Space Ace to Release on Blu-ray and HD DVD

February 4, 2008

The Fate of Earth is in your Hands as Classic Space Ace releases on High Definition this Spring

Ready your laser gun for a cutting-edge high definition gaming experience when Space Ace arrives on Blu-ray and HD DVD from Digital Leisure. The follow-up to last year’s release of Dragon’s Lair, Space Ace has been completely restored and enhanced with an all-new 5.1 surround sound mix.

From legendary animator Don Bluth (An American Tail, The Land Before Time), Space Ace allows you to play the heroic Ace who must stop the evil Commander Borf from taking over the Earth! Armed with only a laser gun, Ace must find and destroy the ‘Infanto Ray’, rescue his girlfriend Kimberly and save the Earth. All in a day’s work for a superhero, right?

Space Ace was authored in both the Blu-ray Java environment (BD-J) and in HDi with advanced interactivity for HD DVD which will allow users of both formats to enjoy a fully arcade-authentic experience.

All of the special features on the disc were shot natively in 1080p including all-new interviews with creators Don Bluth, Gary Goldman and Rick Dyer, and for the first time a full length visual commentary of the game.

The Blu-ray disc includes the following special features:

  • Interviews with game creators Don Bluth, Gary Goldman & Rick Dyer

  • Picture in Picture video commentary from the creators

  • Viewing Mode Option: Widescreen (16:9) or Anamorphic (4:3) video playback

  • Watch Mode – Watch Don Bluth’s stunning animation without playing

  • Subtitled: English, French, Spanish, Italian and German

The HD DVD includes the following special features:

  • “Leisure Online” – A unique online player experience that includes “Head 2 Head” gaming - an incredible first for the HD DVD format.

  • Interviews with game creators Don Bluth, Gary Goldman & Rick Dyer

  • Picture in Picture video commentary from the creators

  • Viewing Mode Option: Widescreen (16:9) or Anamorphic (4:3) video playback

  • Watch Mode – Watch Don Bluth’s stunning animation without playing

  • Subtitled: English, French, Spanish, Italian and German

Space Ace Blu-ray and HD DVD will be available April 8th at many software and movie retailers as well as online at www.digitalleisure.com.  Digital Leisure plans to follow up the release of Dragon’s Lair and Space Ace with Dragon's Lair II: Time Warp later this year.
