Space Invaders Forever Special Edition is now available to Pre-Order ahead of its boxset release later this year, and the original was certainly one of my first arcade treats back in the day, putting 10p a time for a game of Space Invaders into the sole arcade machine at swimming pool complex on Jacksons Lane, Hazel Grove, in the late ’70s and early ’80s. Today, it’s still great fun in all its many incarnations and formats.
And now, ININ Games have announced a Special Edition of their game which will contain the following items, which you can see in the above picture, and this will be available on Nintendo Switch in in Europe and North America:
- Special Edition Box
- Invader Rubber Keychain
- A3 Poster
- Invader Pin
- 4x Outdoor Stickers
- Invader Card
- Postcard Set
- Mini Art Plate with Cover Design
There’s also three fantastic games in the Space Invaders universe:
- Space Invaders Extreme: 16 stages, full of devious Invaders and thrilling boss fights. Featuring greatly improved graphics and interactive sound for a new immersive SPACE INVADERS experience! Practice individual stages in Free Play, then boost your high score in Arcade Mode! Can you find all the countless, hidden bonuses?
Space Invaders Gigamax 4 SE: The 4-player-coop-experience offers new stages, gimmicks and new music from TAITO’s awesome in-house sound team ‘ZUNTATA’. Players can team up with up to 3 friends to fight the Invaders and to clear the stages as fast as possible.
Arkanoid vs Space Invaders: A perfect union of two of TAITO’s most iconic and beloved Arcade Kings. Players are controlling the Arkanoid Vaus paddle ship to defeat waves of Space Invaders in 150 stages.
