The long-lost classic “Clockwork Aquaria” is just a few days old, here’s a new gameplay trailer

Clockwork Aquaria is a Westone arcade game that was thought to have been lost for nearly 30 years, and it’s only a few days before it’s worth the release. To celebrate, publisher ININGames shared a new gameplay trailer.

As you may remember, Clockwork Aquaria is an arcade title that was presumed to have been lost for a long time until last year when Strictly Limited announced that it was able to find the source code for the game. Originally developed in 1992 by Ryuichi Nishizawa, known for his Wonder Boy series, it was never released. Now that I have the source code, I’m heading to Switch.

The game will be released in Europe on November 30th on both Switch and PS4, and then on December 14th in North America. “Clockwork Aquaria is a wonderful 2D art that pixel artists have put their heart and soul into,” says Ryuichi Nishizawa, Westone’s chief publisher and co-founder. “I would like to express my sincere respect and gratitude to those who have worked hard to get it back.”

Clockwork Aquario expresses imaginatively created levels with beautiful and colorful pixel graphics. Easy to pick up, addictive side-scrolling action and intuitive controls allow you to instantly immerse yourself in action when faced with many bad guys! Choose your favorite character and use Huck Londo, Elle Moon, or the giant robot Gush to conquer different enemies and unique bosses. Alone or with your favorite Player 2 in co-op mode! The clockwork Aquaria, complemented by the amazing soundtrack by Weston legend Shin-ichi Sakamoto, is well worth the wait.
