Virtual Air Guitar Company Ltd, a Helsinki-based independent game developer and computer vision specialist, announced today that its upcoming full-body motion fighting experience, Kung-Fu LIVE, will be launching on PlayStation Network this December 7th and 8th in North America and Europe respectively. The team released a brand new trailer giving viewers a look at the intense action that players will step into when this highly-anticipated and heavily buzzed about game is available for download onto the PlayStation3.
“We had the opportunity to bring Kung-Fu LIVE to thousands of players across the world this summer at multiple public gaming events and the response has been overwhelmingly positive,” said Teemu Maki-Patola, CEO of Virtual Air Guitar Company Ltd. “The feedback has helped our small, independent team of developers deliver a fresh, fast, and frenetic experience that’s never been done quite like this before. Amid the sweat and adrenaline-filled discussions, the question everyone has had for us since day one was this: When will it launch? That question has finally been answered, and players will now be able to kick some serious ass in their living rooms this December!”
Kung-Fu LIVE fuses players into a world of pulp action-comics with accurate real-time motion and image scanning, letting fans literally step inside the fight like never before. Using the PlayStation®Eye, Virtual Air Guitar Company’s patented Freemotion® technology has helped to create the first controller-free fighting game of its kind that transports players into the game world, challenging them to survive using a limitless array of free-style martial arts and acrobatic moves with their own bodies and without restrictions. Utilizing real-time background image removal combined with enormous interactive environments, a roster of impossible-made-possible power moves, and unique multiplayer components, Kung-Fu LIVE lets players star in the ultimate kung-fu comic adventure that will unleash the inner Bruce Lee in everyone!
Kung-Fu LIVE will be published independently by Virtual Air Guitar Company Ltd., and will provide a fast, fun, and action packed experience while ushering in a new era of full-body motion gaming when it launches on PlayStation Network for just $14.99 USD in North America, and only €13.99 EUR / £10.99 GBP in Europe.
