Sword Fighting Game Utilizes The Wii Remote(TM) With Wii MotionPlus(TM) To Deliver The Ultimate Weapon
EDISON, N.J., April 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — En garde! Prepare to battle in the ultimate sword fight as Majesco Entertainment Company (Nasdaq: COOL), an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, announces Swords for Wii™. Swords pits players against some of the most formidable adversaries in history using the Wii Remote™ with Wii MotionPlus™ as their blade for accurate 1-to-1 motion-based battles.
In Swords, players travel through time and space to challenge eight skilled adversaries– including the flirtatious yet dangerous beauty Keiko Anamura, the vicious Viking chieftain Armin, the famed Sir Lancelot of the Round Table and many more. Each victory grants players an upgraded, unique sword, providing them the type of blade they need to successfully defeat the next in line of opponents. Once they’ve cut their way through the list of history’s top masters, they must defeat the mysterious final combatant in order to earn the title of Greatest Swordsman of All Time.
Beginning humbly in the dojo, players train and prepare with their sensei before setting off to battle. Players gain the skills and combos necessary during these rigorous training sessions by tackling a series of drills including carving, sparring, blocking and even battling a horde of zombies! In addition, players can train together with a friend or go head to head in the arena to determine the ultimate master of the blade.
Developed by Panic Button, Swords for Wii™ is expected to release in September 2010. For additional information about Majesco’s exciting line of products, please visit www.majescoentertainment.com.
