Another retro classic incoming. Thunder Force AC will be added to the Sega Ages lineup on Nintendo Switch later this month.
The new version of Thunder Force AC hosts an array of new features, including enhanced visuals and a new game mode.
Although based on the original arcade release, the port includes three unlockable ships taken from later Thunder Force titles. It also features a Kids Mode to help players with increased attack power, additional credits, and the ability to retain your weapons even after your ship has been destroyed.
The game also features two different sets of online leaderboards – Expert and Freestyle. The former is for playing with default settings enabled and the latter for when settings have been changed. Last but not least, there’s an option to save and view replays.
As with other Sega Ages releases, Thunder Force AC includes a stereo sound mix, HD rumble, a CRT-like vintage display, and a cabinet mode that allows you to recreate that classic arcade ambience. Save states also ensure that pilot errors become a distant memory.
Sega Ages Thunder Force AC will be released via the Nintendo Switch eShop in the Americas and Europe on May 28, 2020.
