Space Invaders

Fans of retro gaming with a modern twist might want to keep an eye out for the Switch release Space Invaders Forever.

Following on from its official announcement earlier this year, TAITO and ININ Games have now confirmed it'll be landing before the end of the year on 11th December. Once again, it'll be available in both digital and physical form.

This collection comes with three "awesome" titles. There's Space Invaders Extreme, Space Invaders Gigamax 4 SE and Arkanoid vs. Space Invaders. Here's exactly what you can expect from each game along with a trailer:

Space Invaders Extreme - Featuring greatly improved graphics and interactive sound to deliver a new immersive experience! Packed with vibrant visuals and a pulsing soundtrack. Space Invaders Extreme comes with 16 stages, packed with devious Invaders and fiendish boss fights. Practice individual stages in Free Play, then boost your high score to new heights in Arcade Mode! Can you find all the countless, hidden bonuses?

Space Invaders Gigamax 4 SE - Team up with up to 3 friends to shoot down the Invaders to clear the stages as fast as possible. This brand new 4-player-coop-experience offers new stages, gimmicks and new music written by TAITO's in-house sound team 'ZUNTATA'.

Arkanoid vs Space Invaders is the perfect union of two Arcade Kings. Two of TAITO’s most iconic and beloved video game series clash on console and combine elements from both arcade classics. Players are controlling the Arkanoid Vaus paddle ship to defeat waves of Space Invaders. Beat all 150 stages with your skills and unlock 40 different characters from the TAITO legacy. Each character has unique abilities - use more than 20 different skills, including power-ups and protective fire.

This collection is not to be confused with Space Invaders: The Invincible Collection - which contains 11 games (including these titles). You can learn more about this particular compilation in our Nintendo Life review of the Japanese version.
