X-Blades (Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system & Windows-Based PC – February 2009)
Ayumi, the main character, is an adventurous relic hunter in search of an artifact believed to hold the fate of the world in its grasp. Featuring anime noir, film-quality animation and high-speed gameplay, players can upgrade magic abilities to fight off elemental beasts and design their own control scheme, mapping magic attacks to the buttons they want. X-Blades is being developed by Gaijin Entertainment and TopWare Interactive.
Roogoo Attack! (Nintendo DS™ – Spring 2009)
Based on the critically acclaimed
Roogoo Twisted Towers! (Wii™ – Spring 2009)
Utilizing unique motion-sensitive Wii controls, players can rotate platforms, net butterflies, hammer evil Meemoo, and play in entirely new ways. Take on giant level bosses, fighter planes, and many new gameplay twists that builds upon the addicting action found in the original. Up to four players can play that feature adversarial, cooperative and party play modes.
Velvet Assassin (Xbox 360 & Windows-Based PC – Spring 2009)
Developed by Hamburg, Germany-based Replay Studios, players take control of Violette Summer, a beautiful spy deep behind enemy lines during World War II. Intense stealth-action gameplay with a startling real-time lighting system and surreal visuals combine to produce an incredible gaming experience. Through third-person gameplay, sneak up on enemies and pull the pins from their belted grenades. Infiltrate a Gestapo prison and slip cyanide to your own men before the Germans make them talk. Slink through the shadows to finish off your unsuspecting enemies with a single, silent move.
Section 8™ (Xbox 360 & Windows-Based PC – Fall 2009)
Section 8™ is a large-scale, sci-fi first person shooter where fast-paced action meets military strategy in the far reaches of the galaxy. Join the epic battle between the 8th Armored Infantry and the Arm of Orion by taking part in fierce squad-based combat across majestic alien worlds. With customized loadouts, on-demand vehicle requisitions, strategic asset deliveries, and Dynamic Combat Missions, no two games of Section 8 will ever play the same.
