The latest in my ongoing Space Invaders Extreme watch: as it turns out, of course, the earlier retail rumors were correct, and the latest issue of Japanese weekly games mag Famitsu confirms that Taito is bringing a new DS version of the retro-futurist remake to Japan in just two months time.
Just what changes are in the cards is less clear: no online reports have been filed from the mag or the developer (which should change by early next week), and IGN’s translation only mentions “new gameplay systems [and] a deeper score attack system,” along with the return of WiFi multiplayer.
But, via import house NCSX we learn that one of those new systems reportedly is a “Bingo System” (naturally), where “a grid is lit up during the course of a stage as invaders are shot. To win at Bingo, key spots on the grid must light up horizontally, vertically, or diagonally.”
