Collector's Edition Of Upcoming Putty Squad Remake To Include Long Lost Amiga Version On Floppy Disk

Putty-Squad-AmigaEarlier this year System 3 announced that they would be releasing a remake of their classic Super Nintendo title Putty Squad on modern platforms. With the release date drawing near, it has just been revealed that the collector's edition of the game is due to feature something special - the original unreleased Amiga version on floppy disk.

To many Amiga gamers, Putty Squad is a name which draws out a lot of frustration and envy. With the game's series starting life on Commodore's platform, loyal Amiga gamers felt very much betrayed in 1994 when the anticipated sequel Putty Squad ended up a Super Nintendo exclusive. Amiga fans, however, weren't alone - Sega Mega Drive owners also missed out on this British classic too.

In a recent news article in Retro Gamer Magazine, System 3’s Mark Cale was pleased to note that he "can’t wait to see people playing this at retro shows across the country” before confirming the title's arrival on Commodore's computer nearly 20 years later.

Putty Squad is due to be released on the 29th November, however, the collector's edition is yet to be revealed, dated and priced.

also, as was mentioned on the "Commodore Amiga" Facebook group; the original (Putty/Silly Putty) consisted of 3 floppy-disks; hence if this 'unreleased version' of Putty Squad only consists of one floppy disk; it's rather questionable whether it's actually the full game, or just the demo from various cover-disks...
I am having my doubts to this, however much I'd love to have faith in System 3, since it was IMO one of the greatest company of the 80's/early 90's
