Last week, publisher Atari offered up its upcoming game release schedule during its quarterly financial press release. One of the games mentioned in the schedule was the previously unannounced Yars' Revenge. Today Big Download can officially reveal the first details on the title. For those of you who have a long memory this is indeed is a remake of the classic Atari sci-fi arcade game that was first released back in 1981.
This new version is the first game that's due to be released by Killspace Entertainment, a Hollywood-based studio made up of former members of Obsidian Entertainment and the now shut down Pandemic Studios. Its remake of Yars' Revenge will have a Japanese anime art style as it tells the story of a nameless Yar who was previously brainwashed by the Qotile empire. Now having broken from their control, the Yar battles back against its former masters. Look for massive aerial battles, multiple endings and local support for two player co-op.
The game is due for release in early 2011 for the PC (via digital download) as well as the Xbox 360 and PS3. Big Download will have the first interview about Yar's Revenge later today but for now you can check out the debut of the game's teaser trailer
