Still slated for release this summer, theTop Gun game reveals all the dirty details.
Top Gun is being developed by DoubleSix with the aid of the film’s scriptwriter Jack Epps Jr. It’s described as a “free-flying air combat shooter,” and being very arcade focused, as “players defy the laws of gravity as they dodge enemy planes using inverts, dives and spins.”
The game will have all-new dialogue and storyline written by Epps, but there’s no words on who will do the voice acting. Hardly the original cast? In either way it does feature the classic compositions “Danger Zone” and the “Top Gun” anthem, they could hardly have done the game without those…
