Namco shooter on the way
Time Crisis: Razing Storm is packing a lot of heat into a single Blu-ray disc when it launches in North America on October 19th, as it features Time Crisis 4 (Arcade Version) and swashbuckling shooter Deadstorm Pirates.
The package will naturally utilise the Move controller for precision shooting, although the Guncon 3 is also supported, with a competitive online mode making its debut alongside online leaderboards.
We'll have a full review of Time Crisis: Razing Storm shortly after its North American release on October 19th. The game currently has no confirmed release date in Europe.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Leading video games developer and publisher NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc., today announced that Time Crisis: Razing Storm has gone gold for the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system. The next iteration in the popular arcade shooting franchise will charge into homes with enhanced gameplay, a new multiplayer online battle mode and special content. Compatible with the PlayStation Move motion controller or Guncon 3, Time Crisis: Razing Storm will deliver the most intuitive point-and-shoot experience when the game is released throughout North America on October 19, 2010.
Featuring four extensive gameplay modes, Time Crisis: Razing Storm combines the series' traditional shooting action with fully destructible environments. Arcade Mode provides the perfect coin-op adaptation to experience the adrenaline rush of annihilating an onslaught of enemies. In the game's free-roaming Story Mode, players can take cover and shoot at-will in a variety of new stages. New to the series, a multiplayer Online Battle Mode will allow up to eight friends from around the world to participate in cooperative and competitive fun. Sentry Mode offers up to four players the offline opportunity to stop prisoners from escaping during a penitentiary riot that unfolds in the beginning of the main story.
As a bonus, Time Crisis: Razing Storm will include two additional games: Deadstorm Pirates and Time Crisis 4 Arcade Ver.
Set sail and step into the shoes of a young swashbuckler in Deadstorm Pirates. Recently released in the arcades, players partake in single or two player co-op arcade adventures while shooting down hordes of enemies and monsters. Players will man the helm, fire guns and cannons, as they travel across the open seas in search for Poseidon's Treasure.
Revisit the dynamic partnership of Giorgio Bruno and Evan Bernard as they prevent a biological weapon from falling into the wrong hands in the arcade version of Time Crisis 4. Based on the 2007 hit, Time Crisis 4 features fast-paced action that allows players to take cover from a barrage of bullets, lead out, and then engage their enemies in either single or split-screen multiplayer modes. An online ranking system will be available in both Deadstorm Pirates and Time Crisis 4, so players can see how their performance stacks up against the world. Both games will also be compatible with the PlayStation Move motion controller and Guncon 3.
Time Crisis: Razing Storm is rated "T" for Teen by the ESRB and will have an MSRP of $49.99. For more information about the game, please visit www.namcobandaigames.com.
