Free RunningTM, the smash-hit extreme sports game on PS2 and PSP, is heading (and leaping) to WiiTM, DSTM and PC formats in Q2 2009!
Peter Rezon, Reef Entertainment Managing Director said,“Following the success of Free RunningTM across Europe, we’ve wanted to expand the game’s formats, and at the same time, play to each formats strengths. So with the WiiTM version for example, similar to our recent release Rogue Trooper®: Quartz Zone Massacre, we’ve utilised the Wii controllers to great effect, making the Free RunningTM experience unique to WiiTM. We now have physical interface which works brilliantly with the extreme sport which is Free Running!”
In addition, both the Nintendo DSTM and PC version have been given an overhaul in terms of gameplay, graphical look and feel.
Peter concludes,“We’ve refreshed the overall brand messaging with these versions. We wanted to get to closer to the players who are doing the sport for real, so we’re also talking to existing Free Running teams and organisations to help with our current and long-term strategies for the franchise. We’ve focused very closely on maintaining the exciting pace, graphical looks, atmosphere and attitude that made the original games so popular and we’re very much looking forward to building on our WiiTM, PC and Nintendo DSTM portfolio with another innovative and original title.”
Free RunningTM will be launched across Europe Q2 2009.
