Marvelous Entertainment USA and
XSEED Games Launch Avalon Code for the Nintendo DS Journey Through a Doomed
World in this Unique Action RPG
Videogame publishers Marvelous
Entertainment USA and XSEED Games announced today that Avalon Code has started
shipping to retail stores across North America. Avalon Code is an action RPG
developed exclusively for the Nintendo DS platform.
Time is dwindling down and the world
is on a path headed towards a fiery destruction. As ‘the chosen one,’ players
must hold on to everything worth saving in this dying place, and take it into
the new world, to begin anew. Guided by the Spirits, players embark on a journey
to fill the pages of the mysterious tome, the Book of Prophecy, with items
worthy of being saved.
Developed by Matrix Software, Avalon
Code extends the creative capabilities of the Nintendo DS to a new limit with
highly detailed characters, landscapes and monsters, all modeled in beautiful
3D. Experience the game world come to life as almost any object in Avalon Code
can be recorded and manipulated within the Book of Prophecy, making the
possibilities endless. In addition, Avalon Code features extensive voiceovers
and a dynamic animated opening sequence.
Critics agree that the Book of
Prophecy offers a completely new gameplay mechanic unlike anything seen before
on the DS:
“Avalon Code offers a unique
experience among action RPG’s. Capturing people and objects in the Book of
Prophecy and playing with their attributes is a compelling mechanic you won’t
find anywhere else.” – IGN.com, 8.3 out of 10
“The Book of Prophecy is a great
idea, and it’s far from the game’s only left-field innovation.” – Nintendo
Power, 8.5 out of 10
Avalon Code boasts incredible
graphics, a deep and engrossing storyline and innovative game play mechanics.
Using the main character’s Book of Prophecy, players can modify the rules of
engagement during battle, as well as weapon and monster attributes. Choose to
play as male or female, affecting which characters you may be able to develop a
romantic relationship with.
Avalon Code is rated “E10+” for
Everyone 10 and over by the ESRB and is available exclusively on the Nintendo DS
for the suggested retail price of $34.99. For more information, please visit:
