The nightmare returns: Epyx, Last Ninja resurrected

updated 12:45 pm EDT, Fri August 18, 2006

Epyx games resurrected

"Epyx" is a name that should inspire equal measures of terror and nostalgia in a gamer. Releasing most of their games in the 80's, the company produced a series of hits (Impossible Mission, Summer Games, etc.) that were as famous for their joystick-smashing difficulty as they were for their capacity to please. Now System 3 has announced acquisition of the Epyx back catalogue, which will result in remakes of some of the most popular Epyx titles. Impossible Mission will come to the DS and PSP in January, while May will see the arrival of California Games for the same systems. Both games will eventually show up on the Wii. On a related note, System 3 is also remaking the non-Epyx (though just as frustrating) Last Ninja trilogy for portable release in April.
