Gamescom 2022 is in full swing now, and while the show is primarily focused on modern games, there's a sizeable 'retro' area at the event – and, as you can imagine, we wasted no time whatsoever getting stuck in.

Highlights include a special display dedicated to the Turrican series, some rare Amiga systems, a bank of arcades and – perhaps most exciting of all – an eight-player link-up of the arcade exclusive Daytona 2.

Have a gander at the shots below and let us know if you're at Gamescom this year, too!
