LOS ANGELES, California, December 15, 2017 – Arcade legend Galaga grows its animated brand extension with a new creative team, a Live Galaga World Championship and future immersive entertainment plans.
The Nuttery Entertainment teams up with creative powerhouse Meow Wolf to develop Galaga Chronicles — an animated series based on BANDAI NAMCO’s cult classic game. Meow Wolf will collaborate with The Nuttery on the reimagining of the legacy Galaga brand and extend the wide-reaching multimedia platform by bridging animated content, physical exhibitions, merchandise, live media, and a new, annual gaming competition series, “Score Wars” that will launch with Galaga World Championship on March 29 – April 1, 2018.
This multifaceted, interactive and immersive approach to story and community distinguishes Santa Fe, New Mexico-based Meow Wolf and their Meow Wolf Entertainment production company as a most proven unique creative partner.
“Meow Wolf’s work with The Nuttery to evolve classic 80s arcade magic into 21st century vision and experience is huge news for gamers old and new,” said Vince Kadlubek, Meow Wolf CEO. “There’s been a lot of exciting productions in this area in recent years, but Galaga Chronicles will set a new standard.”
The Nuttery Entertainment, a digital entertainment studio based in Sweden and Los Angeles, first announced Galaga Chronicles this summer at the San Diego Comic Con. The first installment in the brand extension will be an anime-inspired series tentatively titled Galaga Chronicles | Revolution Age.
“We couldn’t be more excited to have this level of creativity and craftsmanship on board our space adventure. Meow Wolf brings an extra dimension to the development and production. They are breaking new ground with every project they take on. We are very happy to partner up and bring an amazing origin story for Galaga to the anime sci-fi world.” – Magnus Jansson, CEO of The Nuttery Entertainment.
