Arcade Archives SURPRISE ATTACK Is Finally Here

Get ready for yet another retro release. Hamster Corporation is delighted to announce that Arcade Archives SURPRISE ATTACK is launching today on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. It is the latest addition to their Arcade Archives series, which faithfully reproduces many classic masterpieces.


SURPRISE ATTACK is an action game released back in 1990 by Konami. An international terrorist group called “BLACK DAWN” threatens the universe. Your mission is to recover the space station, shuttle, and moon base from these terrorist forces.

Every stage is cleared when you recover all the bombs in it and reach the final location. After every stage boss battle, there is a bonus quiz. If you answer correctly in this quiz, you will receive bonus points. The game also supports two players providing an awesome gaming experience.

As usual, the game will be available digitally on the PlayStation store and Nintendo eShop for $7.99. And just like any other game in the series, it uses the Japanese ROM for the main part. The options menu and manual are available in Japanese, English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.

Players will get to change various game settings such as the difficulty. They can even reproduce the atmosphere of an arcade display at any time. There is even a high-score leaderboard as well for everyone to compete with one another.

To build up the hype, make sure to watch the official trailer by Hamster Corporation to get a glimpse of the game.
