Normally, video games based off of a movie come out in close proximity to the movie. The fact that Starfighter which holds its inspiration from the 1984 film The Last Starfighter is coming out just
FINALLY!!! for crying loud. lol
I dig that movie and always wondered why there really wasn't a game in the arcades. Time to go home and watch the dvd.
Grafx were better than Star Wars at the time.
They didn't have 3D graphics in the arcades back then. They would have had to use vector graphics or sprites. That wouldn't look like the movie at all.
Brings me back!
I wonder if I get a high score on it if aliens really will recruit me for an intergalactic war. WOW you can definately see how old some of us are here hahaha. It actually did come out for NES though except it wasn't the game in the movie, it was just based on the movie. So a movie game about a game that's not in the aforementioned game.
uh oh ive gone crosseyed...
