Space Invaders Extreme, Arkanoid DS Coming to North America on June 17

By Aaron Linde, Apr 02, 2008 12:01pm PDT Taito announced today that two revivals of classic arcade games, Space Invaders Extreme (NDS, PSP) and Arkanoid DS, will be released at North America retailers on June 17.

Celebrating the 30th anniversary of Space Invaders, Space Invaders Extreme reimagines the classic game in a faster, more intense fashion, blending classic shooter gameplay with weapon upgrades, enemy variant types, boss battles and other twists. The game also includes online multiplayer and leaderboards.

Arkanoid DS features the classic brick-smashing gameplay expanded with three game modes, two or four person multiplayer, and unlockable levels and backgrounds. Unfortunately, the Arkanoid paddle—a classic-style dial controller which fits into the system's GBA slot—is currently not slated for a North American release.

Arkanoid DS and both the PSP and DS versions of Space Invaders Extreme will be priced at $19.99 when they hit shelves this coming June.
