One of the best Early Arcade Games from the Japanese Arcade Era, is finally getting an Retro Inspired Reboot!
One of the earliest successful computer and arcade games is returning to PCs this September. Heiankyo Alien, developed originally by the University of Tokyo's Theoretical Science Group (TSG) is receiving a modern retro inspired reboot by MNM Software out of Tokyo Japan.
While the game did have quite a bit of success in the arcades in the early 80's, it was overshadowed by games created by major development firms such as Namco and Nintendo. But this amazing arcade game from our past still has a large cult-like following in Japan.
The current iteration of the game takes some heavy graphical cues from other retro inspired reboots such as Pac-Man Champion Edition DX. The game is currently on display at the BEEP Retro Shop in Akihabara Japan and is scheduled to make its debut on Steam in Early September.
Below, we have some nice exclusive screenshots from the developer himself, 'MickyAlbert', and you can also view a wonderful 'stream of the game' with all its retro arcade action, and in the meantime we will be following the progress of this great reboot, so stay tuned to MaxConsole for more info.
