'Spy Hunter' rebooted on handhelds

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita owners will be able to play a reboot of the 1983 arcade game 'Spy Hunter', set to be released October 2012. (Aug. 14, 2012)

In the 1980s, arcades across the country were the place to be for gamers.

Those wooden decalled cabinets emanating light onto widened eyes are images still embedded in my mind. One game many will remember was the popular "Spy Hunter". Although many arcade rooms have closed their doors, the digital highways offer more adventure for gamers reprising their role of "The Agent".

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today released the first gameplay trailer for "Spy Hunter," a reboot of the legendary combat driving series.

Players will be asked to take down a global terrorist organization set on world domination. The Interceptor is ready for even the most difficult missions as it is able to seamlessly transform from supercar to off-road assault vehicle to speed boat and is equipped with new tech gadgets and advanced weaponry.

Developed for PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS by TT Fusion, "Spy Hunter" will be available this October and can be pre-ordered for $39.99.
