Get ready for feature-packed fun!
Guatemala-based development team 502 Studios has revealed their newest project: 502’s Arcade. This announcement comes in the form of a promotional video, which you can check out above!
The video features a whole slew of games that will be included in the release, including sections showing off procedural dungeon-crawling gameplay, platforming, puzzles, and more.
Additionally, the video teases the inclusion of even more game modes to be revealed in the future, with footage of what seems to be a pirate-themed game with treasure chests. Each of these modes will have associated leaderboards with daily, weekly, and all-time high scores.
As of right now, a solid release date isn’t confirmed, but the video does say that the title is “coming soon” to Nintendo Switch.
You can check out an overview of the title below, including a description of the anthology-style game, a brief history of its development and inception, and the features you can inspect when it’s released sometime soon!
502’s Arcade is a collection of fast paced arcade games. Ghost hunting in an procedural dungeon crawler, fast reflex puzzle solving in a potion shop, blasting through alien enemies and more! Get good old arcade fun featuring modern mechanics and challenge your way to the top of the leaderboards.
We spent a lot of time thinking about what would be the best way to debut on PC and consoles, and although we had so many ideas, we finally decided to sort of pay a tribute to all these years we’ve been working in games, and decided to take the core loops of several game design ideas we have had over the years and designed score chaser games around them. We’ve always loved that feeling of beating someone on a leaderboard at the arcades, so we tried to replicate that and infuse it with some modern ideas. We’re very excited to be releasing this game, as it means a lot to us in so many ways.
• TIMELESS ACTION - The games are designed to be engaging right from the start, it’s up to you if you want to play just a few minutes or maybe a few hours!
• HIGH REPLAYABILITY - Take your own pace to master all of the games, some will be easier, some will be harder, but practice will take you far. You’ll also get plenty of achievements to challenge yourself while at it!
• PAST MEETS PRESENT - Bringing you back that feeling of being just a few points away of the top score, but now with Daily, Weekly and All time leaderboards, you have a reason to keep coming back to try to best others and yourself.
• AWESOME SOUNDTRACK - Whether you’re fighting frantically with some aliens or comfortably solving some puzzles, each game has the perfect music for it.
