Blinx 2: Masters of Time & Space
Goes Gold

Microsoft Game Studios today
announced that Blinx 2: Masters of Time & Space, the sequel to one of the
best-selling Xbox® action-platformers, has gone gold and is shipping to retail
stores on November 16 for an estimated retail price of $39.99 (U.S.). Gamers
will soon be guaranteed a trip through the fifth dimension as they maneuver
their characters through a cosmic conflict between time-shifting cats and
space-twisting pigs.

Blinx 2: Masters of Time & Space is
the world’s first 5-D game, giving players control over both Time and Space.
Developed by Japan-based Artoon, Co. Ltd., Blinx 2: Masters of Time & Space
throws players into the shoes of a heroic cat bravely taking control of time in
order to face tough battles and puzzling challenges. Just like using a VCR
remote control, players’ customized cats have the power to slow down the action,
pause, review, fast-forward, record and even combine the powers in challenging
situations. As the story unfolds, players will also step into the role of the
enemy pigs to gain control of the space continuum in a variety of stealth
missions. Players will create their own customized pigs and feel like they have
control over black holes and worm holes.

Blinx 2: Masters of Time & Space
features various multiplayer modes that will allow gamers to get their friends
in on the action. Players can grab a friend and play through the story in
two-player Cooperative Mode, compete in multiplayer Battle Mode with up to four
players on one Xbox or make their ways through the single-player missions on
their own. Those who choose to play through the storyline cooperatively will
need to overcome tougher groups of enemies and unique two-player challenges with
strategy and teamwork. Cooperative players will also be rewarded with unique map
locations that are only accessible in two-player mode. In Battle Mode, gamers
can choose to lead a squad of cats using time control powers or command a team
of enemy pigs using space control powers. Whether they are playing through
single player missions or any of the multiplayer modes, players can fully
customize their cats and pigs by designing the character’s face, body and
clothing. Blinx 2 is rated "E" for Everyone. For more information, please visit
