What do you imply ‘Who’s Captain Tomaday?’
The retro-lovers over at QuByte Interactive have introduced a model new compilation spotlighting the works of lesser-remembered ’80s/’90s developer Visco Corporation — Now in improvement for PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch, Visco Collection affords a look again at some old-school arcade/Neo Geo releases.
The new compilation bundles collectively seven titles from the Visco archives, freshly emulated by indie developer PixelHeart. The game featured are Neo Geo shmup Andro Dunos (1992); futuristic sports activities game Flip Shot (1997) and its sequel Bang Bead (2000); side-scrolling actioner Ganryu (1999); rally racer Neo Drift Out (1996), soccer title Goal! Goal! Goal! (1995); and eventually the weird, tomato-based shmup Captain Tomaday (1999).
No additional particulars have been introduced, so we have no idea whether or not the gathering will embrace on-line play, save states, a museum mode, or any of the opposite options typical of different retro collections — resembling Capcom Arcade Stadium. There are some enjoyable titles bundled right here, although the one one I keep in mind seeing fairly generally on the scene is Neo Drift Out. Importantly, nonetheless, Captain Tomaday is lastly about to get his day within the solar, having fun with the celebrity and fortune that eluded the winged fruit throughout his preliminary run — smothered by the encroaching considerations of The Millennium Bug, little doubt.
Visco Collection is at present in improvement for PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch platforms.
