Target Acquired: Turrican Anthology Vol. I & II

Turrican Anthology Vol. I & II, from Factor 5, offers an expansive look at the Turrican series, from its Amiga roots through to the final entry on the SNES. Now, you may be thinking to yourself... Didn't Factor 5 just release a collection of Turrican games last year? And you'd be right. The Turrican Flashback collection contained four of the games included here, but fans of the series may be interested in several new offerings in this anthology. First and foremost, there's a whole game here that wasn't in the previous collection, namely Turrican 2. There are also some variations on these games with score attacks, director's cuts, and the Amiga version of Turrican 3 as a standalone release. On top of this, the anthology includes manual scans, a remastered soundtrack from Chris Huelsbeck, previously unreleased concept art, and the ability to vew the full map for every game in the collection... and even play the game with the expanded map enabled.

Turrican Anthology Vol. I & II were originally released in physical form, but now they're available for Switch via eShop (Vol 1 / Vol 2), and PS4/PS5 via PSN (Vol 1 / Vol 2). Check our coverage here.
