The games will be made available on a single platform for the first time including the entire Super “Star Wars” series for the SNES and “Star Wars” for the NES. Adventure game classics like “Grim Fandango” and titles from the “Monkey Island” series will also be coming to the platform. Starting today, subscribers to the Antstream service will be able to play the following classic Super “Star Wars” titles: 

  • “Super Star Wars” (SNES, 1992);

  • “Super Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back” (SNES, 1993); and

  • Super Star Wars: Return of the Jedi (SNES, 1994).   

All the games available via Antstream Arcade’s cloud-based streaming service are available using any 4G connection or better and are playable on almost any device for the cost of a single flat monthly subscription.

“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,” says Steve Cottam, chief executive officer, Antstream. “The fact [that they] 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.” 

This latest news follows recent announcements of collaborations with retro gaming giants Taito, Atari and Bandai-Namco, making Antstream Arcade’s library the world's largest collection of retro games.
