Do you remember that remake in 3D called Clash of the Titans? It didn’t have a video game tie-in. At least it didn’t until now, as Namco Bandai has announced that Clash of the Titans has gone gold.
Leading video games publisher NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc., today announced that Clash of the Titans has gone gold for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. Developed by Game Republic and licensed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, the robust action-adventure title launches on July 27 in conjunction with the DVD release of Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ feature film “Clash of the Titans” starring Liam Neeson, Sam Worthington and Ralph Fiennes. Featuring battles of epic proportions, the game boasts additional content and symbolic mythical creatures that extend the movie experience into homes.
In Clash of the Titans, the battle for dominance between the human race and powerful gods is about to begin. Born of two worlds, Perseus struggles with the realization that Hades has mercilessly destroyed his family. Now on a course of vengeance, Perseus sets out on a mission to vanquish the god of the underworld and must come to terms with his demigod status.
Traveling through vast landscapes from the highest mountains to the abandoned corridors of a lost temple, players will embody Perseus’ adventure from the film, and take on original new bosses in the game’s Quest mode. Players can use over 80 customizable sub-weapons as they journey solo or with a friend to complete missions and slay a roster of more than 80 different enemies including legendary villains Medusa and the sea monster known as the Kraken. Customers who pre-order Clash of the Titans at Gamestop will have access to exclusive downloadable content which includes additional quests and sub-weapons that will enrich the gameplay experience.
Clash of the Titans is rated “T” for Teen by the ESRB and will have an MSRP of $59.99. For more information on the game, please visit www.clashofthetitansgame.com or www.namcobandaigames.com.
So now you can pick up the game along with the DVD or Blu-ray. At least the game got a couple more months instead of being released with the movie. Whether or not it’s still a good game is still to be determined.
