Last summer, we learned that Clockwork Aquario — a canceled arcade game developed by Westone Bit Entertainment — was finally going to see the light of day.
Publishers Strictly Limited Games and ININ Games, announced Clockwork Aquario to be released in 2020, but now the publishers have said it will release in Q2 2021 in both digital and physical forms for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
The announcement accompanied the game’s first teaser trailer (see above), which introduces the game’s three main characters in Huck Londo, Elle Moon and the giant robot Gush.
Clockwork Aquario was the last arcade title ever developed by Westone Bit Entertainment — of Wonder Boy/Monster World fame — in 1993, but was never finished. The game was thought to be lost in time, but Strictly Limited Games was able to save Clockwork Aquario from being lost forever, the press release read.
