Elite left its mark in the MSX history. It's for sure one of the most loved and innovative games released for the system.
The game is being remade for PC and Mac thanks to a very successful crowd funding campaign, and now Frontier Developments has released an impressive trailer. It's the Elite: Dangerous Capital Ship Battle Video. An interesting insight into the development process of this game can be found by reading the dev diary.
On MSX, Elite was released in 1987 on cassette and floppy disk by Mr. Micro.
