SEGA today announced "Virtual On Marz," a blazing-fast mech combat game exclusively for the PlayStation2. "Virtual On Marz" casts gamers as a member of "Marz," a Robotic Special Forces unit charged with keeping peace in the galaxy. Players are thrust into the pilot's seat of a giant mechanized battle Virtuaroid as they blast through dozens of missions, defend allied bases, attack enemy convoys and fight alongside other Virtuaroids in explosive 2-on-2 battles.

"Virtual On Marz" brings home the same heart-stopping thrills that made the "Virtual On(tm)" series a classic, and ups the ante with more than 40 characters, a deep story mode, intense head-to-head multiplayer action and dozens of unlockable surprises. "Virtual On" experts will be able to take advantage of a new "Virtual Twin Stick" control scheme, recreating the legendary arcade "Twin Stick" controls in addition to a new easy-to-use pick-up-and-play setup for beginners.

"'Virtual On Marz' is mech combat meets street brawling in a white-knuckled battle royale to save the galaxy," said Mike Fischer, vice president of marketing, SEGA of America, Inc. "Fans of the classic series will be thrilled by the new story mode and massive unlockable archives. Newcomers won't know what hit them."

"Virtual On Marz" is in development by SEGA's Hitmaker! studio and is slated for release in November 2003.
