PS4/Vita Remaster Of Windjammers Receives Release Date And A Bunch Of ’90s-Style Merch

Windjammers, the classic Neo Geo disc-throwing game, is coming back in remastered form for PS4 and Vita, and today it got a release date. Developer DotEmu has announced that Windjammers will be available on August 29.

Alongside the release date announcement, DotEmu published a video that shows off the different playable characters in the game. There are six characters in total, and each has different strengths and weaknesses. You can watch it below.

The remaster includes several improvements over the original. It retains the classic art style, but it has received a boost in graphical fidelity. In addition, the new version includes online multiplayer, five game modes, and competitive leagues.

The remaster had a closed beta last month, and DotEmu has tweaked and changed the game based on the feedback from players. “Thanks to you, the community, we received tons of feedback regarding bugs and issues, and also the ergonomy, menus, and matchmaking system,” the developer stated in a PlayStation Blog post. “You also provided many useful ideas regarding the general gaming experience. Most importantly, your comments confirmed that we’d captured the fun, immersive experience of the original.”

DotEmu also announced today a lineup of official Windjammers merchandise. This includes ’90s-style shirts, a hat, and a lapel pin, as well as a Windjammers-branded Frisbee. You can see the items in the gallery below, and you can buy them here when they go on sale on August 29.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
