In a new video to promote the upcoming release of ‘Star Trek: The Video Game,’ William Shatner battles the original TOS Gorn in a rematch more than 45 years in the making.
Shatner, who just turned 82 last week, breaks out some of Captain Kirk’s classic hand-to-hand fighting techniques as he battles his old nemesis.
Set between the events of the 2009 film and STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS, the game will hit store shelves on April 26th and will be available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
Written by Star Trek (2009) writer-producers Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman of J.J. Abrams’ company, Bad Robot in collaboration with God of War writer, Marianne Krawczyk, the game will allow players experience gameplay as Kirk or Spock as they battle enemies, including an updated version of the Gorn.
Check out the video below.
Compare that to their original battle from the TOS episode “Arena.”
