Galaga Animated Series, Based on Classic Arcade Game, In Development

The Sweden and Los Angeles based production company Nuttery Entertainment is partnering with Bandai Namco to produce an animated series based on the 35-year-old arcade game Galaga.

The Nuttery will develop “new characters and stories” based on the original game; the series will be titled Galaga Chronicles. The project will reportedly “cut across various platforms.”

“We are incredibly honored to be able to work on such an amazing legacy property and help launch it into the animated space,” Nuttery founder and former head of animation studio Assorted Nuts, Magnus Jansson, said. “There is such a deep love for this game from fans around the world, and our team is excited make sure the next chapter in the Galaga saga is equally impressive and inspiring as its humble 8-bit beginnings.”

Bandai Namco executive officer Hirotaka Watanabe added, “While the re-imagining of the game into animation will be unique and, for the first time in Galaga’s history, story- and character-based, there is also a great respect for its history.”

The Galaga animated series hasn’t been given a release date, and the network that will house the series has yet to be revealed.
