Vexx (PS2/NGC/Xbox) - Release Date & Screens

by Rainier on Dec. 17, 2002 @ 8:43 p.m. PST

On the forsaken remains that were once the proud planet called Astara, the villagers of Rockhaven lead difficult but peaceful lives, until the day the Shadowraith, "Dark Yabu," and his minions sweep down from the sky. With terrible ferocity and ruthless efficiency they descend upon the townsfolk, enslaving them to work deep in the caves that surround their village. The Dark Yabu kills the grandfather of the young Vexx, who manages to slip quietly aboard the enemy's windship. There, locked deep within Yabu's sanctum, lie the last pair of Astani Battlegauntlets. The gloves leap from their chest onto Vexx's outstretched hands, bonding to his arms and giving him special powers. Acclaim will be releasing Vexx for the PS2, GameCube and Xbox this February.

During the product's extended development cycle, Vexx has added or expanded the following new elements for a fully-immersive, fun platform experience:

  • New monsters;
  • Expanding Vexx's move set and combo bonuses;
  • Adding more sounds, voices, particle effects, and a training level;
  • Adding more storyline content to the game;
  • Removing the slow motion effect that appears the first time you attack an enemy;
  • Modifying all worlds for faster, smoother, more seamless gameplay;
  • There are now 9 smaller worlds instead of 6 huge worlds split into 3 areas, which keep the game's pace more focused;
  • Each world has a hub to allow for easy transfer between all main areas.
