Xicat Interactive, Inc is set to release "Blackstone: Magic & Steel" and "Metal Dungeon" for the Xbox in North America in late November 2002.

Black Stone will cast a spell on fans of Japanese anime with the characters and lush environments of Zedan, while Metal Dungeon offers a gruesome, post-apocalyptic world and unleashes RPG action in this Sci-fi thriller of twisted robotic cyborgs. For an in depth “tour” of either game, Mike Bellhorn, lead producer is available to lend his insights to the magic and darkness that define each of the games characteristics.

About Black Stone: Magic and Steel:

In Blackstone: Magic and Steel you must heed the call of the White Wizards to protect all that is good. Raise your weapons, memorize your spells and charge ahead as you begin your quest to find the magic stones and save the world of Zedan. Black Stone: Magic & Steel is rated Teen for Blood and Violence.

About Metal Dungeon:

Far into the future, Alansas is ravaged by war and chaos. Teams of enhanced humans (cyborgs) are enlisted to take back the underground weapons complex known as Force Valley after one of the experiments escapes and takes over the facility. The escapee creates an army of enhanced weapon monsters who are not quite ready to vacate their newfound “home”. Players assemble a team of elite cyborgs to plunge into the depths and root out the monsters. Metal Dungeon is rated Teen for Blood and Violence.
