Xyanide Resurrection, for release in September 2007, is the PlayStation 2 version of the homonymous game for PSP, also being released by Atari Italy. Xyanide Resurrection is a Shoot’em Up that succeeds in combining the classic mechanisms of this genre with new technology, displayed in 15 spectacular levels and 3 dimensions. The gamer’s task is to find and capture the wicked witch Aguira, who possesses mystical powers capable of creating new worlds and dangerous creatures in attempt to obstruct the hunt.
The long-awaited Obscure II for PS2 and PC, due out in September 2007, is the continuation of the esteemed survival horror Obscure, revealing one of the most pleasant surprises in this genre. After the disturbing first chapter adventures staged at a high school, the survivors find themselves faced with yet other terrorizing threat on the campus of Fallcreek University. For the first time in a survival horror, cooperative play-modes will be available: allowing a friend to enter into the game at any time to help the main player advance within the adventure. There are 6 different characters with unique abilities, endless action and adventure, strange creatures and fights, all set in a "teen horror movie" ambient. Add all that to the spectacular soundtrack performed by the Boston Symphonic Orchestra and the Paris Opera's Children's Choir, and you’ve got the unique atmosphere of Obscure II, one of the most anticipated titles of this autumn.
