KONAMI ANNOUNCES SAW NOW AVAILABLE
Terror, Suspense and Consequences Comes Full Circle as SAW
Cuts Into Retail Stores Nationwide
Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc., today announced SAW is now
available for the Xbox 360® and PlayStation®3 at retail stores nationwide.
Released just before the theatrical release of Lionsgate® and Twisted Picture’s
SAW VI, SAW touts its own unique story arch that is both congruent and in-line
with all the horror and suspense that the SAW films have become famous for. To
further immerse players into the SAW universe, actor Tobin Bell has reprised his
role as Jigsaw, the methodical villain, who is the cornerstone of the SAW
franchise, to constantly taunt and tease players as they are tested in Jigsaw’s
game set in an abandoned asylum.
"Konami and Lionsgate are going to make October 2009 an epic
month for horror fans," said David Daniels, Director of Marketing for Konami
Digital Entertainment Inc. "With SAW the game coming out just before the
expected release of SAW VI, we are going to make this October an unprecedented
month of terror for SAW fans worldwide. "
"We are excited that the SAW fans get to experience Jigsaw in
a virtual way just before the upcoming release of SAW VI," said producers Mark
Burg and Oren Koules of Twisted Pictures.
In SAW, players jump back into the SAW chronology as the game
pits you in between SAW I and SAW II, playing as Detective Tapp, seeking out the
true identity of Jigsaw. As with the films, SAW is all about choice, and the
choices you make will determine how long you survive this sinister game.
Puzzles, mini-games, exploration and intense combat keeps players engaged in
this suspenseful and maniacal game of survival as Jigsaw tests them. Oh, and
then there are the traps, of course. Players will come in contact with iconic
traps from the films as well as brand new traps that will force players to make
hard decisions as to who lives and who does not.
SAW is rated Mature by the ESRB and is now available in retail
stores on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 system for the SRP of $59.99. SAW will also
be available for PC download later this month for the SRP of $49.99. For more
