Recently, Take 2 Games acquired the Lemmings rights from Psygnosis. And they turned things around. If you visit their website and go into either Europe or "Rest of the World", enter the Games section, you'll see Lemmings Revolution listed! And much better, when you click on it, you'll find out that it's due for release in April!!!

Here's what we know about the game!

Title: Lemmings Revolution
Released: April 2000
Language: English, French, German, Italian & Spanish
Developer: Psygnosis
Information I Received Several Months Ago from a Well-Informed Source at Psygnosis:

Note: this information is several months old and could have changed, but it's quite likely that if these exact features aren't in Lemmings Revolution, features based on them will be

The full game would have featured (in fact does feature, we're only 3 months from completion):

- 20 themed backdrops (featured in the demo was the underground cavern)
- 100 levels (boy, are there some great ones)
- Over 20 new traps
- A level editor bundled with the game
- Bombs
- Electrified cables
- New 9th skills: trampoline, metal builder, rocket bomber, cartwheel bomber, speedup, slowdown and anti-gravity
- Kick-boxing rats
- Shark infested custard
- Lemmings music
- Switches and levers that lie half-way across platforms (true 3D gameplay!)
- Introductory and reward FMV sequences.

Information from Game on Magazine Lemmings Revolution Preview

Note: this is the latest information available on Lemmings Revolution

It promises to be ever bit as annoying and mind boggling as the original and combined with the skills seen in the original Lemmings game, we're also likely to see new features like Anti gravity, Herder, Lantern, Rocket, Slow down, Speed up, Trampoline and Catherine wheel. We'll also see two new breeds of Lemming. The garden variety are the ones we're used to, but also Lava and Water varieties which can walk on guess what ... well Lava and Water.
