Publisher All in! Games has announced that its arcade biplane shooter, Red Wings: American Aces, will launch on PC and Nintendo Switch today. A spin-off of their previous arcade shooter, Red Wings: Aces of the Sky, Red Wings: American Aces puts players in the pilot’s seat of a nostalgic, action-packed arcade shooter.
Illustrated in a vibrant comic-book style, Red Wings: American Aces offers a gaming mode for every occasion. Budding air aces have 15 different planes to choose from, each with its own unique plane skin. The campaign offers 30 missions available in local co-op for 1-2 players.
Players can also embark on three different gameplay modes: Score Battle, Time Battle, and Hide n’ Seek. The game is designed for fast frenetic arcade gameplay and short gameplay sessions.
An online competitive multiplayer mode rounds out the package. For larger aerial battles players can build a squad of five other players in elimination mode against other squads. Safety in numbers can make all the difference.
Along with the announcement of the release date comes a new trailer (below). See the biplane combat action in motion for yourself!
“Red Wings: American Aces honors the older arcade classics but adds a modern twist allowing for online multiplayer – the first arcade aerial shooter to do that! We wanted to pile on the fun factor in a big entertaining way rather than creating something locked into historical accuracy. There’s plenty of different planes and modes to choose from so each play session offers a new experience.”Norman Lenda, Development Director, All In! Games
