Invincible Tiger sarà il primo titolo in 3D stereoscopico


Dal cinema ai videogiochi, e viceversa.

Dopo l'uscita di film in visuale stereoscopica 3D come "Viaggio al Centro dellla Terra" e "San Valentino di Sangue 3D" è giunto il turno dei nostri amati videogiochi.

Invincible Tiger: The Legeng of Han Tao sarà il primo gioco di questa generazione a presentare una visuale stereoscopica in tre dimensioni compatibile sia con le tv e i monitor di ultima generazione sia con dei semplici occhiali 3D.

Il gioco, sviluppato dalla indipendente Blitz Arcade, sarà un sidescroller-action e verrà distribuito in digitale da Namco-Bandai a partire dal prossimo 26 Agosto per Xbox Live, mentre per la versione PSN si dovrà aspettare il giorno successivo.

"Abbiamo lavorato molto per di cercare di creare un gioco che fosse immediato e allo stesso tempo  profondo nelle sue meccaniche. Siamo molto soddisfatti anche del lato puramente tecnico: la visuale stereoscopica in 3D insieme ai 60 frames di animazione costanti darà un impatto visivo veramente unico." Queste le parole di Ollie Clarke, Project Director di Blitz Arcade.

Il comunicato stampa ufficiale in lingua inglese dopo il break.

7 August 2009 Blitz Arcade, a division of Blitz Games Studios, one of Europe’s largest independent video games developers is excited to announce that its upcoming cross-platform kung fu downloadable, Invincible Tiger: The Legend of Han Tao™ will be the first console video game to include true digital stereoscopic 3D technology.

Published by Namco Bandai Games, Invincible Tiger: The Legend of Han Tao lets players get their kung fu on, 70s style, as Han Tao battles across ancient China in search of the stolen Star of Destiny. The game leaps into action on 26 August for XBLA and 27 August for PSN.

A fantastic side-scrolling 2D experience in its own right, Invincible Tiger also gives the option for players to experience a whole new dimension of gaming with digital stereoscopic 3D technology. Crisp and clear 3D depth of field can be viewed without sacrificing colour or clarity through most high-end 3D Ready TVs. The game also includes anaglyph 3D which is compatible with any television set and a pair of standard anaglyph glasses.

“We’ve worked really hard to make Invincible Tiger a kung fu arcade action game that’s fun to play but difficult to master,” said Ollie Clarke, Project Director at Blitz Arcade.”During the game’s development we took up the challenge to implement our groundbreaking BlitzTech Digital Stereoscopic 3D technology, resulting in Digital 3D as an option in the game. It runs at 60 frames per second and creates a super smooth immersive gaming experience for the home 3DTV audience. 3D is here and 3D is fun!”

Added Todd Thorson, director of marketing and public relations for Namco Bandai Games: “We’re very excited to be breaking new technology ground with Invincible Tiger’s Digital 3D option. The inclusion of the 3D technology gives players the opportunity to view and play this already fantastic game in a whole new way.”

Han Tao faces a cavalcade of enemies, ranging from henchmen to undead fighters throughout the game. Luckily, he’s well equipped with intense combos, slick counter-moves, the ability to wield deadly weapons and mystical Zen attacks. Players can fill Han Tao’s Zen Meter with punishing combos and well-timed dodges and unlock the full potential of his power to annihilate his enemies. Sliding down ropes, going through doors, climbing up poles or jumping on roofs, Han Tao is also able to use his environment to quickly escape danger or catch enemies off guard.

Invincible Tiger: The Legend of Han Tao offers a variety of multiplayer modes for both online and local play. Team up with a partner and take on the Evil Overlord’s diabolical army through Story Mode Co-op or battle an endless stream of enemies under a specific time limit with Endurance Mode.
