Seat belt signs are officially on. Thunder Force AC is coming to the SEGA AGES lineup for the Nintendo Switch on May 28, 2020. The game will feature a veritable parade of enhanced features and visuals.
- Arcade Mode, a loyal adaptation of the original arcade release featuring three additional unlockable crafts lifted from later Thunder Force titles (FIRE LEO-04 RYNEX, FIRE LEO-04 RYNEX with the Thunder Claw weapon, and FIRE LEO-3 STYX MP Mass Production Model).
- A Kids Mode providing increased attack power, additional credits (9 instead of 6), and the ability to retain your weapons even after your ship has been destroyed, among other adjustments.
- Two different sets of Leaderboards – "Expert" for those who play the game with its default settings enabled, and "Freestyle" for when you went and adjusted the game's settings to your liking.
- You can also expect a range of SEGA AGES enhancements including stereo sound for most of the music and sound effects, HD Rumble, a CRT-like "Vintage" display, a "Cabinet" mode that will let you relive that arcade ambience, and save states, so any pilot error becomes nothing more than a distant memory.
SEGA AGES Thunder Force AC will land on the Nintendo Switch eShop in the Americas and Europe on May 28, 2020. The title's price tag will read £6.55 ($7.99).
