M2 to port 4 classic Toaplan shooters to consoles including “Twin Cobra”, “Flying Shark” and “Truxton II”
Japanese game development studio Toaplan closed its doors in 1994, but M2 has announced plans to port every single Toaplan game to modern consoles. To kick off this effort, M2 confirmed that they are starting with four of Toaplan’s arcade-style shooters (currently termed shoot-em-ups… blech):
Kyuukyoku Tiger (1987, aka Twin Cobra)
Tatsujin Ou (1992, aka Truxton II)
Hishouzame (1987, aka Flying Shark)
Out Zone (1990)
Unfortunately, specific platforms and release dates were not announced. Would you prefer a full collection of these retro-arcade bad boys, or would you rather have them hit digital storefronts piecemeal? Let us know in the comments!
