New Elevator Action Inaction. Screens Don't Move!

Hanging out in arcades in the 1980s, I adored playing Elevator Action. And that classic title is getting reborn on the PS3 as a downloadable title.

Here's a look at the game's screens. The title, which is being developed by Square Enix, is slightly different from the original, with new weapons like machine guns and lasers. The game also features much faster elevators and rope. Because you can never have too much rope.

There's also offline multiplayer that supports up to four players. Elevator Action Deluxe hits the PSN on August 31 in Japan.

『エレベーターアクション デラックス』アーケードの名作、復活!! [ファミ通]


    Elevator Action is an all time favourite of mine, I still play it on the original gameboy. I only hope this is released on Xbox Live because I don't have a PS3.

    Now if they released the original Cannon Fodder on PS3 i'd seriously consider buying one.

    I love Elevator Action.

    There was also a fantastic modernish version released in the mid 90's for the Sega Saturn and arcades. It was really good.

    I'm glad this is going for the retro look though.

    I used to play the original in the arcade, this looks like a direct copy just in 3D.

    I hope this won't be the case as the original was slow and rigid the levels were repetetive, as a matter of fact they were almost exactly the same, the colours just changed and the difficuly went up.

    I would like to see the arcade sequel updated, it was alot more action orientated, had different buildings, boss battles.
