With just one and a half weeks to go, industry legend Yu Suzuki (known for Virtua Fighter 4, Out Run, Hang On, Afterburner, etc.) and his company, Ys Net, have unveiled a new Air Twister trailer. The game has remained relatively under the radar for the general public due to its exclusivity on Apple Arcade. However, now that the exclusivity deal has run its course, ININ Games is set to bring the game out of obscurity and onto every other available contemporary gaming platform on November 10th, 2024.
Following the June announcement trailer, this latest trailer delves into the progress-based unlockable game modes, and there are quite a few:
Can you defeat the incoming waves of enemies within the time limit? The faster you shoot them down, the faster they appear. Vanquish the outpour of enemies, one by one!
This mode puts you in a no-holds-barred old-school arcade experience with no useful items, a high default difficulty setting and quick bursts of intense shooting action. In this hardcore version of Air Twister, beat the game with one life and one life only. Starting Hearts change with difficulty level.
In this silly topsy-turvy mode, your perspective changes from a 3D view to a classic 2D side scroller! Give it your all to not touch any enemies or obstacles while zipping through the levels on your loyal winged elephant. Choose between two submodes! Get rich or die trying in Score Attack Fluffy, or grab as many stars as you can in Get Stars Fluffy while soaring like fluff in the wind!
“Boss Rush” delivers a high dose of adrenaline as you will face every single one of the game’s ten boss monsters in quick succession. The faster you take them down, the higher your ranking in the high-score table!
Double the speed. Double the challenge! Turbo Mode is a high-difficulty mode with everything at 2x speed. Ditch the dumb luck and use pure skill to streak through the stages and vanquish incoming enemies to become the Turbo Queen (extraordinarily nice, right?!)
A simple minigame in which you must break cubes by tapping them numerically. The faster you do it, the higher your score. Sounds simple enough, right? But how focused can you be when the ever-increasing number of cubes start spinning around in different directions?
Dash through a seemingly never-ending mysterious tunnel and defeat the oncoming raids of enemies! This stage is twice as long as normal stages, so let your rail shooter skills shine and try to reach the end of the tunnel safely.
The game features 12 levels with a heavy Alice in Wonderland vibe, featuring 20 “vanguard” creatures and 10 stage bosses. It also features a an amazing soundtrack by in -Spain residing- Dutch artist, Valensia. You might know him for his evergreen “Gaia”. The game will be available on November 10th and will cost you $/€24.99. Against ININ Games tradition, the physical release isn’t released through it subsidiary Strictly Limited Games. This time you can purchase it through regular “unlimited” retail stores like Amazon.
