Now you're playing with power...JIM POWER!
Strictly Limited Games, through a partnership with QUByte and PIKO Interactive, have announced that the 1990s cult classic Jim Power: The Lost Dimension is getting a Switch release, alongside reprints for the NES and SNES. Pre-orders for the physical versions will open on May 29th, 2022.
In Jim Power: The Lost Dimension, the evil alien Vaprak is threatening to destroy the earth, which is the last planet that stands between it and the entry to the 5th dimension. If Vaprak succeeds, his species will flood the galaxy and all will be lost. It is up to Jim Power to infiltrate and slay the evil. Originally released in the ‘90s, Jim Power was hailed for its outstanding graphics and challenging gameplay. Now Jim is back and ready to do it all over again.
The Switch version of Jim Power: The Lost Dimension includes the NES version of the game, developed from scratch by PIKO Interactive, along with the SEGA Genesis version, which never actually saw release.
The Limited Edition is limited to 2,000 copies, and is priced at $35. This gets you a standard game box and a copy of the game.
The Special Limited Edition is limited to 1,000 copies, and is priced at $55. This package includes the following:
- Special Limited Edition Box
- Reversible Cover
