You wait 20 years then two come along at once...
Hot on the heels of the news that James Pond creator Chris Sorrell plans to launch a Kickstarter campaign for a new game in the popular early 90s platformer series, we've got an announcement of a James Pond: Codename Robocod remake for pretty much every video game platform known to man.
UK publisher System 3 plans to remake James Pond: Codename Robocod for iOS, Android, PS Vita, 3DS, Wii U, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Steam and Windows 8 (phew!) for release in early 2014.
The remake retains the cartoon graphics of the original game, but with updates visuals.
Meanwhile, today, 20th September, at 12pm, Sorrell launches his Kickstarter for a new James Pond game.
Sounds like we'll have competing Ponds. Fight!
