Retro-Bit Publishing Assault Suits Valken for SNES - Standard Edition - Super Nintendo - New

$ 59.99

This item is only available for in-store pickup and cannot be shipped. Anticipated release date is Q1 2024 (Jan - Mar)

Assault Suits Valken was released on December 18, 1992 on the Super Famicom in Japan with further ports released in 1993 as Cybernator in North America and PAL regions for the Super NES®. Cybernator would censor various portions of the original story. The producer was Toshiro Tsuchida who would go on create the Front Mission series after leaving Masaya Games.

The plot would center on Jake Brain, a soldier who was drafted into the Pacific States’ Marine Corp. He pilots the ASS-017A Federation Assault Suit and is only interested in being a soldier - not bothering with politics or patriotism. Nonetheless, his platoon is constantly tasked to engage the Federation across the Earth and moon, facing off some of the strongest mechs. The game has two endings - good and bad. The game was widely praised in both Japanese and Western publications with many posthumous reviewers claiming it to be one of the best on the console of all time.

With the depletion of fossil fuels in the 2050s, unease within the population has morphed into anger and conflict. Territorial skirmishes continued to boil until 2101 when United Pacific States and Federation forces began constructing massive artillery bases, intergalactic frigates, and heavy armor mechanized suits to use in this war that had engulfed the Earth and its moon. Jake Brain boards his ASS-117A assault suit and flies into this conflict that has erupted to make as much of a difference as one soldier can across 7 immersive stages with 4 types of upgradeable weapons.

The Standard Edition Includes:
  • The Japanese version of Assault Suits Valken officially localized to English
  • Bronze-shielded 16-bit cartridge
  • Numbered deluxe magnetic hard-cover cartridge packaging
  • Full-colored instruction manual
