James Pond: Codename Robocod set for Wii U remake
Having destroyed Acme Oil Co., aquatic agent James Pond returns to active duty as he prepares to track his evil nemesis Dr. Maybe to the North Pole in an effort to recover stolen toys.
System 3 have announced their intent to remake the Amiga and SEGA Mega Drive classic, reimagined for release across Wii U and Nintendo 3DS in early 2014. Built from the ground up for each console, the developer promises graphical and audio fidelity that will see agent Pond tackle his foes like never before.
“I’m a huge fan of retro gaming, but to bring a game back and deliver an updated vision isn’t easy. With James Pond: Codename Robocod, we’ve got all of the right ingredients to satisfy the needs of retro fans, and today’s gamer,” explains System 3 CEO Mark Cale.
“We’re ecstatic to be bringing yet another hero back to life, and we’re looking forward to sharing more about James Pond in the coming months.”
James Pond: Codename Robocod will be available in early 2014 across Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.
