Namco Bandai are teaming up with Swedish-US company The Nuttery Entertainment to produce an animated show based on the classic 1981 shmup, Galaga.
Galaga Chronicles will feature new characters and adventures based around the classic arcade game, and will lead a host of new and upcoming Galaga-themed projects.
“We are incredibly honored to be able to work on such an amazing legacy property,” says Nuttery founder Magnus Jansson. “Our team is excited make sure the next chapter in the Galaga saga is equally impressive and inspiring as its humble 8-bit beginnings.”
I have no idea what made them decide 2017 was the time to strike whilst the iron was hot on this property, but it will be interesting to see what series is crafted out of the beloved space-shooter.
