Epic kung-fu adventure Kung-Fu LIVE, which is available for download from PlayStationNetwork, is now available at a discounted price to all PlayStationPlus users worldwide. Ambitious martial artists and amateur ass-kickers alike will now save 20% off the regular price when subscribed to PlayStationPlus, meaning users in North America can look for the discounted price of $11.99.
To kick off this promotion, the team at Virtual Air Guitar Company has zoomed in on two of the most impressive Kung-Fu LIVE players to date. In one video, ‘Kjer,’ a known extreme martial artist and YouTube sensation, maximizes his playing space in his apartment to push himself, and the game, to all new heights. In the another video, ‘Vellu,’ a Finnish high-flying martial arts tricking guru, demonstrates his skills in the game in an open training facility. Each video shows off some of the spectacular moves that able-bodied martial artists can perform for an added twist in this true, high impact, full-body motion gaming experience that’s unlike anything else. The team at Virtual Air Guitar Company have actually worked together with martial arts experts throughout the development of the game.
“The launch of the game this holiday has resulted in an avalanche of videos from around the globe, most of them funny and some of them quite incredible,” said Teemu Maki-Patola, CEO of Virtual Air Guitar Company Ltd. “Seeing people spin, flip, and almost literally fly around their living rooms and playing spaces is an incredible sight. We urge all gamers to play safely and know their own limits, but we also urge them to have a look at how some professional-level players with proper training, patience, discipline, and adequate playing space can boot up our game and kick ass in ways we had never before thought possible.”
Players interested in sharing their videos with Virtual Air Guitar Company are encouraged to email their YouTube videos to firstname.lastname@example.org to be considered for placement among the top ranking Kung-Fu LIVE martial-artists in the world. A select few could even be rewarded with Kung-Fu LIVE gear, including rare bandanas and signed photographs of international video game celebrity and Kung-Fu LIVE mascot ‘Sensei Oskari’ himself. In addition to the latest trailers and off-the-wall tutorial videos, Kung-Fu LIVE’s YouTube page will feature these players from around the world showing off their best, worst, most bizarre, insane, ridiculous, and COMPLETELY crazy fighting styles.
Kung-Fu LIVE, from Helsinki–based independent game developer Virtual Air Guitar Company Ltd., transforms everyday gamers into real life kung-fu action heroes. With their advanced FreeMotion technology, players can finally put themselves directly into the action when they download the game onto the PS3.
