The popular classic Xbox game Voodoo Vince is going to be redesigned and make a comeback not only for Xbox One but for a PC too. This was announced by the creator of the game Clayton Kauzlaric, on October 5.
The game was first introduced 13 years ago for the original Xbox, but the ones with Xbox 360 had never been able to play it since the game wasn’t compatible. According to Kauzlaric, that is because “engine used some convoluted custom code that made Vince ineligible for backward compatibility”.
He wanted to produce an updated version of the game, so he assembled his team and started working. The game will go under the name Voodoo Vince: Remastered and it will come out with the improved graphics while running at 1080p and 60 FPS. Moreover, it will offer support for controller rumble and widescreen visuals.
However, nothing will change in terms of gameplay, so those developments are more on a technical level. Kauzlaric wanted to retain the original game. He said: “The gameplay is mostly untouched, though. That was important to me. Vince moves, animates, and controls exactly like he did in 2003. You can just see a lot more detail in his world when he moves through our twisted version of New Orleans and the Bayou.”
Voodoo Vince: Remastered will be available for PC and Xbox one in the beginning of 2017. Meanwhile, check out the announcement trailer.
