2D platformer The War of the Worlds will be released on Xbox Live Arcade on 26th October. A PS3 date has yet to be confirmed.

The striking game, based on HG Wells’ legendary sci-fi novel, is developed by Other Ocean, and the story stays true to the authors creation, although there’s a new story arc, characters, locations and sub-plots.

“As a developer, we are extremely fortunate to have access to this beloved franchise,” commented Other Ocean’s Mike Mika.

“The team and I are huge fans of the original rotoscoped cinematic platformers of early PC gaming. This is a dream project for everyone on the team. Having the ability to approach the game in a completely retro way and pay homage to one of our favorite periods in gaming is more than we could ask for.”
