iiRcade Inc., a premium home arcade console that lets gamers of all ages play their favorite retro and modern games in true arcade style, is pleased to announce that SPACE INVADERS, officially licensed by TAITO, will be available in the iiRcade game store on Friday, August 5, 2022 for $7.99.
SPACE INVADERS hit arcades in 1978 and became an instant worldwide phenomenon from its debut. The objective is to defeat wave after wave of descending enemy invaders with a horizontally moving laser to earn as many points as possible.
“We know that many members of our community are patiently waiting for SPACE INVADERS to be released and we are happy to announce that it will launch this Friday in our Game Store,” said Jong Shin, Founder and CEO of iiRcade. “We are very excited to bring SPACE INVADERS to iiRcade and would like to thank TAITO for making this possible.”
SPACE INVADERS popularized a more interactive style of gameplay, with the Invaders responding to player-controlled movement of the cannon and was the first video game to popularize the concept of achieving a high score which could also be recorded on the machine.
The iiRcade version of SPACE INVADERS will include:
- Three different visual modes: black and white, classic and color.
- Custom bezel artwork
- Lunar backdrop like in classic arcade machine
The new iiRcade Gold Edition, the latest addition to iiRcade’s lineup of high-end arcade consoles, is available now for $999, with four versions to choose from: Dead Cells, Dragon’s Lair, SPACE INVADERS and Black Edition with artwork Dual Dragon.
