Sega will release Sega Ages Thunder Force AC for Switch via the Nintendo eShop in the west on May 28 for $7.99, the company announced.
The shoot ’em up title launched today in Japan.
Here is an overview of the game, via Sega:
Fasten your seat belts and get to your battle stations because the Galaxy Federation needs your help! Thunder Force AC is flying, dodging, and firing its way to the Sega Ages line-up for Switch on May 28!
Featuring a cavalcade of enhanced features and visuals, you can expect a devastating armada of entertainment right in your hands. This includes:
- Arcade Mode, a faithful adaptation of the original arcade release featuring three other unlockable ships lifted from later Thunder Force titles (Fire Leo-04 Rynex, Fire Leo-04 Rynex with the Thunder Claw weapon, and Fire Leo-3 Styx MP Mass Production Model).
- Kids Mode to help you on your mission by providing increased attack power, additional credits (nine instead of six), and the ability to retain your weapons even after your ship has been destroyed, among other adjustments.
- Two different sets of Leaderboards – “Expert” for those that play the game with its default settings enabled, and “Freestyle” for when the settings have been changed.
- The option to save and view Replays, including those from the leaderboards!
Finally, you can also expect a range of Sega Ages enhancements including stereo sound for most of the music and sound effects, HD Rumble, a CRT-like “Vintage” display, a “Cabinet” mode letting you relive that arcade ambiance, and save states, so any pilot error becomes a distant memory.
