Jamestown+ getting physical Switch release
There's a new James in town
Limited Run Games has revealed that they’re giving Jamestown+ a physical release on Switch, and pre-orders for the title are set to open on December 23rd, 2022. This time around there is only one physical option to purchase, and it’s priced at $35. This standard release will get you a boxed copy of Jamestown+ on a game card.
Built from the ground up to be exciting for players of all skill levels, Jamestown+ is friendly to shoot ‘em up newcomers while also offering the full-throttle challenge that die-hard fans of the genre crave.
Set on 17th-century British colonial Mars, Jamestown+ is a neoclassical cooperative shoot-em-up for up to four players. Lush pixelart and an award-winning orchestral soundtrack immerse you in Raleigh’s battle to protect Britain’s last bastion: Jamestown colony. Jamestown+ features all the intensity, depth, and lovingly handcrafted pixels of a classic arcade shooter, with a modern twist: deeply-integrated cooperative gameplay.
Eight years in the making, this is the definitive expanded and remastered edition of the critically-acclaimed debut title from Final Form Games.
This game has been available for a long time but if you haven't played it, I definitely recommend looking into trying it out, even if you aren't a big shoot 'em up fan.
The 2D visuals remind me of Metal Slug and the soundtrack is VERY good. It's one of those games that requires you to play on harder difficulties to progress to the final mission but it isn't an unreasonable challenge.
I'll never forget it because it was the first game I played and beat after moving into my own place.
