LOS ANGELES, CA (December 8, 2015) — UFO Interactive and Retroism today announced the PS4 release of the retro-styled space shooter, Zotrix. Zotrix is a twin-stick space shooter that combines the retro look and feel of 80s and 90s arcade games with modern gameplay elements, customization and depth. In Zotrix, players will experience classic fast-paced arcade shooting action that requires quick wits and even faster reflexes, paired with modern gameplay mechanics such as branching mission routes, story-driven quests, ship upgrades, resource trading and more.

“Fans of arcade shooters and space trading games will find a lot to love with Zotrix,” said Jonathan Wan, CEO of Retroism’s parent company, Tommo, Inc. “This is a great addition to the Retroism catalogue and we’re pleased to make it our first title available for PS4.”

After a successful PC, Mac and Linux release on Steam, exclusive PS4 features and content have been added to the game, including:
-Arcade Mode brings a whole new way to experience the game, with new boss fights in 20 back-to-back missions that emphasize action over the strategic depths of Story Mode.
