Fans will be happy to know that while the influential Amiga game of yesteryear is coming on PS3 and PS Vita in early February, it will not be just a simple re-release. This new version will feature three new level packs called Convergence, Valiance and Synergy.

The game (a top down shooter) was first released on the PC, and was met with positive reception by most critics. 'Alien Breed,' per a Gamingbolt report, "offers the opportunity for both old and new fans to experience the original survival-horror game, featuring a choice of either old-school Amiga graphics or new enhanced graphics."

Moreover, the game is also Cross-platform multiplayer and Cross-save compatible, and gamers can play ad-hoc or online from the Vita and local or online from the PS3 with others on either of the two platforms.

Check out the list features that will arrive with this version of the game below:

  • Story Mode - choose from 30 levels including three new level packs: Convergence, Valiance and Synergy.
  • Enhanced visuals or play using the original 16-bit graphics
  • Team up on either PS3 or PlayStation Vita via cross-platform play
  • Cross-Platform Continuation Play, carry on your PS3 save game progress on your PlayStation Vita, or vice versa!
  • Ad-Hoc and online co-op multiplayer for PlayStation Vita
  • Local and online co-op multiplayer for PlayStation 3
  • Leaderboards and trophies

The pricing of the game is yet to be confirmed.

'Alien Breed' was first released in 1991 by Team17 for the Commodore Amiga and later in 1993 by MicroLeague for MS-DOS. The game was based heavily, although unofficially, on the 'Aliens' movie.

For those who are unfamiliar with the game, 'Alien Breed' consists of the player or players having to find the lift down to the next level, occasionally setting the self destruct sequence to blow up the level above them.

In advanced levels, however, players are occasionally trapped in enclosed spaces with huge 'boss' aliens, redolent of the Alien Queen.
