After being dead in the water for nearly three decades, Clockwork Aquario is going to see the light of day in Q2 2021! ININ Games will be releasing it digitally on Nintendo Switch and PS4, with more platforms to be announced. This arcade game was the last to be developed by Westone Bit Entertainment back in 1993, but never saw completion.

However, the title is in luck, as Strictly Limited Games has stepped in to stop it being lost forever. While ININ Games is handling the digital releases for Switch and PS4, Strictly Limited Games has made limited physical editions of the game available for pre-order on their website.

 

The above trailer shows the three main characters of Clockwork Aquario, and the first gameplay footage of the game. Our protagonists are “Huck Londo, the daring hero, Elle Moon, the brave adventuress and Gush, the warmhearted giant robot.”

Development has been lead by Ryuichi Nishizawa, the founder and game creator of Wonder Boy. The game follows a boy, girl, and robot in the near future as they crush a plan to take over the world. It has vibrant, hand-drawn pixel art, and tons of two player couch co-op action.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
