WOW Thames 02 1920x10801 620x348 The War of the Worlds Announced For XBLA and PSN

We’ve got a treat for fans of both classic science fiction and adventure games as Other Ocean Interactive has announced that they will be bringing The War of the Worlds to Xbox Live Arcade as well as Playstation Network this summer.

“As a developer, we are extremely fortunate to have access to this beloved franchise,” said Mike Mika, Head of Development with Other Ocean Interactive. “The team and I are huge fans of the original rotoscoped cinematic platformers of early PC gaming. This is a dream project for everyone on the team. Having the ability to approach the game in a completely retro way and pay homage to one of our favorite periods in gaming is more than we could ask for.”

The game will be coming across as a 2D action adventure in the vein of Flashback and Alone in the Dark.  We should have more information on this title throughout E3.
