In the case of Pong — one of the first video games to ever hit the market — the new iteration is called Pong Quest. This new, role-playing game goes far beyond the classic back and forth of the original title. In Pong Quest, players go on an adventure as an adorable Pong paddle to determine the fate of Pong World. Players will explore dungeons — loosely based on other classic Atari titles — and defeat evil through classic Pong-inspired battles.
The game is set to launch sometime this spring and will feature both single-player adventures and multiplayer battle modes. Pong Quest will be available for PC via Steam and for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
Check out the game’s launch trailer below for a glimpse of the paddling battling action.
