    '80s arcade game gets a remake.

    City Connection and CRT Games announced Psychic 5 Eternal, a remake of 1987 arcade game Psychic 5, for Nintendo Switch.

    Psychic 5 Eternal releases in spring 2023. The remake will be playable at City Connection’s Tokyo Game Show 2022 alongside WiZmans World ReTry. Tokyo Game Show 2022 is set for September 15-18 at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan.

    Here’s an overview of the game via Gematsu:

    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.

    Lastly, the announcement trailer is available below:
