Akka Arrh getting physical release on Switch
Akka Arrh just recently came to the Switch eShop, and Atari has now announced a physical release for the game.
The company has partnered with Limited Run Games in North America and Numskull Games in Europe. In PAL regions, boxed versions will hit retail stores later this spring, including limited quantities of a special Day One Edition.
Brazilian pop culture artist Butcher Billy created the boxart. Two different versions of the key art will be available: one variant for North America and one for Europe.
Here’s some information about the game:
Developed by Llamasoft and legendary game designer Jeff Minter, who previously brought the original Tempest and its successor Tempest 4000 to life, Akka Arrh embodies his signature light-synth style and ability to craft uniquely insane but extremely fun arcade experiences. A mesmerizingly chaotic tube shooter boasting a psychedelic visual explosion of color, Akka Arrh embodies the neon style and “just one more round” mentality of the arcade era perfectly. Blast through swaths of enemy waves while manning the titular akka arrh, a suped-up cannon just begging to be unleashed, and experience not just one of Atari’s rarest games, but one of the rarest games of all time!
Pre-orders for the North American physical release of Akka Arrh on Switch start on March 24, 2023. Limited Run Games will be taking reservations on its website here.
