Tōkidenshō Angel Eyes is coming to Switch and PS4 via Arcade Archives on October 20th. Not only is Angel Eyes coming to home consoles, but that it is finally coming home. Announced on Sept 10th 2020, it has been over two years with no update as to where the release is. This, alongside the similarly-updatedless Complete Edition of Daraku Tenshi, was considered to be possibly dead in the water by some given the radio silence after its initial announcement. But now that we have a date to expect it on; what is Tōkidenshō Angel Eyes and why are people so excited to see a home console port of it show up?
The fighting game genre is no stranger to emulation. Many of the most popular ways to play classic fighting games involves simply booting up an emulator. However emulation is an arduous development process that relies on the availability of the computing power to deliver the performance demands of the original hardware purely in software. Where does that leave titles that push the cutting edge of console technology? Dead or Alive is one such series and thanks to Xbox we have a great way to play in 2021.
