The "most thrilling and dangerous ride yet."

Warner Bros. is bringing the classic Spy Hunter series to PlayStation Vita and 3DS in a new reboot scheduled to launch this fall. TT Fusion, developer of the LEGO series games (LEGO Harry Potter, LEGO Star Wars, etc.) is behind the project.

The new Spy Hunter promises to be the “most thrilling and dangerous ride yet.” Players take on the role of “Agent,” driver of the high-tech G-6155 Interceptor supercar, tasked with taking out a global terrorist organization using the vehicle’s high-tech weaponry.

Players will be able to upgrade and customize the Interceptor with new weapons and gadgets as they progress. The car will transform from supercar to offroad assault vehicle to boat “seamlessly.” An unmanned aerial drone will join Agent for the first time, allowing players to plan their attacks accordingly. The game also features a slow motion camera system.

“Spy Hunter’s classic gameplay has been upgraded to give PlayStation Vita and 3DS players a new, adrenaline-charged experience,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “Gamers now have more choice in the transformation and customization with greater hand controls, brilliant graphics and enhanced action cameras.”

    Trailer would be better if it was narrated by Jeremy Clarkson without the dubstep.

  • Malcolm Reynolds

    Yes. Now we get to see a multiplat game on both that may finally prove the vast inferiority of the 3DS hardware compared to the Vita.

    Heres hoping they develop with the Vita as lead platform.
