Andro Dunos 2 physical release coming to Switch

It’s time to bring out your good old spaceship fighter in Andro Dunos 2!

Through a partnership between VGNYsoft and PixelHeart, one classic arcade game returns to modern platforms. Originally released in 1992, the sequel to side scrolling shoot-’em-up Andro Dunos is coming to Nintendo Switch. Andro Dunos 2 releases physically on the Nintendo Switch in 2022.

What the sequel brings

In the story of Andro Dunos 2, 28 years have passed since Yellow Cherry and Red Fox deployed for the Earth Defense. Sent to stop an invasion from an unknown alien race, the threat may be rearing its ugly head once more. 52 light years away on the edge of our galaxy, the aliens will stop at nothing to conquer.

Unfortunately for the Earth Defense, Yellow Cherry and Red Fox became relics of the past. Long forgotten, having seen better days, and damaged from past war, only one Yellow Cherry ship could be salvaged thanks to parts from Red Fox. If you’re up for the task of saving the earth, then there’s one thing left to do…

“Dust off the finest Earth Defense ships ever made and send the alien scum packing.”

Game features:

  • Flexible and efficient gameplay
  • Recover power ups by killing enemies
  • Music composed by Allister Brimble (Alien Breed, Body Blows, Project-X, Colonization, Driver or Superfrog).

The game itself includes a physical cartridge and a certificate of authenticity. The VGNYsoft release receives an additional exclusive stellar interface flier and stellar interface sticker.

When does Andro Dunos 2 release?

No official date has been given for Andro Dunos 2, but it will release sometime in Q2 2022. Until then, it may be time to dust off those arcade fingers and get ready to blast some aliens. As always, it’s great to see more retro titles returning to modern platforms. With releases such as Ganryu 2 and the Morphcat Games Collection 1, 2022 stands as an exciting year for retro classics.
