'Sine Mora' (XBLA) Boss Battles Designed By Prominent Japanese Anime Creator

Sine Mora Ex is a diesel-punk shoot-'em-up that provides a distinct take on the genre, where time is the ultimate factor.

Mixing classic shooter sensibilities with next-gen presentation, Sine Mora is a shoot ‘em up that appeals to both hardcore and the casual gamers.  The engrossing Story Mode weaves an over-the-top tale, presented as only Digital Reality and Grasshopper Manufacture could, while the Arcade Mode provides deep, satisfying gameplay to challenge fans of the genre.

Every life has a simple goal... to survive.

Ronotra Koss is a serial killer, hell-bent on revenge, blackmailing a young girl and smuggling military grade aibots.
Meanwhile, a phantom cell of time-travelling partisans is determined to infiltrate Siriad – the floating fortress guarding the peace and prosperity of their planet.
Argus Pytel, the Emperor's most talented Profiler, will stop at nothing to try to bring all of them to justice. In this complex tale of honor, bonds and morality, each player must ask themselves:

What would you do if you knew exactly how much time you had left?

Beyond its thrilling, high-flying gameplay, much of Sine Mora’s greatness is thanks to the intricately designed boss battles derived from the very concept work of Mahiro Maeda, the famous Japanese anime creator. Mr. Maeda’s credits include directing Blue Submarine No. 6, Final Fantasy: Unlimited and The Animatrix (segment: "The Second Renaissance Parts I and II"), as well as designing art for Neon Genesis Evangelion, Magic User’s Club and plenty more.

Internationally, he’s first and foremost known for the animation sequence in Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill Vol. 1.

Key Features:

  • Master Time to Survive: Unique, time extension based gameplay with multiple aircraft
  • Experience a New World:  Fight through seven beautifully crafted, diverse stages
  • Personalize your Arsenal:  Over 60 different weapon and time manipulating device combinations
  • Gameplay that Adapts to You: Multiple difficulty levels and a complex ranking system in Arcade Mode that adjusts enemy behavior to provide a challenge for even the most diehard shmup gamers
  • Theatrical Score: Music composed by legendary Sound Director of Silent Hill and Shadows of the Damned composer, Akira Yamaoka
  • A New Shooter for a New Era: Sine Mora’s amazing world is brought to life in jaw-dropping Stereoscopic 3D
