The fact that Cannon Dancer (AKA Osman) is getting a domestic port for the first time ever is one of the best pieces of retro gaming news we've had this year – and we can finally reveal its price and release date, thanks to Nintendo.

The game's page on Nintendo's site has been updated (thanks, @gosokkyu) with a release date of January 19th 2023. We'd imagine the same date will apply to the PlayStation and Xbox releases. The game will cost $29.99 / €29,99 / £24.99.

Originally released in 1996, Cannon Dancer is the brainchild of Kouichi Yotsui, who also designed Strider during his time at Capcom. The game shares many similarities with that title but was not a success in arcades and wasn't ported to any domestic system at the time.

ININ Games has worked with Mitchell Cop to create this reissue, which is also getting a physical version.
