Players will discover or be reintroduced to the emblematic block breaker game in a fully modernized version. Arkanoid – Eternal Battle features different solo and multiplayer modes that will be unveiled at a later date. Classic elements from the franchise will definitely make a comeback as well as new effects, bonuses and features guaranteed to take veteran players by surprise! Arkanoid is an iconic arcade game developed by TAITO Corporation in 1986. 35 years after its release, the game has spawned numerous titles. When the mother ship Arkanoid comes under attack, the small spacecraft VAUS manages to escape but ends up warped into another dimension. Wandering in an interdimensional labyrinth, VAUS must destroy blocks called "spacewalls" in order to defeat "DOH", creator of the maze.

"For me, it was in the French city of Nice, 54 boulevard Jean Médecin, in a dark arcade called "Automat". It was full of neons and highly diverse people, from bikers to middle schoolers," said Fabien Delpiano, Founder & Owner of Pastagames. "The arcade machine was breathtaking, with its metal ball-bearing paddle, while I was just a regular fifteen-year-old trying to get on with adolescence. We immediately fell for each other, and our relationship lasted several years. We all have our own story with Arkanoid. It feels so good to come together again, after all these years."

"We are very pleased that Microids, a company we trust, will be releasing a modern version of a popular title that Taito released 35 years ago. We're confident that both old fans and new players will be very satisfied with the game," said Masakazu Suzuki, Director and Executive Officer of Taito Corporation.
