An Arcade Classic is Making a Comeback


Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is rebooting the legendary combat driving series,  Spy Hunter. It was 30 years ago Spy Hunter entered the arcades and now fans of the classic game will be able to get their hands on the game again when it returns on the PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS in the fall.  *Note: If 30 is considered a classic than more than half of the gamers around are classics and/or vintage.  

Gamers new to the title won't be disapointed with Spy Hunter when they take on the role of the "Agent," the driver of the high-tech G-6155 Interceptor supercar. The super car fully loaded with the advanced weaponry you'll need to take on an international terrorist organization hellbent on world domination - aren't they all?  

The Interceptor [think Batmobile or Knight Rider] will transform from car to off-road assault vehicle to speed boat seemlessly which allows players to go almost anywhere. Players will have multiple upgrades for the Interceptor's weapons and gadgets throughout the course of the game. A nex-gen addition comes in the form of additional support from an unmanned aerial support drone. Taking down enemy bases with total annihilation will make defeat so much better.  In a recent announcement I also learned Spy Hunter will feature amazing crash choreography and a "camera system that follows the action in slow motion to let players savor the destruction they created."     

"Spy Hunter's classic gameplay has been upgraded to give PlayStation Vita and 3DS players a new, adrenaline-charged experience. Gamers now have more choice in the transformation and customization with greater hand controls, brilliant graphics and enhanced action cameras."  -Samantha Ryan, SVP of Production and Development for Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment
