The original Super Famicom version of Clock Tower, the 16-bit cult classic survival horror game, is getting a Port+ edition with improved graphics and features. Clock Tower Port+ is being developed by WayForward and published by Limited Run Games for Xbox Series, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.

Clock Tower Port+: The enhanced edition of the Super Famicom horror game coming to all platforms in 2024

Originally released on Super Famicom in 1995 in Japan, Clock Tower traps players in the haunting confines of the Barrows family manor, where they’ll be pursued by Scissorman, a murderous, shears-wielding psychopath. As teenage orphan Jennifer Simpson, players will use a point-and-click interface to explore the mansion and search every disturbing corner to find items, reveal secrets, and discover ways to survive Scissorman’s assaults. Without any offensive capabilities, Jennifer must rely on her wits and resourcefulness if she has any hope of escaping with her life and earning one of the game’s multiple endings. A tense atmosphere, chilling sound effects, detailed 2D animations, and randomized elements to maximize replayability demonstrate why Clock Tower is considered a groundbreaking pioneer in the survival-horror genre.

Harnessing the power of Limited Run Games’ Carbon Engine, this new edition of Clock Tower retains the authentic gameplay, graphics, and sound of the original version while also adding modern features and enhancements. These include a new vocal theme song performed by Mary McGlynn (Silent Hill series), a new animated opening, motion-comic cutscenes before and after the game, a bonus art gallery, border artwork, save states, multiple language options, and more.

Clock Tower Port+ Features:

  • A survival-horror classic, officially translated and brought out of Japan for the first time.
  • Run, hide, and survive as you attempt to evade the psychotic Scissorman.
  • Atmospheric 2D art, detailed animations, and haunting sound effects.
  • Multiple endings and randomized gameplay elements maximize replayability (and jump scares).
  • New animated opening, motion-comic cutscenes, and vocal theme song performed by Mary McGlynn.
  • Art gallery, save states, and other modern enhancements.

Clock Tower will be published digitally in North America and Europe by WayForward, followed by a physical version that will be offered on select platforms by Limited Run Games. Further details, including information on the physical preorder window, will be announced at a later date.
