KONAMI TEAMS UP WITH WORLD-RENOWNED ACTION FIGURE CREATOR/ARTIST TODD MCFARLANE TO SUMMON MCFARLANE'S EVIL PROPHECY
GAMERS COMBAT LEGENDARY MONSTERS IN NEW ACTION TITLE FOR PLAYSTATION® 2
Konami Corporation today offered game fans a first look at McFarlane's Evil Prophecy for the Sony PlayStation® 2. Scheduled to ship in November 2003, this action-fighting game is inspired by the unique McFarlane's Monsters line of action figures from McFarlane Toys.
"We are thrilled to bring the McFarlane Monsters to life in McFarlane's Evil Prophecy. Only in this videogame will players experience McFarlane's creepy, dark world in real time," said Wilson Cheng, Product Manager at Konami of America, Inc. "Todd McFarlane has a unique take on these classic monsters and he has infused his vision of them with unprecedented detail. His vision translates perfectly into a top-notch action game."
McFarlane's Evil Prophecy is set in the early 19th Century, during a time when six evil forces have awakened. Controlling four McFarlane-designed monster hunters with magical powers, gamers must destroy the evil forces and their minions before they overtake the world. Gamers step into this environment and face off against more than 150 monsters, including six beasts from McFarlane's Monsters line of action figures: Dracula, Mummy, Werewolf, Frankenstein, Sea Creature and Voodoo Queen.
The monster hunters come equipped with their own special attacks, as well as specific strengths and weaknesses. Armed with an arsenal of deadly moves, making the decision of which attack to use in a situation becomes a challenge. The hunting troupe will also face intelligent monsters equipped with their own fighting strategies as they work their way through the adventure. As a result, combat with the monsters becomes an intuitive, intense party-based melee that is as action packed as it is fun.
Featuring more than six challenging areas, McFarlane's Evil Prophecy also includes hidden bonus elements, as well as a non-linear game structure that allows players to experience the title's 40 stages in any order they wish, guaranteeing a unique experience every time the game is played. Along with first-rate fighting skills and quick-thinking strategy, players will have to manage their health and solve puzzles in order to succeed in McFarlane's Evil Prophecy. PlayStation® 2 fans can choose to go it alone or use the multi-player mode for cooperative play with up to three other gamers using the PlayStation® 2 Multitap Adapter.
