The future truly is now with word that DotEmu will be releasing the super futuristic quasi-sport Windjammers on August 29. The explosive-disc-throwing game of legend will be making its way to PS4 and PS Vita with six characters, local and online multiplayer, and a Ranked Mode with ladder support.

During the period, users will be testing the game’s matchmaking system, leaderboard, and net code. The cutoff date is June 5.
