Video Game publisher Mastiff announced today that they will release Space Raiders, the first true 3D sequel to Taito’s arcade classic, Space Invaders. Space Raiders was developed by Taito, the company that first unleashed hordes of unstoppable aliens way back in 1978 and is exclusively for the GameCube. Space Raiders will ship April six with a $19.99 suggested retail price.

Space Raiders features the addictive game play that made the original an instant arcade classic, along with immersive 3-D environments and incredible creatures that will have gamers on the edge of their seat. The game offers a one player Story Mode, and a one or two player Cooperative Survival Mode.

In Space Raiders players take the role of Justin, a street gang leader, Ashley, a popular fashion photographer, or Naji, a police officer. Each of them is trying to find someone they care about and must get past the seemingly invincible alien horde if they are to succeed in finding their friends.

“Space Raiders is a stellar update to a gaming classic loved by anybody over 30 who ever went to an arcade “says Masaaki Ohzuno, a manager at Taito.
