Turrican Returns on Switch
The legendary video game series Turrican is back with two Anthology collections announced for western release on Nintendo Switch.
During yesterday’s gamescom Opening Night Live Show, the return of a video game icon was celebrated with an exclusive trailer. On this Turrican’s 30th Anniversary, the classic video game franchise will rise in full force!
Factor 5 and Strictly Limited Games are above and beyond pleased to present you with a new chapter in the history of Turrican, a complete compilation of the classic action series – now on modern platforms.
The sensational Turrican series has been heralded as one of the finest video games of all time, mixing exploration with non-stop action, and one of video game’s finest soundtracks by legendary German composer Chris Huelsbeck. The optional in-game soundtrack has been fully remastered and re-arranged.
Along with the original team at Factor 5, Strictly Limited Games curated and developed an anthology that not only lets you play through the history of Turrican’s finest moments, but also discover new information and secrets from the many extras packed in.
The classic series comes with a selection of filters and borders to customize the experience. Additionally included is the fabled and long-lost Super Turrican Director’s Cut, which features all the cut content reinstated, as well as the brand new Score Attack version.
