In a stunning reveal trailer, Square Enix announced today that the beloved classic Quintet RPG Actraiser has been remade for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PC, iOS, and Android. The remake, Actraiser Renaissance, is available now for $29.99 USD.

The remake includes several updates and new features, including:

  • Remastered HD graphics and updated interfaces
  • Updated city-building segments, including a new region
  • New magic abilities in the 2D action stages
  • Modernized action controls that include dodging and upward and downward sword attacks
  • An all new real-time strategy feature called “Settlement Siege”
  • Remastered original soundtrack and 15 new music tracks, plus the ability to toggle between the original and the remastered versions
  • Auto-save and new difficulty settings

Thirty years ago, Actraiser combined 2D action platforming gameplay with city-building simulation gameplay and inspired a generation of RPG fans, and now, hopefully, Actraiser Renaissance will inspire a new generation. See the extended launch trailer and first media below:
