We've promised a release across Europe prior the Christmas holidays and are glad to live up to it. Söldner-X: Himmelsstürmer will finally be available in your local PlayStation®Store across Europe, Australia and a few other countries (see below for more details) today. Make sure to download your copy right away and join the battle as well as our growing online ranking community.

Söldner-X originally made its PLAYSTATION®3 system debut two weeks ago when it was launched in North America and the first reviews have been coming in. IGN calls Söldner-X impressive with a stunning score of 8.0, saying "Like a classic shmup, the intense challenge will beat you down, but the fun of besting a level and unlocking continues or areas will keep you coming back for more."

Additional reviews we came across so far:

Gamer 2.0: 8.2 (Great)
"With the holiday rush past us, Soldner-X: Himmelssturmer is coming out at a nice point in time where you might want to sit down and pay the $10 to play some quality shoot 'em up action as things wind down a bit."

Co-Optimus: 4 out of 5
"Here I was, with my friend, sitting on the couch, clutching the controller as if I could fuse with it to cause my ship to move quick or shoot faster, and loving every minute of it."

Destructoid Impressions
"Any “shmup” fan with a PS3 would be foolish to pass on this $10 delight."
