WWII Shoot-Em Up “USAAF Mustang” Now Available for PS4, Switch via the Arcade Archives

Game publisher Hamster has announced that USAAF Mustang, the 2D horizontal scrolling shoot-em-up arcade game, is now available on PS4 and Nintendo Switch as part of the digital Arcade Archives series.

Originally released in arcades by UPL in 1990 and ported to the SEGA Mega Drive as Fire Mustang in 1991, USAAF Mustang has never received an official release in western regions until now.

In USAAF Mustang, players pilot the titular aircraft in a World War II setting. In addition to the regular attacks and power-ups, USAAF Mustang features a unique “Strike Forcer” attack, which makes your plane temporarily invincible and allowing players to blast away at enemy squadrons fearlessly.

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.

Arcade Archives USAAF Mustang 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.
