Warner Bros. Interactive today announced a reboot of the popular franchise “Spy Hunter” developed specifically for the PlayStation Vita and the Nintendo 3DS.
Announced just as the franchise is about to hit its 30th anniversary since its release into Arcade’s way back in 1983. The new Spy Hunter game is set to have players take on the role of “Agent”, the driver of the supercar, which is, chocked full of weaponry and gadgets as you take on a global terrorist organisation.
“Spy Hunter’s classic gameplay has been upgraded to give PlayStation Vita and 3DS players a new, adrenaline-charged experience,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “Gamers now have more choice in the transformation and customization with greater hand controls, brilliant graphics and enhanced action cameras.”
As many players will remember, the Interceptor car will still be able to transform from supercar to off-road assault vehicle to a speedboat all in the blink of an eye. The game will have many branching mission tracks, upgrades for the interceptors weapons and gadgets and the option of an aerial support drone to help the Agent out.
Finally Spy Hunter will also feature what the company call “thrilling crash choreography and a camera system that follows the action in slow motion to let players savour the destruction they created” similar to what we see in Burnout and other racing titles.
Spy Hunter is due for release on the PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS in the Autumn. You can check out the launch trailer below:
