1987 arcade game 'Psychic 5' getting a Switch remake
Party like its 1987
Publisher City Connection and developer CRT Games have announced Psychic 5 Eternal, a remake of the 1987 arcade game Psychic 5, for Switch. The title is scheduled to launch sometime in Spring 2023.
Psychic 5 Eternal will be on display at the City Connection booth at the Tokyo Game Show 2022, and those who drop by the booth will be able to try out a demo. As for what Psychic 5 Eternal is all about, you can see the official description below.
This is a remake of Psychic 5, a game released in 1987 on arcades.
This game is an action game and your goal is to save your friends in a vast maze kept by the Demon King.
Your jumps are floaty and you can play five different characters, from a little girl to an old gramp.
It features an arcade mode with the old vertical screen, but also a brand new 16:9 screen ratio and a two-player mode—in which two players share the screen.
And that’s not all: you can switch between the old graphics and new ones made for this new title.
As for the soundtrack, new arrangements were done by Shinichi Sakamoto, the original composer of the arcade version.
