The upcoming release of Sturmwind for Dreamcast has seen a lot of attention lately. Beside the main announcement on the computer show „neues“ on the German TV station, 3sat, there was also another segment on the show „on3-südwild“. In which they showed further unseen game play. In the mean time the Sturmwind discussions online are increasing.
No wonder so many fans got in contact with redspotgames and Duranik. This has been a reason for the current „fan“ beta tests. One of the most desired has been a collectors version of Sturmwind. With this realization redspotgames has spent the past few months working on just that.
Content with the result both redspotgames and Duranik are announcing a Limited Edition of Sturmwind for Dreamcast today. It bears the name „Windstärke 12“ („storm force 12“) and consists of following:
* Sturmwind Game
* Sturmwind Soundtrack: “The Final Score”
* Full Color Sturmwind 3D Printed Model 1:72
* Full Color Tactical Guide Booklet
All of that comes packaged in a special magnet box. „The Final Score“ contains both unused music and remixes of the original Sturmwind soundtrack. The „Tactical Guide“ shows the best strategies to beat the enemies in the game, full color and illustrated. The spaceship model is also in full color and 1:72 scale.
The Sturmwind Limited Edition „Windstärke 12“ is only available in a limited quantity. There will be no reproduction. Mass orders are prohibited. When its gone, it‘s gone!
It’s price will be 69,95 EUR (~ US $96.60 / ~ £60.50 GBP) and therefore is much cheaper and more affordable as similar collectors editions. It can be ordered directly at www.redspotgames.com/shop – shipping worldwide.
Due to this announcement and the rich feedback of our beta testers the release has been pushed back to 22-12-11. This concerns both the standard and Limited Edition.
