The Original Clock Tower Is Getting Remastered for Modern Consoles


Survival horror fans, rejoice! The Super Famicom classic, Clock Tower, is getting remastered for modern consoles.

In an LRG3 presentation event held by Limited Run Games today, the company confirmed that a remaster was in the works and development is a collaboration effort between Capcom, Sunsoft, WayForward, and Limited Run. This remaster also marks the first time the original Clock Tower game will see an official release outside of Japan, which up until this point only had fan translations.

“Starting with River City Girls Zero, we’ve been bringing these Japanese-only releases to a Western audience,” WayForward CEO and Founder Voldi Way said in the announcement video.

Clock Tower was originally released in 1995 and is not to be confused with the PlayStation 1 game Clock Tower released in 1996. The franchise only spawned four games, with the most recent release, Clock Tower 3, launching over two decades ago on the PlayStation 2, with the series remaining dormant until today’s announcement.

Clock Tower remastered will launch on PC (via Steam), PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch early next year.
