IT’S ALL GOING DOWN IN CHINATOWN, WITH KUNG FU STRIKE: THE WARRIOR’S RISE FOR XBOX LIVE® ARCADE

GRAPEVINE, TX – February 9 th, 2012 –  7sixty and developer Qooc Soft are pleased to announce that: man with lightning quick fists lands lightly as lotus blossom on mystical heavens market, ready to demonstrate his willingness for vengeful combat. Or, if you’re one of few not versed in ancient Chinese proverbs: 7sixty and Qooc Soft are pleased to announce that Kung Fu Strike: The Warrior’s Rise is heading to Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft early this year.

Taking its inspiration from ancient Chinese tales of revenge and retribution then adding a dash of over-the-top martial arts movies and old school arcade fun, Kung Fu Strike is a fast-paced beat-‘em-up where the player can seamlessly blend powerful punches, high kicks and perfectly timed blocks to pull off combos that devastate hordes of enemies. This is all thanks to a fluid combat system that turns brawling into an art form… OF PAIN.

Alongside the tight combat system and art style inspired by Chinese calligraphy, Kung Fu Strike features unlockable techniques that add to the repertoire of agony for your enemies, support characters that can be called in to help when your fists fail you and special equipment that can potentially turn the tide of battle. What’s more, if you’re too weak and puny to go it alone, there is local two-player co-op and versus mode to prove you are the martial arts maestro.

Kung Fu Strike tells the story of General Loh, a warrior struggling to avenge his father’s death while around him ancient China spirals out of control due to warring factions that threaten to split the country apart. Will Loh find out who is responsible for his father’s death? Can he save his homeland from destruction? And will he ever discover what the mysterious ‘Zen Room of Emptiness’ is?
