G-Mode Corp announced it will bring its G-Mode Archives titles to PCs via Steam starting in Spring 2021.

G-Mode Corp’s first game in the series, Flyhight Cloudia, already has its own Steam page. [Thanks, Game Watch Impress!]

G-Mode Corp’s PC announcement commemorates one year since the company started releasing its G-Mode Archives games on the Nintendo Switch. The first game coming to Steam is Flyhight Cloudia, an old-school JRPG with a heavy emphasis on its story. However, as with the Nintendo eShop release, the title will not include an English language option.

The company’s goal with the G-Mode Archives project is to faithfully recreate Japanese feature phone games from the early 2000s on modern hardware. The project is an example of video game preservation from the earliest era of digital game distribution. As a fan of classic games, Bayonetta Director Hideki Kamiya even praised the companies efforts. G-Mode Corp released 33 titles in its Archives series, with more on the way. The company even launched the original Hero Must Die. game on the Nintendo Switch.

G-Mode Archives Flyhight Cloudia will release on PCs via Steam in Spring 2021.
