There is now a Gleam contest for a Nintendo Switch code here.

PC Engine Game Cyber Citizen Shockman for Nintendo Switch – Giveaway

Ratalaika Games and Shinyuden are set to release Cyber Citizen Shockman. It is an iconic game previously released on PC Engine in Japan, but never before released in the West. The failure of the Turbografx 16 did not help there.

The game is launching on  PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Microsoft Xbox One,  Xbox Series X/S and Nintendo Switch on May 19,  2023, this retro arcade action platformer starring two characters (boy and girl), with a number of improvements, captures the excitement and appeal that made it a genre favorite.

Background

Cyber Citizen Shockman is the story of two Japanese school kids named Tasuke and Kyapiko, who are in fact androids built by a mad scientist known only as Doc, who built Tasuke and Kyapiko with the ability to morph into armoured superheroes known as Shockman. Their plight is to battle the evil forces of Dark Skull.  Doc’s first attempt at a cybernetic organism who went rogue and established a gang of goons called the Skull Force. The Skull Force is trying to take over the city and have captured civilians in various locations. As Shockman, you must take back the city, one building at a time, rescue the hostages, and defeat Dark Skull and his gang.

The last PC Engine game I covered on YouTube was MotorRoader MC

Modern Features

  • A plethora of upgrades to unlock
  • * Added image gallery from hand-made scans
  • * Rewind/FF functions
  • * Brand new english translation, plus old JP Original
  • * Complete EN and JP user interface!
  • * Save states
  • * CRT Filter

I have no doubt that the game will be difficult. Retro games are generally hard. The modern games are usually easy. Personally, I would like to see Nexzr get a re-release.
