Taito’s “Sea Fighter Poseidon” Joins the Arcade Archives on PS4, Nintendo Switch
Game publisher Hamster has announced that Sea Fighter Poseidon, the classic underwater action arcade game, is now available on PS4 and Nintendo Switch as part of the digital Arcade Archives series.
Originally released by Taito in 1984, Sea Fighter Poseidon has only previously been available to play at home via a Japan-only release on PS2.
In Sea Fighter Poseidon, players battle against enemy divers and battleships to save your captured friends. If your player’s water scooter runs out of fuel, it explodes (because of course it does), but you can snag extra fuel from defeated enemies.
Like other Arcade Archives titles, players can post their high scores to the online leaderboards and change various game settings to match their own personal skill levels and taste. It is also worth noting that this version of Sea Fighter Poseidon was built using the Japanese ROM.
Arcade Archives Sea Fighter Poseidon is available today for $7.99 via PSN and the Nintendo Switch eShop. You can check out some screenshots below, or visit the official Hamster website here for additional info.
