Continuing from the release bubble bubble at the end of December, Hamster has now officially announced the first Arcade Archives release in 2023.
This time it’s Namco’s classic arcade space shooter Galaxy. This game was first released in 1981 and is a sequel to the 1979 release Galaxy (previously released on eShop last November). In this sequel, your mission is to once again shoot every alien in sight. Galaga sequel (gaplus) was also released on Switch last year.
“The distribution of “Arcade Archives Galaga” has begun. A masterpiece of shooting game released by Namco in 1981. ACA in 2023 opens with Galaga! Enjoy it.”
Like all other entries in the Hamster Arcade Archive series, this one also “honestly” recreates the classic arcade experience. It comes with modern enhancements – including additional settings that allow players to adjust difficulty, screen type, etc. Here are some screenshots from the official Nintendo website:
When it comes online on the eShop, it will set you back $7.99 or the equivalent in your region. Excited about this? What other Hamster classic would you like to see revived in 2023? Let us know in the comments section.
