Bitmap Bureau’s twin-stick shooter retro-style Xeno Crisis is getting ported to the GameCube and Nintendo 64. This 2019 release made its way to most modern consoles at the time including the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.
Originally starting off as a Kickstarter, it reached nearly 1,300 backers and is now expanding its reach to retro consoles. Announcing the Xeno Crisis GameCube and N64 launch on April Fool’s Day, Bitmap ensured that people knew this was not a prank. Included in their tweet was also a release of Final Vendetta’s OST as a double vinyl set.
There’s ability to select the region version for Xeno Crisis (both version are region-free, however, the N64 version includes some restrictions) and an instruction manual included. Xeno Crisis is available to pre-order for £55.00 on N64 and £30.00 on GameCube with shipping beginning in late April.
I am a media and pop culture enthusiast and love Nintendo and indie games, particularly Zelda and Stardew Valley. When I’m not gaming you’ll find me writing, creating fanart, and playing music covers of my favourite games!
