Space Invaders: Invincible Collection coming west
Taito and Strictly Limited Games today announced that it will be bringing Space Invaders: Invincible Collection to North America and Europe. A trio of limited, physical versions of the Space Invaders Invincible Collection will be available exclusively on Strictly Limited Games’ website beginning June 28.
Below are the full details:
Space Invaders is a founding block of video game history that filled the arcades. It is said that the game made 100 Yen coins scarce and defined the visuals and mechanics in the first decade of video games.
Until this day, Space Invaders remains highly successful in the gaming industry as well as it is highly prominent in pop culture.
Now the most complete collection on cart ever, the Space Invaders Invincible Collection, is heading to the West. It combines all titles from the Japanese standard and special releases on one cartridge, including Space Invaders DX (1994), Space Cyclone (1980) and Lunar Rescue (1979) – the limited Western collection even has the console port of the game Arkanoid vs. Space Invaders on cartridge, a unique title which was only available as a download code in the Japanese version. The experts from Gotch Technology have ensured a perfect and accurate realisation on consoles.
The following games are part of the Space Invader Invincible Collection:
● Space Invaders (1978, Arcade) – b/w
● Space Invaders (1978, Arcade) – colour
● Space Invaders Part II (1979, Arcade)
● Majestic Twelve: The Space Invaders Part IV (1990, Arcade)
● Super Space Invaders ’91 (1990, Arcade)
● Space Invaders Extreme (2018)
● Space Invaders Gigamax 4 SE (2018)
● Arkanoid vs. Space Invaders (2017)
● Space Invaders DX (1994, Arcade)
● Space Cyclone (1980, Arcade)
● Lunar Rescue (1979, Arcade)
Arkanoid vs. Space Invaders (2017) is, for the first time ever, available on console. The game is a crossover of Arkanoid and Space Invaders and features gameplay elements from both games.
To celebrate 40 years of Space Invaders, Square Enix and TAITO held an art installation and limited time event in Japan called “PLAY! Space Invaders”. For the event, TAITO, with Square Enix, created a huge version of the game “Space Invaders Gigamax” with a 7 meter high by 15 meter wide screen. Now the game “Space Invaders Gigamax 4 SE” will be available as part of the Invincible Collection.
