British metal band Iron Maiden debuted their latest track this morning, and the official video is a heavy nod to some of video gaming's greats.

Speed of Light, the first release off their upcoming new album Book of Souls, sees their long-term mascot Eddie transformed into pixels and yanked into arcade machines, skipping through multiple game eras as he goes, becoming a character in a variety of titles that look similar to the likes of Donkey Kong and Call of Duty.

Check out the full video here.

The band's not a stranger to the world of video games - the video itself pays another homage to Ed Hunter, the 1999 video game tie-in. The game saw Eddie play through levels inspired by the band's cover artwork.
