It's the first of a complete programme of brand extension for the cult classic arcade game.
The Nuttery Entertainment has teamed up with Meow Wolf to develop Galaga Chronicles, an animated series based on Bandai Namco’s cult classic game.
Meow Wolf will work with The Nuttery on the reimagining of the Galaga brand and look to extend the multimedia platform by bridging animated content, physical exhibitions, merchandise and live media.
Together, the pair will also develop a new, annual gaming competition series called Score Wars that will launch with Galaga Wolrd Championship on March 29th and run through to April 1st, 2018.
“Meow Wolf’s work with The Nuttery to evolve classic 80s arcade magic into 21st century vision and experience is huge news for gamers old and new,” said Vince Kadlubek, Meow Wolf CEO.
“There’s been a lot of exciting productions in this area in recent years, but Galaga Chronicles will se a new standard.”
The first instalment in the brand extension will be an anime-inspired series tentatively titled Galaga Chronicles Revolution Age.
“We couldn’t be more excited to have this level of creativity and craftsmanship on board our space adventure,” said Magnus Jansson, CEO of The Nuttery Entertainment.
“Meow Wolf brings an extra dimension to the development and production. They are breaking new ground with every project they take on.
