For the past 45 years, space invaders have been trying to enslave the world, and this time they have returned from another dimension. In Space Invaders: World Defense, players will have to defend their home planet again.

As one of Earth’s finest pilots, gamers will use their starship’s advanced technology and expert skills to travel between dimensions and protect the planet: “The future of the Earth is in your hands”.

Space Invaders: World Defense “turn your city into a virtual playground” and will offer “customized gameplay based on your location, nearby points of interest, time and weather”.

Space Invaders: World Defense is based on the ARCore augmented reality platform and the tool presented at Google I / O Geospatial Creator (for linking content to coordinates on the world map).

How exactly Space Invaders: World Defense will be played is not entirely clear from the announcement trailer. On the screenshot from official site the starship confronts the invaders in some kind of virtual trench, and not against the backdrop of a real location.

Space Invaders: World Defense is being created by Google and the Japanese studio Taito, who released the original Space Invaders back in 1978. The release is expected next summer.
