Microids is pleased to announce that Operation Wolf Returns: First Mission is now available in physical format for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch in stores in our territory. This game is a reinterpretation of the classic cult game released, developed, and published by TAITO in 1987. Operation Wolf left a lasting impression on a whole generation of players as one of the first games to introduce a horizontal scrolling rail shooter.
Developed by the French studio Virtuallyz Gaming, Operation Wolf Returns: First Mission stays true to the spirit of the original game while offering a new artistic direction that transports players to the world of 80s action movies. The gameplay focuses on non-stop action, where players will face a new criminal organization as special agents. This organization, led by the mysterious General Viper, is involved in arms and drug trafficking and has developed a powerful weapon. Players must uncover the organization’s bases, dismantle it, destroy the weapon, and free the captive hostages in nearby camps.
The physical edition of Operation Wolf Returns: First Mission includes the game for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, or Nintendo Switch, an embroidered patch, and a sheet of stickers. This re-release of the classic game offers players the opportunity to enjoy the nostalgia of the arcade era, but with updated graphics and artistic direction.
