Mr. Driller has been dormant for quite some time, but Bandai Namco is reviving the beloved early-aughts character with Mr. Driller DrillLand — a remake of the 2002 GameCube entry. Today, the game’s opening animation showcased a bit of the cast of characters in the game — showing off the franchise’s drill-filled fun and a sense of whimsey. The franchise can best be described as a modernization of Dig Dug — so much so that some entries had that game’s character act as the father to Mr. Driller’s. It started life on the GBA and found of success on the go — making it a natural fit on the Switch.
The series will also hit the PC with DrillLand, and both versions will land on June 25.
