Yars' Revenge Coming to XBLA

By Michelle Balsan, 6 years ago
Continuing the tradition they seem to have started with releasing an update to Haunted House late last month, Atari revealed through its first half fiscal year report that a Yars' Revenge title is headed to the Xbox Live Arcade during the first quarter of 2011.

Yars' Revenge was originally released for the Atari 2600 in 1981 where it went on to be the best selling original title for the platform. The game has been remade several times throughout the years including a well-received Gameboy Color port in 1999. Most recently, it can be found as a downloadable title in Game Room for those curious enough to try it out.

Personally, I loved Yars' Revenge all those years ago when it came out for the 2600 and snapped it up quickly in Game Room. Hopefully its update will fair better than the critically panned Haunted House.
