Squad 51 vs. The Flying Saucer

Squadron 51 has a new name, as it’s now known as Squad 51 vs. The Flying Saucers. Additionally, it has been given an updated Fall 2022 release window.

The project was first announced for Switch way back in 2018. There have been a few delays since then, as it has been most recently on track for last year. If all goes well, the game hopefully won’t be pushed back any further.

Below is an official overview of Squad 51 vs. The Flying Saucers with more details:

A group of extraterrestrials called the Vega Corporation one day visit earth to provide unlimited resources to earth to help the human race endure.

Experience the story unfold through live-action cutscenes and dubbed voice overs in black and white.
