Namco Bandai has announced Galaga Legions DX for the Windows Phone. The game was previously released in 2011 for the Xbox 360 so it’s natural that it would eventually hit the Windows Phone platform considering Microsoft’s psuh.
The game will cost $6.99 and a trial version is also available as a free download.
“Last year, Galaga Legions DX brought the classic arcade formula into the 21t century with spectacular graphics and truly intense gameplay, now we’re embarking on bringing the series to the exciting and bourgeoning Windows Phone Platform,” says, James Kucera, Head of Mobile, NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc.
“We’re excited to explore this new territory and bring the furious shooting action to a whole new set of players.”
In Galaga Legions DX, the player’s space ship is now outfitted with two special satellite guns that are always at the ship’s side and can flip between two firing modes with a gesture of the touchscreen. Both satellites will fire straight ahead in any direction the player points them in for head-on attacks, or switch to the alternate firing mode in which the satellites will mirror each other’s shots, which is ideal when the ship is surrounded in all directions. In certain stages through the game, a black hole will appear. Shooting it will capture all the Galaga aliens on-screen and have them join the player’s legion to fight with them. The Galaga legion will provide ultimate firepower, but are easily destroyed.
