Inin Games has partnered with legendary studio Taito on a new compilation of 80s classics for the Nintendo Switch.

Taito Milestones includes ten games, “each representing a breakthrough in development and gaming history.”

The collection is a potted history of Taito’s work during the 1980s and features several arcade classics. 1981’s line drawing action puzzle game Qix is a personal favourite. Front Line and Elevator Action are also fondly remembered.
