of Purgatory for the PSP(tm) portable entertainment system.
The second original PSP game by Konami,
Rengoku features an imaginative science-fiction setting with
breathtaking graphics and dark, gritty foreboding art created by famed
Japanese illustrator Jun Suemi. Modeled in a compelling blend of Eastern and
Western sci-fi fantasy environments,
Rengoku places players in a
dark and distant future in the role of a well-armed battle android that must
fight its way to the pinnacle of a great tower to confront a mysterious foe.
Created especially for the PSP portable,
Rengoku features immense replay value thanks to the system’s
wireless technology and the game’s four-person multiplayer gameplay.
"By utilizing the system’s
innovative wireless technology and amazing graphics,
Rengoku provides non-stop action
with brilliant visuals and delivers an incredible portable gaming experience
to consumers," said Wilson Cheng, product manager, Konami Digital
Entertainment – America.
Battling through eight
massive and distinctly-themed levels, gamers continue to move upward,
improving their android’s skills, as well as acquiring new weapons and
technologies. The dungeon-crawling action with randomized levels and missions
also offers tremendous replay value. Players must strategically manage their
resources to tackle the missions at hand and achieve long-term goals. Taking
full advantage of the PSP portable’s capabilities, gamers can trade equipment
and items or battle with up to three other players in the action-packed
deathmatch mode via the wireless multiplayer connection. In the end, there can
be only one master atop the Tower of Purgatory!
