War of the Worlds Coming to XBLA and PSN

on June 2, 2011 2:00 PM

Other Ocean Interactive has revealed today that they’re working on an adaptation of The War of the Worlds for XBLA and something called the “PSN”. If that name sounds familiar, they were responsible for Dark Void Zero as well as┬áthe wonderful XBLA port of Symphony of the Night. Thankfully the game is based off of the classic H.G. Wells novel rather than the “Tom Cruise yells at aliens” version. Interestingly the game will be a 2D platformer which seems like an odd choice, but makes sense once you think about it.

More information about the game will be released at E3 next week, and will be available on XBLA and PSN sometime this summer.
