Digital Eclipse, a company known for remastering and compiling legacy and retro games, has recently posted a tweet that indicates it is working on something new.
The game developer has previously worked on many famous titles, most notably the 30th Anniversary collection of Street Fighter and Mega Man Legacy games collection. Digital Eclipse’s rise to fame can be attributed to its mission of remastering and emulating legacy and arcade games for various current and next-gen consoles. They recently worked on Atari 50, a tribute to Atari games on their 50th anniversary, for next-gen consoles.
Just had a big company meeting where @kobunheat gave everyone a walkthrough of our next release. When you can impress the people at the studio with decades of experience, you've got something special.
We are excited to share all the info a little later this year! pic.twitter.com/gcKpjcI29Z

In the tweet, Digital Eclipse shared its enthusiasm after a successful meeting, claiming its Editorial Director provided the team with a walkthrough for their new title. The developer also hinted that the meeting was attended by people other than the company’s employees, pointing towards this being a presentation for a new client.
The company stated that the clients, including studio officials with decades-long experience, were impressed with the work. This hints towards the possibility of the company working with a legacy developer to compile and revamp its arcade or retro games. The post concludes by stating that Digital Eclipse is excited to share more information about the upcoming project, and fans can expect the announcement this year.
Digital Eclipse is dedicated to bringing the old memories of fuzzy and glitchy arcade games to modern players and preserving the history of the video game industry in the process. Apart from games, they also focus on making documentaries that shed light on the early years of video games. Filled with interactive elements, small games, and loads of interviews by game developers and designers, their documentaries are a fun treat for video game players and makers alike. The company evidently has a far-reaching presence in the industry, having worked with stalwarts of early video games, such as Nintendo, Atari, Disney, PlayStation, and GameBoy.
