Rumor: 'Mr Driller' Confirmed For Live Arcade
Rumors come and go all the time and the latest XBLA rumor is that ‘Mr. Driller’ is headed to the arcade. Gamefront.de is reporting that Namco confirmed the existence of Mr. Driller Online in a recent issue of its magazine, Side BN. The game will feature online modes and single player modes as usual. I’m not familiar with Gamefront.de or Side BN, so I have to file this as a rumor for now.
Mr. Driller puts the player in the role of a character who drills down through blocks, having to keep his air supply from running out while avoiding being crushed by falling blocks. The game has seen life on numerous systems and was popular in arcades for a time. If the plot sounds familiar, it’s because the game is actually a spin-off of Dig Dug. Considering Dig Dug is already on the arcade, I’m not really all that excited about this title making it.
