E3 2008: Galaga Legions Impressions

Classic arcade shooter Galaga to get a face lift and Xbox Live Arcade rebirth.


Retro is in. At its E3 2008 press conference, Microsoft today announced that much-loved arcade sci-fi shooter Galaga is getting a makeover and will be coming exclusively to Xbox Live Arcade this year.

Pac-Man CE developer Namco Bandai is behind the reinvention, and from the short amount of gameplay shown off at the event, it appears to be just as frantic as gamers have come to expect from the title. It also appears to feature some similar artistic flourishes to the recently released Space Invaders Extreme.

No price or launch time frame was given for the game's release.
