Classic 90s horror beat ’em up game Night Slashers is coming soon to PlayStation, Xbox, and Switch platforms as Night Slashers: Remake. Forever Entertainment and Storm Trident plan to bring Night Slashers: Remake to PC alongside consoles as well, and several new features and improvements for the remake were revealed.
The original Night Slashers arcade game was released in 1994 by Data East, the developers of Super BurgerTime and Bad Dudes. Night Slashers features seven unique stages, which are divided into multiple sections full of horrifying creatures to defeat. Players battle these waves of enemies while navigating from left to right in each section, similar to Capcom’s iconic Final Fight arcade game. A challenging boss awaits at the end of each level, with victory allowing the player to advance to the next level.
