Spy Hunter returns for handhelds today

The Interceptor rides again on 3DS and PS Vita.

Maybe getting a little lost in today’s deluge of blockbuster titles is the reboot of the classic Spy Hunter franchise from Warner Brothers Interactive and developer TT Fusion. The combat racer is available now on the PS Vita and the 3DS.

First seen in arcades (remember those?) waaaaaay back in 1983, the high-tech Interceptor supercar is once again on the move and taking down terrorists around the world.

The Interceptor seamlessly transforms from supercar to off-road assault vehicle to speed boat, allowing players to select which path to follow in the game’s branching mission tracks.  Players can also customize and upgrade the Interceptor’s many weapons and high tech gadgets throughout the course of the game. And for the first time, the Agent will have additional support in the form of an unmanned aerial support drone, allowing players to plan their destruction when assaulting enemy agent strongholds. Spy Hunter also features thrilling crash choreography and a camera system that follows the action in slow motion to let players savor the destruction they created.

One nice little audio nugget to share about the game too is that Grammy Award nominated composer Ryan Shore has done the soundtrack honors. Eighteen original tracks including a very cool re-done version of the classic Peter Gunn theme (one of my personal favorite pieces of music).  You can grab that separately for your listening pleasure today on iTunes, Amazon MP3, and GameStop.
