Turrican, the 1990 side-scrolling shooter game, is coming back. During the Gamescom Opening Night Live stream, developer Factor 5 announced it’s returning for the 30th anniversary.
The anniversary release is being handled by Strictly Limited Games in conjunction with Factor 5. It’s unclear whether this will be a new game, a remake, or a port of the classic. In either case, the franchise has been dormant for a long time, with the last release being 1995’s Super Turrican 2.
Pre-orders for the game are now live on the Strictly Limited Games website. The two available editions–Collector’s and Ultra Collector’s–will hit Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, though a release date has yet to be confirmed. The Collector’s edition includes “volumes 1 and 2” of Turrican–possibly meaning Turricans 1 and 2–and other collectibles like a keychain, poster, soundtrack, and more. Meanwhile, the Ultra Collector’s edition includes all of the above and a 20cm Turrican figure, Acrylic diorama, Amiga-style Big-Box, and more.
Back in 2017, Factor 5 reacquired the rights to Turrican and was previously working on a canceled PS3 sequel called Turrican: Cyclone. The press release called this “the next chapter in Factor 5’s history.”
Strictly Limited is also still taking pre-orders for the Space Invaders: Invincible Collection on Switch.
