Super Turrican is video game in the Turrican series for the SNES released in 1993.[1] Super Turrican was also released on the Virtual Console in Europe and Australia on February 29, 2008, and in North America on March 3, 2008.

Description[edit]

Super Turrican was developed by Factor 5 and published by Seika. It plays similarly to Mega Turrican (also developed by Factor 5) and shares a similar visual style. The game has a different set of levels, however, and features a freeze beam in place of the original lightning whip. The game only features 4 worlds and ends with the H. R. Giger inspired alien boss, despite a representation of 'the machine', similar to that featured in Mega Turrican, appearing in the prologue.

Super Turrican: Director's Cut[edit]

A previously unreleased uncut version of the game, titled "Super Turrican: Director's Cut," was included with the Analogue Super Nt console.[2] Previously, this uncut version was considered for release on the Nintendo Wii's Virtual Console, but was rejected by Nintendo due to not being previously released on consoles.[3]
