Aurora Game Studio Resurrects Lost Super NES Title “Nightmare Busters: Rebirth”

Publisher Pix’n Love Games and developer Aurora Game Studio recently announced that Nightmare Busters: Rebirth is coming soon to PC and consoles.

Originally developed in 1994 for the Super Nintendo, Nightmare Busters is a 2-player run n’ gun (a genre that was simply called an “action game” back then) that sadly never saw the light of day. For us retro gamers who are still around these 27 years later, it will be interesting to finally get a chance to play it.

Here is the full breakdown of Nightmare Busters: Rebirth from Pix’n Love Games:

Initially developed in 1994 by Arcade Zone on Super Nintendo, Nightmare Busters would unfortunately never be released. Eager to pay homage to this enchanting arcade game, Aurora Game Studio and Pix’n Love Games partner to give life back to this creation, born to an extraordinary fate.

Packed with frantic action, Nightmare Busters: Rebirth is a 2D action title of the run n’ gun genre in the best tradition of action arcade games. The story follows Flynn and Floyd, two nightmare-hunting leprechaun brothers, through six varied and colorful environments, in their journey to thwart the plans of the diabolical Tyrant!

Under the watchful eye of some of the original creators, Nightmare Busters: Rebirth makes a point of honor to keep the foundations of the original work while enjoying the enhancements of modern gameplay and current developing tools:

• Entirely redone graphics, UI, and soundtrack.

• Traditional hand-drawn animation.

• Redone level design.

• Gradual and readjusted difficulty.

• Two-player option.

• Several new modes added. (Speedrun, Ultimate, Museum, etc.)

Currently in pre-production, Nightmare Busters: Rebirth is about to enter its production phase and promises an unforgettable and fast-paced journey in nightmare land, on PC and consoles!
