"Soccer has the highest participation rate of any sport in the world today," said David Knies, Director of Acclaim Sports. "We're taking a fresh approach with Urban Freestyle Soccer by moving the game off of the grass and onto the streets, and infusing it with fast and addictive arcade-style gameplay that will appeal to the masses and soccer fans alike."

Urban Freestyle Soccer includes:

-- First-ever 4-on-4, arcade-style street soccer gameplay;
-- 10 gang-style teams, each with their own home playing fields and theme music;
-- Five hard-hitting game modes: Home Turf, Versus Mode, Freestyle, Street Challenge, Training plus Mini-Games;
-- Over 50 players, each with individual catch phrases, tricks, combos and special moves;
-- Supercharged "Netbuster" power-up tricks for record-breaking high scores;
-- Dynamic, two-layered combo system which earns team points;
-- Visually stunning urban environments with objects and boundaries that provide unique home field advantages.

Urban Freestyle Soccer will be available this fall across the next-generation systems at suggested retail prices to be determined.
