Antstream Arcade has announced that Star Wars Arcade and the entire Super Star Wars series for the SNES is now available as part of their library, which mean you can play Super Star Wars on PC. As per the announcement, this is the first time this has happened, and there are also classic LucasArts adventure titles like Grim Fandango and titles from the Monkey Island series that are available on their platform.
Steve Cottam, CEO of Antstream, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be bringing the retro Star Wars series to customers, taking us one step closer to delivering thousands of iconic games to the global gaming community through the power of streaming technology. The fact will be able to play Star Wars for the SNES on their laptop, Grim Fandango on their TV or Day of the Tentacle is a massive win for both existing and new audiences.”
The Super Star Wars series for the SNES and Star Wars Arcade are now part of the 3786 titles part of the Antstream Arcade, which includes deals already made with Taito, Atari, and Bandai Namco. Apparently, it's the largest collection of retro games in the world, which may or may not be true. Regardless, with the subscription service comes challenge modes, tournaments, and international leaderboards, which could be fun for those who are into that kind of thing. It costs €9.99 a month to get Antstream Arcade, or an annual option that reduces it to €7.99/month for €95.88.
