Space Invaders: Invincible Collection compiles classic titles for Nintendo Switch


Duh, Duh, Duh, Duh...

Few franchise names immediately recall the dawn of video games like Space Invaders. Legitimately a cultural icon, Taito's 1978 arcade, that didn't cause a shortage of the 100-Yen coin on release, has been referenced time and again in the 40 plus years since launch, with its influence still being found in many of today's top shmups.

Taito, via Weekly Famitsu, has announced that a new compilation is being put together for the Nintendo Switch, celebrating the legacy of this base-defending classic. Space Invaders: Invincible Collection will reunite the original game with various sequels, remakes and spin-offs, looking back at four decades of alien-shooting shenanigans.

Currently, only six titles have been revealed for the collection: Space Invaders (1978), Space Invaders Part II, Super Space Invaders '91, Space Invaders DX, Space Invaders Extreme and the first ever home release of 1980's Space Cyclone. More titles will be announced in the future. A literal blast from the past.

Space Invaders: Invincible Collection is coming to Nintendo Switch in 2020.
