SUNNYVALE, Calif. — December 5, 2003 – Capcom®, a leading worldwide developer
and publisher of video games today announced the release of the PC version of
Chaos Legion, based on the PlayStation2 computer entertainment system game of
the same name. Chaos Legion submits an entirely new way to play an action game
offering complete control over both the hero and the mighty legions he can

Chaos Legion is an intense tale that follows the story of two powerful swordsman
named Sieg Wahrheit and his old friend Victor Delacroix. An incident leads
Delacroix to “fall” into darkness and it is Sieg’s mission to pursue him before
the world descends into chaos. Blending action adventure and RPG elements, Chaos
Legion puts a twist on the single player melee by allowing gamers to summon a
legion of allies to counter the attacks of relentless enemies. There are seven
different legion units available for assistance, each with their own signature
weaponry including bow and arrows, bombs and swords.
Chaos Legion includes the following features:
Perfect blend of RPG and action
gameplay – Capcom takes an entirely new approach to the action genre as
players will find they can power up their legions increasing among other
things the number under control, attack and defensive power they posses.
Increase the main character’s
abilities – One of the most significant features is the player’s ability to
power up the main character’s attributes through the legions. For instance, if
the sword legion’s ‘Enchant’ ability is powered up, the main character will
gain more powerful sword moves.
Magnificent battles – Chaos Legion
features battles in which astonishing numbers of enemies are fighting on
screen at one time. This feature will give players a true sense of epic
battles in which two armies fight for victory.
Varied and detailed environments –
Chaos Legion possesses beautifully rendered environments including ruins,
caves and others that perfectly represent the dark mood of the game.
High resolution support – The game
will feature insanely high resolution support that ranges from 640- x 480
through 1600 X 1200 monitor resolution, the standard for today’s players who
strictly demand quality.
Support for 8 languages –
Japanese, English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Korean, Chinese
