Developer Dispatch Games has just announced the release date for their upcoming remake of popular '80s Japanese arcade game Penguin Wars
. The remake was first announced in November 2017
If you weren't old enough or lucky enough to be hanging out in Japanese arcades in the 1980s, allow us to tell you a bit about the game. Penguin Wars
is a ball game where the goal is to get all ten balls on the playing field onto your opponent's side. Although penguins are historically thought of as peaceful creatures, this is not the case in-game, and it's perfectly acceptable to use dirty tricks like hitting your opponent with a ball to stun them, giving you a brief advantage.
The remake will boast a story mode, local and online play, a remixed soundtrack and a physical release at retail. Penguin Wars
launches for Xbox One on May 15th.
We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the Penguin Wars achievements.
