LUCHA FURY BODY SLAMS ITS WAY ONTO XBOX LIVE ARCADE

LOS ANGELES­ - June 22, 2011 - Put down the nachos and grab a can of Pollojo! Lucha Fury, the intense, side-scrolling beat-em-up from developer Punchers Impact, is now available on Xbox Live Arcade for 800 Microsoft Points. Combining the style and grace of Lucha Libre with a healthy dose of crude humor, Lucha Fury supports up to four-player cooperative play and pits players against a bevy of baddies and a plethora of poultry.

In the world of Lucha Fury, the lost, ancient recipe for Pollojo, the nectar of the gods, is discovered by a struggling bar owner, who turns it into a highly successful energy drink. The gods, however, are not so happy about humans stealing their drink, and they set out to reclaim what is theirs - destroying humanity in the process. Four masked luchadores, having never accomplished much of anything in the past, suddenly find themselves without Pollojo and are sparked into battle to take down the old gods and return with their precious energy drink, possibly saving the world along the way.

Lucha Fury Features:

·Four distinctive player-controlled luchadores, each with their own special moves

·Dozens of unique moves and combos that feature a mix of traditional fighting style (punch/kick/grab) and wild Lucha inspired moves (Planchas, Submissions, Aerials, etc.)

·Highly detailed and colorful, comic-style animation

·Intuitive controls that allow for fighting-game style moves and combos

·Up to four-player cooperative play

Developed by Punchers Impact, Lucha Fury is available now on Xbox Live Arcade for 800 Microsoft Points. For more information, please visit
