Elevator Action Will Be Right Back With New PS3 Game

image Back in June, Siliconera discovered Square Enix was making a new Elevator Action game. We’re about to find out what Elevator Action Deluxe is since Square Enix Japan opened a teaser site for the title.


The webpage uses the graphics from the 1983 arcade game and on Square Enix’s RSS feed says a masterpiece from the arcade game Golden Age on PSN. Perhaps this is a hint that the original Elevator Action is at least part of the package. Another interesting tidbit is Elevator Action Deluxe appears to be a PlayStation 3 exclusive since it only has PS3 and PlayStation Network logos. For comparison sake, the multi-platform downloadable game Lara and the Guardian of Light includes PlayStation and Xbox branding. This confirms the PlayStation 3 only rating on Australia’s Classification Board.

    I do love me some Elevator Action.

      I do too, but I’ll leave the mom jokes out of this :P.

    Is it too much to hope for Elevator Action Returns(EA2) with scanlines and filter options like we get in SF3OE or Raiden Fighters Aces? 

    I am trying to contain my excitement for this seeing as it could still wind up being some bad remix of the original with cheap polygon graphics.  Please don’t let me down Squenitaidos!!!

      Couldn’t have said it any better.  A great port of Elevator Action Returns being any part of this project would make me sooooo happy.
