'Unbound Saga' (PSP) Drops Digital Download Price

Unbound Saga is a 3D side-scrolling brawler set in a satirical comic book universe, where enemies are drawn onto the screen and madcap battles travel from panel to panel through a post-apocalyptic landscape. Break off a weapon and rage off the page!

Unbound Saga is based on the upcoming comic book of the same name to be published by Dark Horse Comics, a leading publisher of comic books and graphic novels.

The Unbound Saga video game follows the adventures of comic book tough guy Rick Ajax. Trapped in a comic book world that is always in need of saving, Rick is not only at odds with the constant threats against his world, but also with the ubiquitous entity known as ‘The Maker’ who constantly ‘draws’ new dangers to put in Rick’s path. But Rick has had enough and is making his way, one brawl at a time, to the final throw down with ‘The Maker’. With art by comic book artist/writer Cliff Richards (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Wonder Woman, The New Thunderbolts), Unbound Saga brings hardboiled comic book action and button crunching fighting fury to portable gaming.

“Unbound Saga has been wearing out the thumbs of brawler-loving PSP fans since its introduction,” said Vogster’s Marketing Director Mario Kroll.  “With summer coming to a close, and the introduction of a new download-only PSP go imminent, we believe now is an ideal time to lower the price to allow more consumers to experience the ‘brawls to the wall’ action of Unbound Saga via digital download.”

The City of Toxopolis is over run with every kind of diabolical foe imaginable and they are all ready to brawl with Rick Ajax and Lori Machete. If you have ever wanted to punch a Leopard-man, wrestle a three-armed sewer mutant, or crack a board over a talking swamp-turtle's head, your time has arrived.

Key Features:

  • Comic Come to Life: Climb through the panels and fight hand drawn enemies as you uncover the twisted comic book tale of Rick Ajax.
  • Tag Team Heroes: Strategically switch between two main characters, Rick Ajax and Lori Machete, each with their own unique fighting styles and special unlockable skills.
  • Interactive Environments: Real-time physics allow you to smash anything in the room! If you can pick it up, you can use it as a weapon!
  • Character Advancement: Collect Experience Points and customize your Heroes’ abilities with unique, unlockable Skills and Powers. The better you play, the more XP you earn, and the more cool moves you can unlock!
  • Story: You are Rick Ajax or Lori Machete, two fighters with their own style and a unique set of skills. As you journey through the futuristic wastelands of Toxopolis in search of your nemesis, “The Maker”, you will encounter a wide range of bizarre creatures, colorful characters, and brutal bosses, most of whom will try their best to prevent you from reaching your goal.

Unbound Saga, rated T for Teen, will be available via digital download through the PlayStation Network for the PSP for $9.99 / € 8.99
