Actraiser Renaissance was just one of a dizzying slate of Nintendo Switch announcements last week, but its composer hopes it will be the start of a SNES renaissance of its own.
The new game, which was announced at the September Nintendo Direct and released on PC, PS4, Switch, Android, and iOS shortly afterward, is a remake and reboot of the 1990 SNES game Actraiser. Composer Yuzo Koshiro created the soundtrack for both the original Actraiser and Renaissance, and he revealed on his personal Twitter account that the latter game has had “great sales,” which he hopes may lead to the revival of more games from the same studio.
You guy’s much love for Quintet exceeds my expectation. They would be so happy to know it. I wish to return to the time and tell them that all of their works make fans happy. I hadn’t seen them for a while after Actraiser, but I knew they dealt with creating games diligently.September 29, 2021
