Choplifter getting HD redux

— 10:51 AM on March 29, 2011

If you were playing video games in the 80s, you probably remember Choplifter. The helicopter-based rescue game first appeared on the Apple II before migrating to various Atari consoles, the Commodore 64, and the original Nintendo, among other systems. Retro revivals seem to be all the rage these days, so it's only fitting that Choplifter is getting an HD redux. Behold:

Well, that looks quite a bit better than the original. According to GameSpot, InXile Entertainment filed a trademark for Choplifter HD way back in 2009, so it's been working on the game for quite a while. The final version is set to be released in August for the PC and PlayStation 3. Thanks to Joystiq for the tip.
