ININ & Ys Net have today announced that pre-orders for the physical edition of Air Twister are now live. Furthermore, both the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 5 releases of Air Twister will receive special editions, with bonus content included.

Players can get ready to experience the exhilarating 3D shooter crafted the legendary game designer Yu Suzuki, the mastermind behind Shenmue, Space Harrier, Virtua Fighter, and Out Run. Air Twister is Suzuki’s return to his arcade roots: an easy-to-learn, pick-up-and-play shooter with a soundtrack by symphonic rock legend Valensia.

According to ININ, Air Twister also presents ‘quirky and unique moments’ that you will not find in ‘any other contemporary game’. We’ll admit, there is something special about fighting a huge glowing space squid from the back of an armored flying fish while, at the same time, a lush glam rock solo reaches its crescendo.

The game consists of 12 differently designed stages. Each is full of novel enemies and huge boss monsters that you fight with one of five weapons. You’ll be speeding through highly detailed and imaginative 3D worlds throughout. With each playthrough, you unlock more features and gameplay items to help you in future attempts.
