  • Space Invaders Gigamax 4 SE -> Team up with up to 3 friends to shoot down the invaders to clear the stages as fast as possible. This brand new 4-player-coop-experience offers new stages, gimmicks and new music written by TAITO’s in-house sound team ‘ZUNTATA’.
  • Arkanoid vs. Space Invaders -> Arkanoid vs. Space Invaders is the perfect union of two Arcade Kings. Two of TAITO’s most iconic and beloved video game series clash on console and combine elements from both arcade classics. Players are controlling the Arkanoid Vaus paddle ship to defeat waves of Space Invaders.

Bubble Bobble 4 Friends: The Baron is Back!:

Bubble Bobble 4 Friends is a single-screen platform action game released as a complete new addition to the legendary Bubble Bobble series, in which you control the bubble dragons Bub and Bob, clearing stages by blowing bubbles to trap enemies, then bursting them to defeat them.

Players can acquire special skills by completing an area, and level them up by collecting letter bubbles that form the word “EXTEND”.  You can play together in multiplayer with up to four players. Also included is the original arcade version of Bubble Bobble.

Switch fans haven’t been forgotten and are in for a special treat. Nintendo Switch fans who purchased the current Bubble Bobble 4 Friends will be able to download the new content with all new stages and features for free.

Both Space Invaders Forever and Bubble Bobble 4 Friends: The Baron is Back! will be available later this year physically and digitally for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.
