Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced that the long-running and oftentimes slightly less-than-popular arcade, combat-driving game Spy Hunter, will be revived for both Nintendo and Sony's handhelds this fall.
Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment commented in the press release, saying...
"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."
Great news. There's also a new teaser trailer to give you a brief glimpse of what you can expect from this mobile rendition of a classic Midway reboot, including the iconic Interceptor going from land to sea to offroad and using all sorts of high-tech spy gadgets to bring bad guys to justice. Check it out below.
Some of you might be thinking to yourselves, "A lot of this sounds awfully familiar". Well, if you frequented Cinema Blend on a regular basis the Spy Hunter name might ring like a tune you've heard before because at one point when Midway had gone kaput and its properties picked up by Warner Bros., film corp., they were planning on making a full-featured movie starring The Rock. Since then two things have happened: The Rock became a movie star and no one cares that there was a Spy Hunter movie in the works.
Out of that whole fiasco a piss-poor game was released on home-consoles (also starring The Rock) called Spyhunter: Nowhere to Run but it too has long been forgotten amongst less than stellar review scores.
On the plus side, this new version for the 3DS and PS Vita sets a new benchmark for the franchise because it's been long enough for everyone to have forgotten about Spy Hunter and yet still get excited about a reboot, which you can expect to see on store shelves this fall.
