Space Invaders Switch

TAITO is set to release a physical version of the Space Invaders Invincible Collection on Switch in the west thanks to a partnership with Strictly Limited Games.

The release offers "the most complete collection on cart ever," combining all titles from the Japanese standard and special releases on a single cartridge. It also boasts a port of Arkanoid vs. Space Invaders, a unique title which was only available as a download code in the Japanese version.

Three limited, physical versions of the Invincible Collection will be available on Strictly Limited Games' website starting from 28th June. They'll include the games listed below, and depending on which tier you purchase, you'll also be able to grab a soundtrack, stickers, flyers, instruction cards, an arcade book, and more:

● Space Invaders (1978, Arcade) – b/w
