Embark on an Epic Journey With
Dungeon Explorer Warriors of Ancient Arts
Hudson Entertainment Brings
Classic Action RPG Franchise to PSP and NDS Next Year
Hudson Entertainment, the North
American publishing arm for Hudson Soft, announced today that it is bringing
Dungeon Explorer Warriors of Ancient Arts to North America in early 2008 for the
PSP and Nintendo DS. Each version of the game will feature a unique story with
epic battles, an all new assortment of weapons and many unique fighting styles.
Like the classic game, the new versions will feature deep and customizable
multiplayer adventuring. Dungeon Explorer: Warriors of Ancient Arts will be
available February 2008.
In the game for the PSP system,
players are trained in weaponry and mystical forces as Warriors of Ancient Arts.
On a quest and ready to uncover the fate of a legendary kingdom, gamers will
prepare to battle demonic forces and monstrous creatures. DE: WAA features
hundreds of variations of weapons, armor and equipment that can be chosen and
upgraded throughout the adventure to defeat enemies. Unique for the PSP system,
players have the ability to choose their warfare style with more than 150
different kinds of fighting arts, including Big Bang Arts, allowing three
players to team up to triple their destructive power in Ad-Hoc Multiplayer mode.
In the DS version, gamers find
themselves in a land plagued by a legion of undead, monstrous soldiers.
Commanded by the Demon God, the Evil Menace is determined on bringing Westoria
Kingdom to its final days. The story takes place centuries after the events of
the PSP version, as a legend foretells of a hero who will rise to face the
threat. Gamers must rediscover the lost Ancient Fighting Arts of Westoria in
order to restore peace to a once sprawling and vibrant kingdom. With more than
60 different fighting arts across 8 lost Ancient Fighting Art schools, players
can become a skilled warrior to successfully wage battle against dangerous
enemies such as the Demon God’s undead soldiers, mutated monsters, and an army
of ancient automatons. To assist in battle, the game offers hundreds of weapons,
armor and equipment; all can be upgraded along the way. Players can also choose
from three hero races and three character classes to form a unique warrior for
battle. For a group effort, 3 players can join forces to battle the Demon god’s
minions via Nintendo’s Wireless Connection.
