ININ Games is proud to share the exciting news that Turrican, Europe’s greatest action video game series, will be coming to retail for the first time in almost 30 years in a brand new, curated collection from the original development team Factor 5 titled Turrican Flashback! This curated retail edition aims to make Turrican available to a wider audience and complement the limited collector's editions from Strictly Limited Games that are dedicated to collectors and the biggest fans of Turrican.

The intergalactic action adventure that took video games by storm throughout the 1990s, Turrican is heralded around the world as one of the finest examples of action video games of all time. Its unique mix of exploration, atmosphere and blistering non-stop action pushed the genre forward and set the benchmark for years to come, and since its original release in 1991 has proudly been supported by one of the most enthusiastic and loyal fanbases in the medium. And of course, when talking Turrican, you have to mention the incredible musical score by living legend Chris Huelsbeck which has been echoing in play-rooms, venues and even symphony halls for three decades!

Turrican Flashback brings together 4 of the greatest titles in the series with Turrican, Turrican II: The Final Fight, Mega Turrican and Super Turrican all in one package! Developed jointly between the original team at Factor 5 and preservation specialists Ratalaika Games, Turrican has never felt, looked and sounded better! New reworked controls makes the classic home computer classics an ease to pick up and play, welcoming new and old fans to relive the classic with the touch of a button. Additionally, new filters and dynamic on screen elements allows players to customize their experience, going full “Retro” or enjoy the game in full widescreen with minimal on-screen HUD elements. All this with crystal clear and perfectly rendered audio playback of the classic soundtracks and sound effects!

That's a nice collection of Turrican games. Good to see Factor 5 are still alive too.

If they still have it in them. They should make more air combat games.

Back in the GC they should have gave a shot to making a Star Fox game. I wonder if the Rogue Squadron progression could have added more depth to the core formula.

You should rather look into these two collections as they have far more games:

Ah another collection, after I ordered the limited run collection of Turrican games. Well I guess in the future I'll wait for retail releases of limited run games that are big in europe to be released by a european company later.
At least until Limited Run sets up their euro office.

And Factor 5 was the port team that did several console/micro computer versions. The first 2 games were made almost entirely by one person for the C64 entiely seperate from Factor 5.
