgs are a dying genre. That I’m weird I like having the physical case/disk for my games.

  • Been waiting 2 years for this on the Vita :) Thanks for sticking to your guns!

  • sockpuppetsami

    Will the physical release include a code for cross-buy?

  • I backed this game on Kickstarter back in 2013. It’s been a long wait, but this trailer makes the wait worth it.

  • Omg this looks so amazing.

  • DeeJayNoodles

    I’ve been waiting so long for this game to come out! Beyond excited and very proud of everyone involved :)

  • ShadowOfEden

    Reminds me of Phantasy Star, which is a great thing!

    • Anything that is described as a Phantasy Star + Chrono Trigger love child is an auto buy for me.

  • Holy crap. THIS IS AWESOME!!!!!!

    But now I got 3 questions:

    1. Cross-buy + save?
    2. Soundtrack release? (Preferably in a way that lets me listen to it outside my PlayStation devices?)
    3. I noticed there’s no voice acting in the trailer. I assume this will be the case in the final game, like a classic (J)RPG?

    • UltimateCrzzz

      Hey! So my name is Chris Geehan, I’m one of the guys from HyperDuck who wrote the soundtrack and the sound design for Cosmic Star Heroine. Wanted to just CONFIRM that you will be able to buy the soundtrack (or just stream it and enjoy it) from other sources that are not Playstation devices. We plan to release some physical versions as well, but more information on that in the near future.

      Cheers and thanks for the love!
      Chris.

    • AWESOMESAUCE!!!!!

  • Oooh yes!! I wish I could have backed Cosmic Star Heroine. I’m so getting the physical version, if it is available. Thanks for the news, everyone!

  • Will Limiten Run be selling a physical Vita version as well, or just PS4 version?

    • They’ve only announced a PS4 run so far. Might be like Volume where depending how that run goes they’ll consider a Vita version.

    • Robert Boyd

      Physical Vita edition as well.

  • DunningKrugerMD

    Day one buy for my Vita. Really looking forward to it!

  • the_FREELANCER

    Yes! Cross save too I hope. Soundtrack?

    • Robert Boyd

      Cross-save isn’t in yet, but I’m going to try to get it working.

      HyperDuck is planning on selling the soundtrack separately.

  • death_nation100

    This is so cool i’m so buy this.

  • It been a long time waiting for this. Can’t wait…will be getting the Physical version if I can make the line.

  • CrusaderForever

    Impressive, looking forward to this. Reminds me of Phantasy Star! Nicely done!

  • Cross-Buy is for digital only, right? Not physical?

  • It looks so good. Thanks for doing it in the 16 bit artstyle and not the 8 bit. I much prefer it. I wish you guys could bring your Penny Arcade games to the Vita. I never played the fourth one.

  • Well for those always looking for a PS Vita game there you have it nothing to cry about now.

  • Zoryu_of_Setsuna

    Well, I know what I am picking up. This looks really good.

  • This looks really cool… but… this summer is so packed I don’t know if I’ll be able to squeeze it in between the dozen other extremely awesome games coming…

  • Amazing! Great job and congratulations! Day 1 buy for my vita. Does it have a platinum trophy?

  • Will the ps4 physical copy comes with a vita download code?

  • This game looks awesome. Will the game have 20-30+hours of gameplay? Will there be a platinum trophy? Could you guys release the game digitally bundled with a cool dynamic them with the games theme in the background? Keep up the great work.

  • I just heard about this game today and consequently also just bought a vita. Super excited for this t looks great

  • Definitely getting this!

  • Will the Limited Run version come with a CD soundtrack?

  • This game looks badass! I love retro RPGs still to this day. I have some of your previous titles on steam so I’m well aware of who you guys are this is a definite purchase for me. I have just two questions; will there be PSTV compatibility and do you have a release date in mind or at least a month? I’m away from home sometimes and don’t bring my PS4 with me. I do bring my PSTV and don’t always feel like playing on my VIta. Keep up the awesome work, I’m really looking forward to this. :D

  • intheface88

    Had not heard of this game before, but it looks fantastic. Definitely on my list.

  • My Vita thanks you. Day 1 purchase from me!

  • Green_Marowak

    Where do I purchase the physical copy? I do not see a pre-order on amazon or anywhere.

    • The physical copy is being sold by a company called Limited Run Games. They only sell a small # of copies and they open it up at predetermined times.

      It’s hard to get physical copies this way but they truly are collector’s items. Try googling them for their site.
