Atari have fired over a volley of new screens for Yars’ Revenge, a remake of the 1981 Atari 2600 classic of the same name. In case you’re not old enough to recall the soft, scintillating caress of the Atari 2600 (ed: snap out of it, Lee), Yars’ Revenge features the titular Yar, a human female in mechanised power armor.
Now sporting a snazzy anime artistic style, Yar’s Revenge will feature “local co-op gameplay, multiple endings, intense battles, and visually striking landscapes designed to appeal to both casual and hardcore gamers.”
From the press release:
In Yars’, players will take on the role of a nameless Yar, who has been brainwashed by the evil Qotile empire to do their bidding.
After being shot down and rescued by the ancient and mysterious Bar Yargler, she sets off on a ferociously focused mission, to seek revenge on her former master and his deadly squad of assassins. The bio-technological nightmare of the Qotile home world provides stunning backdrops for players to fly through in aerial combat with their enemy.
Yars’ Revenge is due out on PSN, Xbox LIVE and PC this spring.
