Yes, that’s right. There is a “new” Space Invaders game releasing in 2021. Well, I say new, it’s actually a new collection of Space Invaders games. The Space Invaders Invincible Collection is coming real soon to Nintendo Switch. The collection will launch digitally on August 17th for the aforementioned Nintendo hybrid handheld.
Taito and ININ Games are pleased to announce this, and I can understand why. Space Invaders is genuinely a game that holds a special place in a lot of peoples hearts, especially in the hearts of the retro fans among us. The thing about Space Invaders is not the fact it’s such a classic franchise. It’s the fact that over the years it has made such a name for itself that everyone has heard of it. Gamers or not. Gotta love pop culture.
