Iconic shoot'em up Radiant Silvergun is heading to PC. The game, created by Treasure and Live Wire, will debut on Steam on August 18.

The discussed item can already be added to your wish list on Valve's platform; we also got to know its (incomplete) system requirements.

  1. Radiant Silvergun on Steam

Radiant Silvergun - PC system requirements

  1. Memory: 4 GB RAM
  2. Graphics card: 2 GB GeForce GTX 750 or better
  3. DirectX: Version 9.0c
  4. Disk space: 2 GB
  5. Operating system: Windows 7/8/8.1/10/11
  1. Radiant Silvergun debuted on arcade machines in May 1998, while in July of the same year it appeared on the SEGA Saturn console. Non-Japanese players were only able to play it in 2011, when the Xbox 360 version went on sale. Eleven years later, the item was also made available to owners of the Nintendo Switch console.
  2. The title takes us on a journey into the future, and its storyline focuses on a group of fighter pilots who fight against waves of enemies summoned by a mysterious crystal.
  3. In Radiant Silvergun the action is viewed from top-down perspective. The pillar of the gameplay are dynamic skirmishes, during which we use an arsenal including both futuristic guns and a powerful sword to eliminate enemies.
  4. Our actions are continuously evaluated by a scoring system, which is based on the colors of adversaries. Destroying targets of the same color not only provides us with a point bonus, but also gradually increases the effectiveness of the weapons we use.
