Galaga Legions DX is hitting Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network this week, Namco Bandai has confirmed with Eurogamer.
The Galaga Legions name might sound familiar -- it hit XBLA back in 2008. This "deluxe" version is the follow up, and looks as crazy as the original. From the trailer, it looks like there are new firing modes in the game, including the ability to shoot in multiple directions.
I've been a big fan of Namco's remakes, including Pac-Man Championship Edition and the DX follow up. This looks like a bit too much of a "bullet hell" experience for my liking, though, and I'm a big fan of the original Galaga. How's it looking to you?
Space bees are the worst. They think they're so cool, but they're really not. Fortunately, games like Galaga exist to take them down a peg or two, and Galaga Legions DX exists to take them down in the coolest way possible.
