E3 2006: Galaga Anniversary Edition
Details on Namco's tribute to a classic
In celebration of the 25th anniversary of Galaga, Namco Networks and Sprint have announced the launch of an anniversary edition of the mobile game. This special version, offered exclusively to Sprint subscribers with capable wireless phones, includes the option to start the game with Dual Fighters.
The 25th anniversary edition maintains the same alien-fighting space action of the original, but with a twist. Through the Game Lobby from Sprint, which is powered by Motricity, the micro-payment technology allows players to pay 25 cents for one play of the new Galaga Dual Fighter mode. With this new feature, the player is given two ships at once to fight the aliens with double the normal firepower.
The anniversary edition of Galaga including the new Dual Fighter feature is available on the game deck of capable Sprint wireless phones.
