Featuring Google’s Latest AR and Geospatial Technology

Los Angeles (July 18, 2023) – Today, Square Enix® and TAITO, in collaboration with Google, launched Space Invaders: World Defense which incorporates the Streetscape Geometry* API, a new feature of Google’s ARCore Geospatial API and the latest augmented reality (AR) technology on Google Play™ and the App Store®. Recognized by Guinness World Records in 2020 as the Longest running video game series and celebrating its 45th anniversary this year, SPACE INVADERS is now available as a completely new AR game.
About Space Invaders: World Defense
45 years after its initial launch, SPACE INVADERS have struck again! Now is the time to fight together with players from across the world to protect Earth. Experience an immersive AR shooter that blends the classic game with a new dimension as you soar through an augmented reality world and take on the Invaders emerging from the shadows and around every corner.
Players will earn points by exploring their neighborhoods and defeating the Invaders they encounter. Players can unlock special power-ups, participate in area-specific rankings, and share gameplay images and AR selfies on their social channels.

Space Invaders: World Defense is powered by Google’s ARCore Geospatial API which instantly designs an engaging model onscreen that blends AR and 3D from the nearby environment, including buildings, bridges, and other architectural elements around the player. It also adapts to the layer’s real-world location, time, and local weather for immersive gameplay.

*Streetscape Geometry: It is possible to acquire 3D model data of buildings within a 100m radius of the user's current location. This function allows AR objects to be hidden and visible (i.e. occlusion expression), to reflect on buildings in real space, and to attach AR objects to specific buildings, enabling the development of highly immersive AR content that blends into real space.
