Cinemaware had a successful Kickstarter campaign for Wings! Remastered Edition back in December of last year, and now they’ve announced a publishing agreement for the game. Kalypso Media is teaming up with the developer to release the game on PC, Mac, iOS, and Android. The title is a remake of the Amiga classic that has players engaging in aerial combat. Wings! was a little before my time, but I like the idea of bringing some of these classic titles back with some modern polish. Check out the first screenshots below. A specific release date has not yet been announced just yet, but the press release below says it should be out this year.

Ridgwood, NJ – Aug 8, 2014 – Experience the rush and glory of a WW1 Allied fighter pilot, as Cinemaware’s Amiga classic returns as Wings! Remastered Edition. Published by Kalypso Media, Wings! Remastered Edition takes the original gameplay of the flight combat hit Wings! and recreates it faithfully in stunning HD and with a completely re-recorded orchestral soundtrack. Featuring exciting and accessible arcade-action, Wings! Remastered Edition challenges players to enter intense dogfights, take on daring strafing & bombing missions and survive to the end of the First Great War.

Colonel Farrah, spokesperson for Cinemaware, commented, “Listen up hotshots! It is with great pride that Cinemaware and the 56th Squadron announce this publishing partnership with Kalypso Media. This will help us in our crucial war efforts to bring the experience of Wings! to a much wider audience out there and enlist new pilots for our future campaigns – and that can only be a good thing! Dismissed!”

Wings! Remastered Edition will be available in 2014 on PC, Mac, iOS, and Android. For more information please visit www.kalypsomedia.com.
