We’re moving away from Namco’s backlog for a bit this week in the Arcade Archives line-up, as the next game coming to the series is 1981 arcade shooter Space Seeker. the game will be dropping on the eShop tomorrow — 16th June — for the usual price of $7.99 / €6.99 / £6.29.
This game is known for having multiple different perspectives across its six areas. Much of the game is played as a side-scrolling shooter, but you have to navigate many areas — known as ‘bases’ — from a top-down view, and if you attack a fleet here, you swap to a first-person cockpit perspective.
Space Seeker is also part of the Taito Milestones collection which launched in the West back in April earlier this year, so it’ll be good to have the game available digitally and separately, especially as we were a bit disappointed by the selection:
