The Yars' Revenge Remake Is On Rails


We can reveal that it is an on-rails shooter because, well, that is what is revealed in the art-trailer which Atari have just released. That trailer, as is the fate of all trailers, is entombed below this post for you to watch. It talks about how the super-abstract shield-egg-fly weirdness of the original has been re-imagined as an Anime-inspired shooter, with a touch of Avatar. Yar was a fly in the original, and has "evolved" into a cute girl flying a robot in this. I know, it's as if the original game was basically irrelevant to what they are doing here.
