We've been waiting since last October for Vita space combat sim Starlight Inception. Well, now it's finally here.

That is, it is if you live in the US. We Europeans will have to wait until tomorrow to get our mitts all over it.

For those not in the know, Starlight Inception is a mix of first-person and third-person spaceship battles. There's a single-player campaign and a tower defence mode called Fly Patrol.

There are also several multiplayer options if you want to test your skills against others.

Starlight Inception is available right now on PSN in the US for $22.99. It will cost European Vita owners £12.99 / €16.99.

Starlight Inception

You may recall that we were able to go hands-on with Starlight Inception back in January. So, if you want more information about the game, go and read what we made of it.

Here's a quick snippet from that hands-on: "The air is filled with radio chatter and static, you feel like your own craft is quite limited in its abilities, and I like that. This is a near-future scenario, and it feels appropriately close to our reality."
