Posted by Corbie Dillard
It would seem that Square-Enix isn't focusing all of their attention on RPGs these days with their recent announcement that they'll be publishing the European release of Space Invaders Get Even. Square Enix Ltd. has just issued a press release regarding the upcoming European release of their Space Invaders Get Even title on the WiiWare service.
Square Enix Ltd., the publisher of Square Enix® interactive entertainment products in Europe and other PAL territories, today announces the TAITO® game SPACE INVADERS GET EVEN™ will be available, to download exclusively from the Nintendo WiiWare™ service, across Europe in October 2008.
30 years after the original SPACE INVADERS® ignited an entire entertainment medium and founded a gaming generation; players can now prepare for role reversal in this brand new action-invasion, where the fate of the Earth is in their alien hands.
Players will control mysterious UFOs and give orders to hordes of Space Invader underlings in an attempt to overrun Earth and battle Earthlings' attacking human weaponry.
John Yamamoto, president and chief executive officer of Square Enix Ltd. comments, "SPACE INVADERS EXTREME launched earlier this year recaptured the hearts of many gamers, and launched the SPACE INVADERS series to a new generation of younger fans. SPACE INVADERS GET EVEN promises to be a great follow-up release for this the 30th anniversary of the series."
