Invaders From The Depths of Space!

News: Space Invaders Invincible Collection is Being Released Physically on Switch in The West Courtesy of Strictly Limited Games! Waterm21

PR Hound has struck once again with another surprise announcement and it's another big one! TAITO has teamed up with Strictly Limited Games once again to bring the Switch title, Space Invaders Invincible Space to the west in physical form. There will be three limited editions available exclusively from Strictly Limited Games' website here. Sadly there is no digital version planned at present, but we'll let you know if that changes!

Here's the info regarding the collection from PR Hound's press release:

"Space Invaders is a founding block of video game history that filled the arcades. It is said that the game made 100 Yen coins scarce and defined the visuals and mechanics in the first decade of video games."

"Until this day, Space Invaders remains highly successful in the gaming industry as well as it is highly prominent in pop culture."

"Now the most complete collection on cart ever, the Space Invaders Invincible Collection, is heading to the West. It combines all titles from the Japanese standard and special releases on one cartridge, including Space Invaders DX (1994), Space Cyclone (1980) and Lunar Rescue (1979) - the limited Western collection even has the console port of the game Arkanoid vs. Space Invaders on cartridge, a unique title which was only available as a download code in the Japanese version. The experts from Gotch Technology have ensured a perfect and accurate realisation on consoles."

"Arkanoid vs. Space Invaders (2017) is, for the first time ever, available on console. The game is a crossover of Arkanoid and Space Invaders and features gameplay elements from both games."

"To celebrate 40 years of Space Invaders, Square Enix and TAITO held an art installation and limited time event in Japan called “PLAY! Space Invaders”. For the event, TAITO, with Square Enix, created a huge version of the game “Space Invaders Gigamax” with a 7 meter ¬†high by 15 meter wide screen.

Not sure why people tend to assume that extraterrestrial cultures are usually hostile invader archetypes, especially with well-known benevolent examples such as Kirby, E.T. and, of course, the Doctor. Still, I suppose even those characters have their hostile foes: Kirby has King Dedede, E.T. has (???), the Doctor has the Master, the Daleks, the Master, the Cybermen, the Master, the Sontarans, the Master, the Silence, the Master, Torchwood, the Master... did I mention the Master? Razz

Even the Mario & Luigi series has the Shroobs, so... yeah. Anyway, brilliant review, @Towafan7! Wink
