Zzap! 64 is returning with an annual later this year

Kickstarter campaign is live.

Following the successful return of Crash magazine last year, an all-new Zzap! 64 is being planned for release this coming autumn, with several of the key staff from the classic publication returning.

The Zzap! 64 annual is being worked on by the same team that brought Crash back to life, and they've already enlisted the help of artist Oli Frey, editor Roger Kean and writers Paul Rand, Robin Hogg and - of course - Jaz Rignall. The Kickstarter went live on Friday morning, and has already smashed through its target and first stretch goal.

If you want to find out a little bit more about the golden age of games magazines, Graeme Mason did a wonderful history of Crash magazine early last year - and at this year's Rezzed, John Linneman grilled Rich Leadbetter for some insight into what went into some of the legendary games magazines of the 90s, which you can see in the video above.
