Disney has confirmed the information that appeared on ESRB´s website about a Tron XBLA game being in the making. However, not only do we get the original 1982´s Tron, but we will also be served with the sequel, Discs of Tron. The release of the games is scheduled to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Tron movie.
Both games will offer the original version and an improved and tuned version, with improved graphics and audio. Tron and Discs of Tron will also feature four multiplayer modes for versus-gameplay. Here´s an excerpt of the press release:
- In Tron, which first appeared in arcades in 1982, players must complete four increasingly challenging game types to advance through levels. Players battle tank forces, engage in treacherous light cycle combat, attack the MCP cone and fight off grid bugs to enter the I/O tower.
Discs of Tron, a follow-up 1983 arcade game, enables players to fight Sark, the defender of Master Control Program, in one-on-one battles taking place in three-dimensional futuristic arenas. Players must move between platforms while throwing energy-charged discs at Sark and deflecting oncoming discs to avoid being ”derezzed.”
The price for the games wasn´t disclosed, however, the games are scheduled for a summer release. Tron and Discs of Tron will be sold separately.
