Leading video games developer and publisher NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc., today announced that Time CrisisT: Razing Storm is now available at retailers nationwide exclusively for the PlayStation3 computer entertainment system. The latest entry in the popular arcade shooting series, Time Crisis: Razing Storm delivers the most intuitive point-and-shoot experience ever as players have the option of using the revolutionary PlayStationMove motion controller or Guncon3. Additionally, the game will storm into homes with enhanced gameplay, a new multiplayer online battle mode and special content.
An influential and dangerous international military organization decides to declare war against the United States. The government deploys elite task force S.C.A.R. to South America for the purpose of capturing the mastermind behind this conflict. The future of the free world depends on these special operatives. Can they stop these terrorists before it is too late?
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.
Rounding out the package, Time Crisis: Razing Storm will include two additional games: Deadstorm Pirates and Time Crisis4 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 PlayStationMove motion controller and Guncon3.
To further extend the accessibility of the Time Crisis brand, Namco Networks recently launched Time Crisis 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.
