Microids has announced Arkanoid – Eternal Battle, a fully modernised version of the 1986 Taito classic by French studio Pastagames whose previous work includes Rayman Legends and Pix the Cat.
When the mother ship Arkanoid comes under attack, the small spacecraft Vaus manages to escape but ends up warped into another dimension. Wandering in an inter-dimensional labyrinth, Vaus must destroy blocks called spacewalls in order to defeat Doh, creator of the maze.
Arkanoid – Eternal Battle features different solo and multiplayer modes that will be unveiled at a later date. Classic elements from the franchise will definitely make a comeback as well as new effects, bonuses and features guaranteed to take veteran players by surprise.
Director of Taito Corporation, Masakazu Suzuki, said: “We are very pleased that Microids, a company we trust, will be releasing a modern version of a popular title that Taito released 35 years ago. We’re confident that both old fans and new players will be very satisfied with the game.”
Arkanoid – Eternal Battle is slated for a 2022 release although it has not yet been revealed on which platforms.
