1000 Tiny Claws Tears its way onto PSN

14 th September 2011, London, UK. London-based development studio Mediatonic has announced 1000 Tiny Claws, its third PlayStation minis game for PlayStation Portable and PlayStation 3. 1000 Tiny Claws is a fast-paced arena brawler, putting the player into the shoes of Rana, a plucky sky pirate tasked with saving the lives of her ship’s crew by clearing stages infested with insectoid enemies – an accursed swarm that the crew may have accidentally released.  Featuring three main play modes and over 50 frantic levels, 1000 Tiny Claws will be available to purchase from the PSN store from Tuesday 4th October 2011 in the USA and Wednesday 5th October 2011 in the UK and Europe, priced at £1.99, 2.49 and $3.49 respectively.

1000 Tiny Claws sees Rana having to save her captain and crew from the hangman’s noose after a judge rules that they’re responsible for unleashing a swarm of insects that threaten to bring about the apocalypse. To save her crew, as well as the small matter of saving the world, Rana has to clear a series of floating islands by making sure the infernal enemies infesting each stage fall to their deaths. Rana can draw on her sky pirate’s toolbox of combos, running attacks, special moves and dodges to dispatch her many-clawed foes, and she must keep her cool as the action ramps up into wildly frantic territory if she wants to keep her crewmates alive and break the curse of the 1000 Tiny Claws for once and for all.

Following the success of Mediatonic’s other Minis titles, the award-winning Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess and Who’s That Flying?! , 1,000 Tiny Claws features the studio’s distinctive visual style and emphasis on strong characters with entertaining narratives, combined with its signature rock-solid play mechanics and a wealth of content beyond the main story mode. 1000 Tiny Claws will be available to purchase and download from the PSN store from Wednesday 5th October 2011 in the UK and Europe, and Tuesday 4th October 2011 in the USA, priced at £1.99, 2.49 and $3.49 respectively.
