Square Enix and TAITO, in collaboration with Google, have launched Space Invaders: World Defense, a new augmented reality (AR) game that incorporates Google’s ARCore Geospatial API and the latest AR technology. The game is now available on Google Play and the App Store.
The game invites players to protect Earth by fighting together with players from across the world. In the game, players can earn points by exploring their neighborhoods and defeating the Invaders they encounter. They can unlock special power-ups, participate in area-specific rankings, and share gameplay images and AR selfies on their social channels.
The game is powered by Google’s ARCore Geospatial API, which designs an engaging model onscreen that blends AR and 3D from the nearby environment, including buildings, bridges, and other architectural elements around the player. The game also adapts to the player’s real-world location, time, and local weather.
