NAMCO BANDAI GAMES SHIPS TIME CRISIS 4 FOR PLAYSTATION 3 SYSTEM
Hit Shooter Explodes onto the PLAYSTATION 3 System with Enhanced Arcade Gameplay, Original First-Person Shooter Mode and Advanced Guncon 3 Controller
Leading video games developer and publisher NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. announced today that Time Crisis®4 has shipped to North American retailers exclusively for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system. Delivering the smash-hit arcade experience to homes everywhere, Time Crisis 4 breaks new ground in the series by introducing an original first-person shooter (FPS) mode in which players take full control over the on-screen action; moving, aiming and shooting at enemies. Time Crisis 4 comes bundled with the advanced Guncon®3 controller which allows players to target enemies with unprecedented precision and style.
The world is in danger as a group of international terrorists threaten to unleash a terrible new biological weapon on an unsuspecting populace. In the world’s moment of need, it’s up to a group of special operatives from around the globe to take up arms and put an end to this doomsday scenario.
Building on the shooting gameplay of the arcade hit, Time Crisis 4 features a comprehensive story mode that combines the series’ traditional shooting action with fully interactive FPS stages. In the traditional shooting stages, players take on the role of partners Giorgio Bruno and Evan Bernard as they blast their way through 10 fast-paced, tightly scripted stages. In between these stages, players will experience five FPS stages told through the perspective of Captain William Rush in a parallel storyline. A first in the series, these FPS stages let players move and shoot independently through large environments, controlling their character entirely with the Guncon3. Detailing two unique sides of this international military thriller, the new mission structure provides incredible gameplay variety and pacing as players move between different play styles throughout the game. Two players can play cooperatively through the game’s traditional shooting stages as well as more than 15 sharp shooting mini-games. Players can also unlock Crisis Missions, self-contained scenarios with unique objectives and mission parameters, as they play through the game.
Bundled with every copy of Time Crisis 4, the Guncon3 controller sets a new standard in precision, responsiveness and functionality. Featuring six buttons, a trigger, two analog sticks and full motion-sensing capabilities, the unique peripheral lets players aim with confidence, and even move and shoot simultaneously in the game’s FPS stages. The Guncon3 is compatible with all modern television displays, including CRT, LCD and Plasma models.
Packaged with the Guncon3 controller, Time Crisis 4 is rated “T” for Teen by the ESRB and carries a suggested retail price of $89.99. For more information Time Crisis 4, please visit www.timecrisis-4.com.
