Factor 5 and ININ Games are getting ready for next week’s release of Turrican Flashback, a collection that brings four classic games in the series to Nintendo Switch and PS4. Come check it out!
The intergalactic action adventure that took video games by storm throughout the 1990s, Turrican is heralded around the world as one of the finest examples of action video games of all time. Its unique mix of exploration, atmosphere and blistering non-stop action pushed the genre forward and set the benchmark for years to come, and since its original release in 1991 has proudly been supported by one of the most enthusiastic and loyal fanbases in the medium. And of course, when talking Turrican, you have to mention the incredible musical score by living legend Chris Huelsbeck which has been echoing in play-rooms, venues and even symphony halls for three decades!
What’s included in the Turrican Flashback Collection? You get Turrican, Turrican II: The Final Fight, Mega Turrican, as well as Super Turrican! You can get this collection either digital on PSN or the Nintendo eShop, or you can visit our friends over at Strictly Limited Games to buy physical copies of the Turrican Anthology Vol. 1, which on top of the four games, will also include Super Turrican Director’s Cut. You can get a standard edition, a collector’s edition, and even physical SNES US or PAL copies of Super Turrican 1 or Super Turrican 2!
Turrican Flash Features:
A new control scheme
Making each Turrican game intuitive and easily accessible for all players. Each button and command correspond to action and allows for even more precise shots and jumps than ever before.
The new “Rewind” feature
