Spy Hunter is back, bringing a less-vague release date and first gameplay trailer for the classic property’s portable reboot.

Warner Bros. announced the reboot in May. for a northern autumn release, but used gamescom as an excuse to lock it into October – on 3DS and Vita – and give us a look at some gameplay as per the trailer below.

Spy Hunter has players take on the tole of a mysterious character known only as The Agent, equipped with a pretty amazing vehicle known as the Interceptor. In 1983 this resulted in a clever take on the vertical shooter, while in 2001 – well, actually, maybe the less said about that the better.
