'Moon Diver' (ALL) Gets XBLA Date

by Rainier on April 20, 2011 @ 9:38 a.m. PDT

Moon Diver invites players into an action-packed world of 4-player cooperative, side-scrolling mayhem.

While Moon Diver certainly pays homage to its side-scrolling ancestor with hordes of enemies and gigantic bosses, the game innovates in a number of ways, including: entirely modern three-dimensional graphics; a dynamic and intuitive character experience and leveling system; four-player local and online co-op with the ability to instantly drop in and out; and finally, a number of unique, selectable, upgradeable and cooperatively combinable character special abilities called “MoonSault Combinations,” which can dramatically alter the field of play at any moment – from powerful area-of-effect attacks to critical passive power boosts to simple, yet effective, invisibility.

At the dawn of the 22nd century, an evil power brought inanimate objects to life, and they turned on humanity. Bridges, automobiles, cities – the whole of humanity’s creations were all made to turn on their makers. Mankind’s fears of apocalypse became reality!

Hidden amongst humanity’s survivors, an elite unit of specially-trained ninja known as Moondivers has been lying in wait for orders to reclaim the planet.

Today, those orders arrived. Today, the battle to retake Earth begins.
