Telenet

We've got some exciting news for fans of the shoot 'em up genre, with Edia announcing a themed collection for Switch. It's aiming to release at some point after June 2023 in Japan.

The Telenet Shooting Collection will feature four ports of classic games originally released and developed by Telenet Japan. This includes a mix of PC Engine and Genesis titles. Here's the rundown (via Gematsu):

  • Granada (November 1990, Genesis)
  • Avenger (1990, PC Engine)
  • Gaiares (1990, Genesis)
  • Psychic Storm (1992, PC Engine)

The catch here is that this collection is being launched through a crowdfunding campaign - similar to the previous Edia and Telenet collections. The campaign is seeking 3 million yen (about $21,000 USD) to back the development and marketing of the Switch release. There's been no mention of a physical or local release at this stage.

Keep an eye out for development updates and maybe even some video footage in the near future. In the meantime, you can visit the official website to see some screenshots and learn more about the history of each game.
