Major Nelson has tweeted that Star Raiders will arrive on Xbox Live Arcade this week. Based on the Atari 800 title of the same name, the new version was developed by Incinerator Studios. Like the original, Star Raiders focuses on galactic navigation and dogfights. It also comes packing multiplayer modes, so space combat fans may want to keep their eyes on it.
The new version will still focus on spaceship dogfights, energy pool management, and navigation of a "galactic map," but also includes ship transformation features. Players will also be able to take part in epic space battles online in several multiplayer modes.
