I can't find the issue itself anymore, but I do have this screencap of the part where they stated that https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/756857256666071091/758468323259711558/unknown.png?width=249&height=676

An interview with Factor 5 in one issue of EDGE stated that they wanted to port T1 and T2 themselves, but Rainbow Arts gave the license to Accolade instead

Rather awful, with no proper NTSC mode, lame music, and the player takes four times as much damage for some reason
The Nate  - 21.10.2021 - 00:46
Yeah, that's one of the ports outsourced to The Code Monkeys (they also did the TG-16 and Game Boy ports)

Factor 5 Interview
Julian Eggebrecht again mentioned Turrican in an Interview with gameplayer:

We are going back to the roots as well as stepping into 3D. With PlayStation Network and Virtual Console on the Wii there are many ways to get back into the retro aspect. At the same time there will be a big 3D newly envisioned ‘Turrican’ that hopefully the fans of the original can and will embrace as well as new fans.

I´m still sceptical if it will result in more then Thornado, but let´s wait and see.

Thanks to Alexander Wilke for the tip!
Poke Interview
Planet Freeplay had an interview with Poke53280 about Hurrican, read it here.

Interview with Factor 5 about Turrican
Gerald, Webmaster of the fantastic Thalion Source found an old Interview with Factor 5 about Turrican, while viewing his old VHS-Tapes. It´s from the 1990´s series "Telewischen" and was aired on "ORB".

Since he was so kind to send it to me, it´s now available at the bonusfiles!

Thanks to Gerald for the DVD and Robert for hosting the File!

Download, Play, Love! (I don´t need to say more, do I?)
Turrican at the Games Convention 2006
Better late then never: I just dug out some pictures from the Games Convention 2006 in Leipzig, where I saw an impressive Retro-Gaming-Stand from Magnussoft, with a large Turrican-Poster. See the pictures here.

Lionheart Remake
There is a complete Lionheart (see SETA) Remake available for free at http://b3dgs.free.fr/, it only requires a short Forum-Registration.
New CD by Chris Huelsbeck!
As Chris Huelsbeck stated in an Interview with 4players.de, he will try to release a new CD until the Games Convention (23.08.2007).

This would be the first album for about ten years, and the demotrack at 4players.de sounds quite fresh and promising (look for "Preview aus dem HCD9-Album")!

The Album will not contain any game-music-remixes, partly out of copyright-reasons, expect it to remind of the "good old days", but to be more electronical then the last Albums, which were more orchestral.
Factor 5 News
In an Interview with Gamasutra, Julian Eggebrecht of Factor 5 mentioned that Factor 5 ist thinking about doing a new Turrican game:

"...I was looking at Metroid Prime's reinventing of a franchise that had been out there for quite awhile, and we're facing the same thing with Turrican.

There's aspects of the old games where people will feel betrayed if we don't transform them into the next generation. On the other hand, there's other stuff which is simply cheesy, let's face it. I don't think gamers will accept those things anymore. It's a fine line to balance."

Do you think this time there´s a real chance they might to a Turrican-alike game, or will it be just another Thornado? And will it still be Turrican without "the cheesy stuff" or Manfred Trenz?

Diskuss it at the Forum.

Factor 5 and PS3
"What we are thinking about is basically with the PS3 is going back to our old Turrican games, and basically, finally doing something like that but in 3D."

Lets see if they finally do something like this, or if it will be a second Thornado.
Thanks to Alexander Wilke for the hint!
