The spiritual successor to the canceled Thunderforce VI which was featured earlier here, now officially is one step closer to being on store shelves. Broken Thunder is scheduled for release on May 3rd, 10 years after the last installment of the Thunderforce series. The game will ship with both a limited edition collector’s package that includes the original score by Thunderforce fan favorite Factory Noise & AG, and a regular version that will be released without the bonuses.
Though the game is not an officially licensed Thunderforce project, the names of the ships and weapons, as well as the story are going to be all too familiar to Thunderforce fans. The game will ship on a DVD-Rom for Windows-based PCs.
