Update Strictly Limited Games has shared more details of their planned physical editions for the Zero Tolerance Collection, but with an extra surprise. Pre-orders for these don’t open until 24th April at 3pm / 6pm EDT / 11pm BST / Midnight CET
First, let’s take a look at what you’ll get if you
Original story Technopop’s classic arena shooter Zero Tolerance will be coming to Switch this year — but not alone. Publisher QUByte Interactive has announced the Zero Tolerance Collection, which brings three games together in one package: Zero Tolerance, Zero Tolerance Underground, and an unlockable, previously-unreleased demo Zero Tolerance Beyond.
In the original game, Zero Tolerance is an elite squad of five members. Each member has their own unique weapon and gameplay style. After picking one of the five members, you have to infiltrate the flagship Europa-1 — which has been attacked by extra-terrestrials — to erase all evidence of this invasion.
The objective is to kill every enemy in every level to gain a password, which will allow you to progress. If your character is killed, you can no longer play as them, and must select a new character to take control; if all five characters die, it’s game over.
This modern repackaging adds a few neat quality-of-life features to the game, but the original experience is largely retained, so fans can enjoy this rerelease how they want. Here’s a list of all of the collection’s features from QUByte:
– +40 unique levels to complete
– Classic FPS action and adrenaline
– Environment completely in 3D with a 360° degree perspective
– 5 save state slots per game
– 4 screen filters (XBR, CRT, Smooth and Sharp)
– 3 screen types (Normal, Fit and Stretch)
QUByte is also partnering with Stricly Limited Games to release two limited edition physical releases of the collection. The Zero Tolerance Collection – Limited Edition, which includes a manual (just like the old days!) will be available for €29.99 / $34.99, while The Zero Tolerance Collection – Special Limited Edition comes with a soundtrack, posters, stickers, and more, and will cost €49.99 / $55.99.
We’re excited to revisit this 1994 classic later this year when the Zero Tolerance Collection launches on Switch. We don’t have an exact release date, but we’ll let you know when we do!
