With the recent announcement that the highly regarded bullet-absorbing shmup Schildmaid MX would launch on Steam and consoles, developer HitP studio have released an almost revamped version of the original Itch.io release for its awaiting new player base.
The Steam release is out today, and players can expect new modes, a replay option, new languages, additional ship colors, balance changes and lots of small fixes and improvements compared to the original release a year back.
HitP Studio has been very busy with supporting the original with a slew of updates during its initial run on Itch.io. Still, now it promises its original early adopters that all features introduced in the Steam version are also available as a free update on Itch.io.
The console release is promised to be published this year by indie-publisher Eastasiasoft. We are planning that version for a review, but in the meantime, you could take a look at a video review by EuroRetroGamer of the original Itch.io version.
