Clash of the Titans throws debutante ball
6/29/2010 6:53:00 PM
In a sort of coming out party, Clash of the Titans
has gone gold. To celebrate, Namco Bandai has released a cornucopia of art, screens and even a trailer. The various pictures and screens do a good job of showing some of the enemies you'll encounter in-game.
Watching the trailer makes me realize just how awesome the movie could (and should) have been. Too bad Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. completely botched that job. Clash of the Titans
(the video game) is being released on July 27 for Xbox 360 and PS3. Take a look at all of these assets if you dare!

About “Clash of the Titans” movie
In Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ “Clash of the Titans,” the ultimate struggle for power pits men against kings and kings against gods. But the war between the gods themselves could destroy the world. Born of a god but raised as a man, Perseus (Sam Worthington) is helpless to save his family from Hades (Ralph Fiennes), vengeful god of the underworld. With nothing left to lose, Perseus volunteers to lead a dangerous mission to defeat Hades before he can seize power from Zeus (Liam Neeson) and unleash hell on earth. Leading a daring band of warriors, Perseus sets off on a perilous journey deep into forbidden worlds. Battling unholy demons and fearsome beasts, he will only survive if he can accept his power as a god, defy his fate and create his own destiny.
