The easy to pick-up twin stick shooter will open its gates for treasure-greedy action junkies on Christmas Eve, 24th December 2018.
Super Treasure Arena features competitive play sessions focussing on battling your buddies on the same screen, just like we did many a night with multiplayer gems such as Bomberman. Besides real human enemies and bots, there’s a menagerie of monsters to shake things up and to drop even more coins for you – collect them all!https://www.youtube.com/embed/VN8HdMfoMJM
Since there’s no pre-game inventory loadout in Super Treasure Arena, you pick up your weapons on-the-fly. Depending on which you’ll find, you either shoot the hell out of your buddies or try to avoid direct confrontations, first focusing on treasures and smaller monsters. On top of that, each of the five characters has a unique special ability to turn the match around instantly. Either way, you need to grab coins and avoid being blasted by your “buddies”. The action is non-stop and a ton of fun!About Super Treasure Arena
Super Treasure Arena is a unique mix of retro-inspired arcade action and objective-based arena shooters. The result is a frantic game where collecting and stealing loot from your opponents is the key to victory. Play alone or challenge friends locally via split-screen for 2-4 players!
