Video: Atari Classic Warlords Reimagined for PSN Today

Video: Atari Classic Warlords Reimagined for PSN Today 50°
125w ago - Atari Senior Director of Digital Strategy and Distribution Todd Shallbetter has announced alongside a video trailer that the classic Warlords is officially reimagined for PSN today.

To quote: Warlords, one of Atari's original and celebrated arcade titles, is launching in updated form for the PlayStation Network today!

I'm sure there are readers out there who've spent many hours in the arcades playing Warlords and other Atari games back in the 80s. With this new PSN version, we wanted to capture all the fast-paced, multiplayer fun that made the original a hit in its day.

But as you'll see, Warlords has been completely overhauled with a new identity for modern consoles, yet we really felt it important to keep it as true to the original as possible. As Nolan Bushnell used to say, Atari games are "simple to play, difficult to master." I think you'll find that to be the case with Warlords.

The core concept of the game remains the same as the original - defend your fortress while attacking others. You can play either cooperatively or competitively, defending your fort from attacks with up to three other players.

Winning requires speed and strategy,...

To quote: It's been two weeks since we released TOKYO JUNGLE and we're thrilled with the comments we've received from players. Thanks to everyone who is enjoying the game!

Today, we are releasing four additional animal characters (Crocodile, Giraffe, Kangaroo, Panda) and giving away more costumes, so please be sure to check out PlayStation Store this afternoon.

In other news, we've received many questions about TOKYO JUNGLE's premise and gameplay, so we asked Game Director Yohei Kataoka from Crispy's and Producer Masaaki Yamagiwa from Japan Studio to elaborate on the game's concept and inception.

Dais Kawaguchi, Assistant Producer: Can you please explain how you came up with the idea for TOKYO JUNGLE?

Yohei Kataoka, Game Director: The business philosophy for "Crispy's Corporation," the studio I established, is to "develop a new product that nobody has ever seen before."

However, just because it's new doesn't mean it will be well received. When I was struggling to figure out how to create something that's innovative and compelling, I came across an article of famous singer-songwriters...

Escape Plan: Director's Cut PS Vita DLC Arrives on PSN Today 50°
126w ago - Fun Bits Interactive Team Lead Chris Millar has announced today that the Escape Plan: Director's Cut PS Vita DLC is arriving on PSN today!

To quote: Escape Plan's Director's Cut DLC for PS Vita is out today, with new content for everyone!

Patch 1.04 also goes live with the new direct controls, and we're adding new visual stimulation for you costume fans.

After working on the project for over a year we decided to bring back some of our favorite level designs, and needless to say, we love a challenge!

This is why the Director's Cut pack is filled with the most devious and evil tricks that Bakuki ever conceived. Including the Slap-a-ma-tron 9001, and a butt-ton of mind-bending puzzles.

Continuing tradition, we have added four new costumes to the dressing room. Dress Lil and Laarg in a new spectrum of costumes such as Timeless and Lost Clause, with Halloweeners and I'm with Cupid unlocked by playing through the 21 Director's Cut levels.

We've also added a new poke control to allow the player to stop the selected character with the ease of a button, as well as adding the directional pad to start the character's march. Using your feedback we've done our best to get the game to be yours as much as it is ours. Let us know what you think!

Everyone...
