ININ Games has announced that they will be releasing the Turrican Flashback collection on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on January 29.
The game will be available in both boxed and digital formats on both platforms on that day. The games were developed by the legends at Factor 5 and the collection contains four games: Turrican 1 & 2, Super Turrican, and Mega Turrican. You can watch the trailer and read more below. Stay tuned for our review of the collection.
Released originally on the classic home computer system, The Commodore Amiga, followed by sequels on Super Nintendo and Mega Drive, these remasters bring brand new elements to the tried and true formula offering both old and new fans something unique for this edition. Play tested and tailored by lifelong Turrican fans from across Europe, the new control scheme makes each Turrican game intuitive and easily accessible for all players as each button and command corresponds to action, and allows for even more precise shots and jumps than ever before.
The all new “Rewind” feature also allows for an optional easier challenge as the pitfalls for older game designs can be overcome by trial and error instantly. For those who wish to come back to the adventure at a later time, the save states are there to let you pick up exactly where you left off.
For those who miss the scanlines and curvatures of retro monitors, Turrican Flashback is not just a travel through time in terms of the games, but even the presentation! Use one of the best CRT shaders in the industry and customize your display to bring the action as close to the way you remember it looking on your nostalgic monitor, or opt for the new dynamic pixel perfect display which allows you to minimize the on screen icons and focus entirely on the gorgeous in-game graphics which still stands the test of time!
All this and of course, we cannot forget about the music! Chris Huelsbeck’s legendary scores are on full display and the games have been painstakingly programmed to ensure the highest quality playback of the original audio across the various sound chips Mr. Huelsbeck perfected. Enjoy the 7 minute epica that is “The Final Fight” in Turrican 2 in pristine original quality, or thump your feet to the beat of “Air Combat” in Mega Turrican, each and every track across every game is a bonafide classic!
