The rail shooter has only been available on Apple‘s subscription service since it was released in June 2022.
The PS5 and Switch versions of the game will get a physical release in Japan (in both standard and limited editions), while the other versions will be digital-only.
It’s not yet known if the game will get a physical release when it comes to the west.
Directed and produced by Yu Suzuki (Shenmue, Out Run, After Burner, Virtua Racing, Virtua Fighter), Air Twister is similar in appearance to his 1985 Sega arcade game Space Harrier.
Players control Princess Arch as she tries to defeat the invaders who are attempting to destroy her home planet.
Although Air Twister was designed with touchscreen controls in mind, the Apple Arcade version allows players to use a controller instead, meaning nothing should have to be compromised in the jump to consoles and PC.
Discussing the genesis of the game in an interview with Axios last year, Suzuki said: “When I went to the Apple headquarters, we had a talk – and we actually had a really good talk about what if I was to do a really straight-forward game you want to play over and over again, like in old-school arcades.”
