Galaga Chronicles: Revolution Age
A “fully immersive, interactive” animated series based on the classic Namco space shoot ’em up Galaga is in development at Nutty Entertainment and Meow Wolf studios. Deadline reports the anime-inspired series “will bridge the animated content from the series with physical exhibitions, merchandise, and live media” — including a game show titled Score Wars, made in cooperation with the Galaga World Championship in Santa Fe, New Mexico. According to Meow Wolf CEO Vince Kadlubek:
Meow Wolf’s work with The Nuttery to evolve classic ’80s arcade magic into 21st-century vision and experience is huge news for gamers old and new. There’s been a lot of exciting productions in this area in recent years, but Galaga Chronicles will set a new standard.
