Night Slashers, a classic arcade game originally developed by DATA EAST in 1994, still stands as one of the best titles in the beat 'em up genre to this day! The gameplay consists of seven distinct stages, each subdivided into multiple sections. You can advance by navigating from left to right within each stage, combating waves of enemies to progress.

Attempting to proceed further without eliminating foes halts the screen’s scroll until all the threats are dealt with. Upon reaching the end of each level, a climactic showdown with a formidable boss awaits. Achieve victory over the boss to advance.

Night Slashers: Remake features

  • Expanded hero roster: Choose from a unique roster of heroes to assemble your team and battle hordes of zombies as a team of up to four players.

  • Enhanced Controls and Combat Mechanics: Take full control of your character with improved combat mechanics. Execute combos, aerial attacks, and special moves, making the gameplay engaging and satisfying.

  • Upgraded Visual Effects: From blood splatters to dynamic lighting, witness the horror unfold with updated visual effects that heighten the intensity of the gameplay.

  • Sound and Music Perfection: Enjoy a high-quality haunting soundtrack. Choose between the classic OST to feed your nostalgia or the newly-arranged music for a modern-day experience.
