Strictly Limited Games has finally reliable that it is bringing Westone’ mislaid arcade pretension Clockwork Aquario (known as Tokeijikake no Aquario in Japan) to modern-day systems, including Switch.

Originally grown in 1992 by Ryuichi Nishizawa – famous for his work on a Wonder Boy array – a diversion was built on Sega’s System 18 arcade hardware. However, it was never expelled and was, until recently, insincere mislaid in a mists of time.

Strictly Limited has managed to find a source formula for a diversion and has worked with ININ Games and Sega to revitalise it. This charge has compulsory new element to be created, as some elements – such as sound effects, song and some graphics – were not recoverable from a source code. In sequence to do this, members of a strange Westone group have been called in, including arch programmer Takanori Kurihara, composer Shinichi Sakamoto and Ryuichi Nishizawa himself.

Nishizawa said:

Clockwork Aquario is a good square of 2D art, into that a pixel artists put their hearts and souls. we would like to demonstrate my intense honour and thankfulness to those who have worked so tough to revive it.

As good as removing a digital recover this year, singular earthy editions will also be done available.
