Atari Brings Back Yar’s Revenge, See the Launch Video
The folks at Atari have reached really deep into their bag of tricks and pulled out Yar’s Revenge for XBLA. I remember playing the original game when I was like 10 or 11. Yes, as one of my colleagues pointed out (Thanks Jeff) I’m that old. Good times. Check out the details:
In Yar’s Revenge, players 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 brings the legendary title to new artistic heights with an anime inspired art style and captivating narrative that expands upon the original story. The game also features local co-op gameplay, intense battles, and visually striking landscapes designed to appeal to both casual and hardcore gamers.
