Stuttgart, November 30th, 2021.
The Germany-based indie games publisher/developer ININ Games and the Japan-based video games developer Westone Bit Entertainment, today announced with great thrill and delight that the retro-like arcade action/adventure game “Clockwork Aquario” is now digitally available in EU for the PS4 (via PSN) and Nintendo Switch (via the Nintendo Eshop).
Record-breaking development time? After almost three decades, a lost gem from the arcade era, the last arcade game from legendary developers Westone, finally sees the light of day for the first time and is heading straight to modern home consoles.
Traveling from the year 1992, Clockwork Aquario now finally arrives on the screen and got the whole team involved more than excited for this release.
To make this special release possible, ININ Games, Strictly Limited Games and former members of the original team from legendary developer studio Westone joined forces to do some serious video game archaeology by unearthing this video game treasure while preserving the original vision and roots of the game. So retro game fans can now look forward to an authentic arcade gameplay that features:
– Colorful pixel graphics
– Beautiful animations
– Dynamic movement
– Fun gameplay
– 3 unique characters to choose from (Huck Londo, Elle Moon & Gush)
– Single player and 2 player co-op
– A superior soundtrack by Shinichi Sakamoto
– Plus, an ingame gallery giving some visual insights in the game’s history
The digital version of Clockwork Aquario is now available in the Nintendo eShops and PlayStation Stores in Europe.
