SEGA has confirmed on Twitter that fans of its excellent SEGA Ages range of titles will be able to download SEGA Ages Thunder Force AC on Thursday 28th May. The shoot ’em up will be priced at $7.99. Here’s some of the features you can expect when the game launches:
- 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 (nine instead of six), 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.
- The option to save and view Replays, including those from the leaderboards!
