Revamped game offers a lot of eye candy

For 800 Xbox Live Points you can take a trip to the past with a blast from the future when Galaga Legions launches today for the Xbox 360 in the Xbox Live Marketplace.

The eagerly awaited revamped version of the classic arcade game, Galaga, has been brought back to life from the same team that did the Pacman Championship Edition remake for the Xbox 360.

With a lot of pizzazz and enticing eye candy, the remake of this classic Namco shooter that first hit arcades in 1981 is one of the most remembered arcade games. The new updated version draws on the classic version for inspiration, but the remake is a rocket ride with stunning visuals and Xbox achievements to earn.

While it will not be easy, the updated version of Galaga should prove to be quite popular with the older Xbox 360 set. The game supports 720p and is set up to accommodate one player. We expect it to be available for download starting later today.
