I just saw an ad today for Alien Syndrome for the Wii & PSP. Same title as an original Nintendo NES game. I looked at the Old Artwork and it looks very similar to the ad ( Characters, Guns etc. ) I wonder if its based off the old NES game or if game designers are just running out of good names. Mike : )

It isn't recycling names...more or less recycling games...it is a remake of the old arcade...

"Alien Syndrome is instead based on the classic Sega arcade game, which later made appearances on home consoles in the late 1980s. The game will be released on the Wii and PlayStation Portable simultaneously in the summer of 2007. The action role-playing game is being developed by Totally Games, which also worked on the space-flight-combat X-Wing series for the PC."

Check the Sega Classics Collection for PS2, they did a remake of it already with Smash TV style controls.
