Turrican 30th Anniversary Edition Brings The Classic Shooter To Gamescom
The classic 1990 action game will return to modern systems for its anniversary.
The anniversary release is being handled by Strictly Limited Games in conjunction with Factor 5. It's unclear whether this will be a new game, a remake, or a port of the classic. In either case, the franchise has been dormant for a long time, with the last release being 1995's Super Turrican 2.
Pre-orders for the game are now live on the Strictly Limited Games website. The two available editions--Collector's and Ultra Collector's--will hit Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, though a release date has yet to be confirmed. The Collector's edition includes "volumes 1 and 2" of Turrican--possibly meaning Turricans 1 and 2--and other collectibles like a keychain, poster, soundtrack, and more. Meanwhile, the Ultra Collector's edition includes all of the above and a 20cm Turrican figure, Acrylic diorama, Amiga-style Big-Box, and more.
Back in 2017, Factor 5 reacquired the rights to Turrican and was previously working on a canceled PS3 sequel called Turrican: Cyclone. The press release called this "the next chapter in Factor 5's history."
Strictly Limited is also still taking pre-orders for the Space Invaders: Invincible Collection on Switch.
