New Riddick for 360, PS3

Upgraded visuals and one new chapter for next-gen remake, reports US mag Game Informer

According to the chaps at US Game Informer mag, a remake of Starbreeze studios' excellent Xbox shooter Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay is headed to PS3 and Xbox 360.

Apparently the remake will receive an obligatory graphical boost, along with one additional chapter over the Xbox original.

Considering the cult status of the original this will no-doubt come as fantastic news to anyone who had the pleasure of playing Riddick. It perhaps also explains why it's yet to appear on the Xbox 360's backward compatibility list.
