The official Twitter account of publisher Dispatch Games announced on Friday that it will release the PlayStation 4 version of City Connection's remake of the Penguin Wars (Pengin-kun Gira Gira Wars) arcade game in the West on January 29. The PS4 version was originally scheduled to ship on August 30. The company launched the game's Nintendo Switch version on August 15 as planned.
Dispatch Games also teased that it is working on a new title.
In the original Penguin Wars game, two players attempted to send balls as fast as possible to each other's side in an attempt to win the game by either sending 10 balls to their opponent's side, or having more balls on the opponent's side when time runs out. Players are able to temporarily stun their opponent by hitting them with a ball. Players could also choose between characters with different capabilities. The remake adds new graphics, music, and additional game modes.
City Connection released the remake in Japan on the Nintendo Switch only in September 2017. The original game debuted at arcades in Japan in 1985, and also received a Famicom (NES) version in the same year.
