Infinite Dreams have announced that Sky Force Anniversary, the modern, air-based shooter has been released on Xbox One. The game launched on PlayStation consoles a few weeks ago. Sky Force Anniversary is a recreation of the original Sky Force.
Sky Force Anniversary mixes the old with the new – it preserves the old school, arcade shooter feeling of the original while adding what players expect from a modern shmup: highly-polished graphics, new game modes and tons of replayability. The game features an extensive Single Player campaign where players’ main objective is to save the world from General Mantis – the deceitful leader of evil forces. In order to defeat him, gamers will have to blast through hordes of enemies, collect funds, rescue civilians and constantly enhance their ship with new, devastating power-ups.

Sky Force Anniversary allows players to choose between various types of weapons, passive skills and power-ups, starting from the impenetrable magnetic shield and ending with the mighty mega-bomb that annihilates all visible enemies with a huge blast. There’s a plethora of opponents and bosses waiting on every corner including tanks, fighters, choppers, ships, turrets and bombers.
Completing the main campaign isn’t the end of the adventure as players can invite their friends to play in Local Co-op mode, fulfill additional goals like completing a mission without a scratch or rescuing all civilians, and finally, they can compete with others by participating in weekly tournaments that take place on unique new levels, updated every 7 days.
