Media: SEGA Reveals After Burner Climax for Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network

Back in the 80s, when Top Gun was king and Tom Cruise wasn't best known for being a crazy couch-hopping Scientologist, Yu Suzuki created After Burner for SEGA as one of his first games, and one that would come to help identify the company in those days. Now, SEGA and AM2 are bringing it back on Xbox LIVE Arcade and the PlayStation Network this Spring with After Burner Climax. And to help announce this return, they've released the following trailer: "Its fast and furious stuff," says the SEGA Europe blog, "but built for all skill levels, so you don't have to be called Maverick or Iceman to beat it! Using Climax Mode, players can activate slow motion, which makes avoiding rockets and bullets easier, and increasing accuracy whilst aiming for those harder to hit targets!" They add that the PlayStation Portable game, After Burner: Black Falcon will go to the PSN Store on February 4th. For more After Burner Climax, check out the screens in our gallery below. Read More
