- A tenth game still to be confirmed
The Collector’s Edition will be priced at €89.99, will be limited to 2,000 copies, and will contain physical collectibles (which have yet to be confirmed). The Limited Edition will cost €39.99 and be limited to 3,000 copies.
Standard physical and digital editions will also be available at other retailers and the Nintendo eShop respectively.
This is the latest Taito-themed retro compilation released in the west by ININ Games and Strictly Limited Games.
A Special Edition version of Space Invaders Forever is due for release on December 10. It features three modern takes on Space Invaders and a number of physical collectibles including a rubber keychain, an A3 poster and a notepad.
