It's the reboot you never knew you wanted.

Spy Hunter, a reboot of the classic combat driving series, has been announced for a release on 3DS later this fall.

The new title is announced on the eve of the franchise's 30th anniversary, and it builds upon the gameplay of the original with new customization and playing options. One example lies in being able to outfit the Interceptor with custom weaponry and gadgets, which can then be taken into gameplay on any of the new branching tracks.

Moreover, there will now be additional support for the player in the form of an "unmanned aerial support drone," letting players plan their assault against enemy agent strongholds.

BURBANK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announces Spy Hunter, a reboot of the legendary combat driving series, specially developed for PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS by TT Fusion. The game will be available this fall.

“Gamers now have more choice in the transformation and customization with greater hand controls, brilliant graphics and enhanced action cameras.”On the eve of the franchise’s 30th anniversary since the original Spy Hunter was released to arcades in 1983, the new Spy Hunter races forward on its most thrilling and dangerous ride yet. The player once again takes on the role of the “Agent,” the driver of the high-tech G-6155 Interceptor supercar, armed extensively with advanced weaponry, and ready to take on a global terrorist organization set on world domination.

“Spy Hunter’s classic gameplay has been upgraded to give PlayStation Vita and 3DS players a new, adrenaline-charged experience,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “Gamers now have more choice in the transformation and customization with greater hand controls, brilliant graphics and enhanced action cameras.”

The Interceptor seamlessly transforms from supercar to off-road assault vehicle to speed boat, allowing players to go where they like within the game’s branching mission tracks. Players can choose to outfit and upgrade the Interceptor’s many weapons and high tech gadgets as they like throughout the course of the game. And for the first time, the Agent will have additional support in the form of an unmanned aerial support drone, allowing players to plan their destruction when assaulting enemy agent strongholds. Spy Hunter also features thrilling crash choreography and a camera system that follows the action in slow motion to let players savor the destruction they created.

I be more interested in the original.

No Saliva. not buying.

This has a chance to be a very fun shoot'em up of sorts. I was hoping the art style would be more comical since the car has some ridiculous transformations. Still, the screen shots look fine.

But how much of a chance?  It would be awesome if it were fun...Criterion would do a good job.  TT Fusion?
