"Taito deal sees arcade classics resurrected"
Hello Folks, here is a article I took from a magizne called "Retro Gamer" (puplished by Live Publishing) and I think you'll like it...
Empire Strikes Back
Tatio deal sees arcade classic resurrected
Empire is to publish a collection of taito's coin-op hits on PS2, Xbox and PC. Over 30 Classic games are to be includedin the pacl, with titles like Space Invaders. Bubble Bobble, Rainbow Islands and Operation Wolf topping the bill.
It's hardly a suprise that Tatio are dusting off their back catalogue considering Midway and Activision have done very well from their recent anthologies. And is was reported back in issue 8 (current mag issue is 10) that atrai and namco are to follow suite and release similar colections within the next few months. But at present not much else is known about this collection.
We're are hoping that, as well as the games confrimed Tatio will inculde the following...
* Chase HQ
* New Zeland Story
* Double Dragon (I'm personaly hopeing for 1 & 2, not 3 because it pants!)
* Rastan Saga
* Super Space Invaders
We are also hoping that Operation Wolf comes with light gun support.
No Firm release date comfirmed yet, but we expect it to be around Easter time next year. Of course we'll let you know in the up comming months.
If I find out more on this I'll let you guy in on it. I'm quite glad I got bored and brought this mag a launch time at work now heh.
well what do you guy think? you exicted?
