Set the Galaxy Ablaze in SEGA AGES Thunder Force AC, Now Out for Nintendo Switch

The legendary space shooter powerhouse takes to the skies once again. Armed with a payload of electric entertainment, Thunder Force AC joins the SEGA AGES fleet of enhanced classics for the Nintendo Switch starting today!

From its breakneck gameplay to its intense soundtrack, Thunder Force AC is the perfect companion to your Switch library. Expect a breadth of SEGA AGES additions, including:

  • Arcade Mode, a faithful adaptation of the original arcade release featuring three other unlockable ships 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)
  • Kids Mode to help you on your mission by 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 that play the game with its default settings enabled, and “Freestyle” for when the settings have been changed
  • And the option to save and view Replays, including those from the leaderboards!

Other improvements include stereo sound for most of the music and sound effects, HD Rumble, a CRT-like “Vintage” display, a “Cabinet” mode letting you relive that arcade ambience, and save states, so any pilot error becomes a distant memory.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
