It's getting something of a refresh -- if you snag one of Apple's upcoming iPhone XS models, you'll be able to play Galaga in augmented reality and against your friends, Directive Games said Wednesday at Apple's iPhone event. It's one of several AR arcade games that'll be available later in the year. 

This AR version of Galaga is part of Apple's push to make augmented reality a feature mainstream customers would consider using.
