NEW YORK, September 12, 2007 – Atari, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATAR), one of the world’s most recognized brands and a third-party video game publisher, today announced the further growth of one of its long-running publishing franchises with news that Godzilla®: Unleashed, the ultimate giant monsters fighting game, is in development on the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system in addition to the Wii™ and Nintendo DS™. Developed by Pipeworks, Godzilla: Unleashed is scheduled for a fall 2007 release.
Godzilla: Unleashed is a fighting game on a giant scale, starring the legendary Godzilla and a slew of at least 20 of some of the most renowned monsters of all-time. Gamers are challenged to save the planet from mayhem and destruction, but not before causing some of their own. Set in nine urban arenas, Godzilla: Unleashed’s interactive 3D cityscapes, big destructible buildings, soaring skyscrapers and towering alien formations provide the backdrop to epic worldwide destruction.
“We are excited to bring Godzilla: Unleashed to the PlayStation 2 system,” said Keehwan Her, Producer, Atari, Inc. “We’ve made some interesting adaptations from past Godzilla games, so players will encounter different story modes, new monster abilities, and more flexible multiplayer capabilities, ensuring a must-have Godzilla experience.”
The character line-up on the PlayStation 2 system features new monsters not found on the Nintendo DS and Wii versions of the game. Players will fight at least 20 monsters, with the newcomers fighting alongside or against favorites from past Godzilla video games. Godzilla: Unleashed features an innovative non-linear storyline which allows players to influence how the story unfolds through their choices within battles, and a flexible multiplayer mode which supports up to four players for the ultimate city-crushing monster extravaganza.
