About Judy

As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Majesco to Publish 'Phantom Dust' (Xbox) - Screens

by Judy on Dec. 14, 2004 @ 9:09 a.m. PST

Play online or offline as one of the ‘gifted ones’. The single player story unfolds as you try to unlock the mystery of human kind near-destruction. Set in a post-apocalyptic time, you leave the safety of the underground to explore the surface with your supernatural abilities. Unfortunately, the surface is now filled with creatures that are the embodiment of people's worst thoughts and nightmares. You must also deal with a surface that is surrounded by mysterious particles called Phantom Dust. The action intensifies as you strategically use your psychic-skills to defeat your opponents as you search for your lost memories. Then, take the secrets you’ve learned on the surface and crush your competition on Xbox Live. Your skill and mastery of your powers is what defines you!

A devastated future highlighted by the near destruction of the human race.

“Phantom Dust is one of the great new titles we have scheduled to kick-off our 2005 product lineup,” said Ken Gold, vice president of Marketing for Majesco. “Developed by Microsoft Games Studios Japan, Phantom Dust will take full advantage of Xbox Liveby allowing players to obtain and trade more than 300 of the game's “skills” online, while giving them a deep and involved single-player game experience at the same time.”

Successfully released in Japan where it has earned a coveted score of 34 out of 40 from Famitsu magazine, one of the top video games publications in Japan, Phantom Dust is an anime-inspired game set in a post-apocalyptic era where chaos has forced people underground for safety. Players must journey above ground in a quest to learn who and what was behind the destruction, but the surface is a place of deadly evil filled with unimaginable abominations. It is also home to mysterious particles known only as Phantom Dust, a force unlike any other that has given some members of the human race unimaginable super powers.

Featuring more than 200 single-player missions where players can build up their skill inventory, Majesco's Phantom Dust also features several multiplayer modes via Xbox Live. Once connected, players can attain special skills and unlock new battle arenas by winning and competing in Live battles. Players can then trade these skills with other Xbox Live users, attempting to amass the more than 300 skills available. A game of fast-paced action and cunning strategy, Phantom Dust will test the physical and mental prowess of even the most advanced player.

Phantom Dust for Xbox is scheduled for release this winter. More information on this product as well as Majesco's entire lineup can be found online at www.majescogames.com.
