Mastertronic announced today that Speedball 2 HD – a modern reincarnation on the classic, futuristic cyberpunk sports game Speedball – will be coming on Steam and Get Games this December. In addition, Mastertronic has released a new trailer for this revamped version of Speedball that can be viewed below.
Jon Hare of Sensible Software said:
“Over the years so many of today’s Indie developers have been telling us how much our games meant to them, some asking us to bring them back on digital formats and some even begging us to be able to get involved with the development themselves. Speedball 2 HD proves that the synergy between old classic titles and modern digital formats, along with wise old heads working with fresh new talent has never been stronger.”
Mike Montgomery of Bitmap Brothers added:
“Speedball 2 HD is a faithful remake of the original futuristic cybersports game. It is as arresting and enjoyable as ever and we’ve added some cool updates to allow today’s gamers to connect with it on their favourite platforms.”
Speedball 2 HD has been developed by ‘Indie Developer of the Year’ Vivid Games and designed, directed and produced by Jon Hare and Mike Montgomery and will release on Steam and Get Games on 5th December for $9.99 / €7.99 / £6.99.
The game will feature over 330 unique players, new formations and six new arenas of frenetic future sports action.
