Xenon 2 Megablast Coming to Atari Jaguar!

xenon2jag01Xenon 2 by the legendary Bitmap Brothers has always been one of my all time favourite Commodore Amiga Shmups. I’m sure many of you have played this game and remember the excellent soundtrack from Bomb the Bass. Just in case you have been living in a cardboard box for the last 26 years, the game is an overhead shooter released way back in 1989 by Image Works/Mirrorsoft (Cinemaware/USA). With excellent graphics and unique gameplay, this game was an instant hit back in the late eighties and we think it still stands the test of time :)

Now here’s the interesting News. Reboot Internet Software have been given the go ahead by ‘The Bitmap Brothers’ (Mike Montgommery) to remake this game for the Atari Jaguar! Yes we didn’t see this coming either, but what fantastic news eh? :)
xenon2jag02Due to licensing issues unfortunately the original Bomb the Bass soundtrack will not be included but instead music will be created with the Roland TR-505! Let’s hope something pretty amazing can be made up to match. Only time will tell!
