It’s Time to Storm into Action with the next Installment of the Popular Arcade Shooter.
SANTA CLARA, Calif., (Sept. 24, 2010) - Leading video games developer and publisher NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc., today announced that Time CrisisTM: Razing StormTM 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 PiratesTM and Time CrisisTM4 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.
To further extend the accessibility of the Time Crisis brand, Namco Networks recently launched Time CrisisTM 2nd Strike on Apple’s App Store for $9.99. Available for iPhone and iPod touch devices, the game offers 10 action-packed stages connected by cinematic cut scenes and the ability to earn per-stage unlockable achievements. With the competition mode, players can aim for the highest score or time.
