Konami today announced that it has shipped two video game titles based on the hit TOKYOPOP anime property Rave Master. Rave Master: Special Attack Force for the GBA and Rave Master for the GameCube are over-the-top fighting games that feature storylines, characters and locations from the popular Rave Master animated TV series and comic books.

Rave Master: Special Attack Force is a 2D fighting game in which players take on the role of Haru Glory, an energetic teenage boy who embarks on an epic quest to seek out the magical “Rave Stones” that are needed to put an end to the evil “Shadow Guard.” When young Haru is bestowed with the power to wield the legendary sword, he is transformed into the Rave Master. It is up to him and his friends Plue, Elie and other popular Rave Master characters to use their power to restore order to the land. Players must utilize the game’s Tension Guage to unleash battle cries, attack combos and special movies and master all of the characters’ unique attacks and special combos in order to defeat their enemies.

Featuring stunning 3D fighting action, Rave Master for the GameCube includes 19 characters from the animated series including Haru, Elie, Musica and others. Rave Master’s unique Story Edit Mode allows players to create their very own original Rave Master adventure by choosing dialogue, backgrounds and even music. With visual and audio effects that recreate the feel of the Rave Master animated series and multiple attack combos, weapons and unique moves for each character, Rave Master for the GameCube offers hours of fun for fighting game and Rave Master fans.

Both Rave Master titles blend elements of action and fighting into one complete package, enabling players to experience the story and interact with characters directly from the animated series and comic books. Both games feature compelling single-player story modes and exciting four-person multiplayer modes. With audio and visual effects complimenting the flawless anime art style of the animated TV series, the video games brings the Rave Master property to life in a fully interactive medium.

Rave Master: Special Attack Force and Rave Master are both rated “T” for Teen by the ESRB and are available for the suggested retail price of $29.99.

Rave Master debuted as a comic book in Japan in 1999 and has since spawned the successful television show, 27 graphic novels and multiple video games.
