Cosmic Defenders, Fiery Squirrel’s fast-paced revolving shooter, was originally planned to launch on April 28.

Cosmic Defenders will be the first game as part of the Natsume Indie Program, “which partners the company with independent developers around the world to introduce creative, innovative games to a wider audience.”
