Actraiser Renaissance Hits Nintendo Switch Later Today
New visuals! New bosses! Updated music!
SNES classic Actraiser has been remastered for Nintendo Switch in the form of Actraiser Renaissance, which launches on the Switch later today.
The game updates the original 16-bit Enix / Quintet title, which was unique in mixing platforming action sections with Populous-style city-building segments. The gameplay remains largely the same, but benefits from a 2.5D visual upgrade.
Yuzo Koshiro's legendary soundtrack will also get an upgrade thanks to a special re-arranged version by the great man himself, but you'll be able to toggle between this and the original soundtrack at will. New bosses and levels are also promised by Square Enix, as well as quick-save and auto-save features and an 'enhanced game system'.
Actraiser Renaissance is also available on PS4, Steam, iOS and Android.
