FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CERGY-PONTOISE, FRANCE– 29 March 2010–NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe S.A.S.., announced today that Dead to Rights™: Retribution has gone gold for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. A reimagining of the multi-million unit selling crime-action series, Dead to Rights: Retribution puts players in control of two playable characters, vice cop Jack Slate and his canine companion Shadow, as they fight to uncover a conspiracy that threatens to destroy Grant City. Deadly on their own, Jack and Shadow are even more formidable as they team up in this no-holds-barred neo-noir journey.
Gameplay in Dead to Rights: Retribution is brutal and relentless, with a seamless combat system that allows players to fluidly transition between third-person shooting, hand-to-hand combat and AI partner control. Jack has a myriad of tools available to him that can be used in any combination, offering a wide variety of choice in how he can dispatch enemies in any combat situation. Players will also have the ability to play as a ferocious canine, Shadow. At various points in the story, the gameplay switches up as players take control of Shadow, interjecting a completely different style of combat than Jack’s. Shadow utilizes his heightened senses to stalk enemies with his stealth abilities and tears enemies apart with his visceral attacks.
