Top Gun: Hard Lock Announced

Get ready to re-enter the (Archer voice) danger zone, as 505 Games announces Top Gun: Hard Lock, which will offer gamers another chance to strap in for all the dogfighting, towel-snapping action of the 1980s Tom Cruise movie. The game is expected in the spring for Windows, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3, and word is: "In development under license from Paramount Digital Entertainment, Top Gun: Hard Lock is aerial dog-fighting at jet speeds and tailgating MiGs at Mach 2, while offering a unique 'Hard lock' mode where players perform air combat maneuvers that deliver an explosively satisfying visual payoff that brings them right into the action. Featuring the legendary F-14 Tomcat fighter jet and a number of additional licensed planes and weapons, and more than enough enemy MIGs to turn into smoldering rubble, the game is carefully mixed with just enough nostalgic references to remain true to its action movie roots." And if you have the need... the need for screens, well, here are some screenshots from the game, and here is a trailer offering some gameplay. The trailer is also embedded here.
