TWIN BLADES coming soon on Minis (PSP/PS3)

November 19, 2010

Bulkypix, Press Start Studio and Sanuk Games are happy to announce that the frantic shooter TWIN BLADES will be released soon on Sony’s Minis platform for PSP and PS3.

Help Sister Angelika defeat evil with some heavy zombie-killing action! Venture across multiple locations to purge the town of all its living-dead inhabitants. Refill your energy by slicing zombies with your mighty scythe, then unleash the destructive powers of your artillery!

Set in a medieval fantasy world where walking corpses, limbs torn apart and splatters of blood are all drawn in a superb manga style, TWIN BLADES has all it takes to please hardcore gamers seeking strong visual experiences. Its eclectic inspirations ranging from Japanese anime subculture to Italian adult movies are the hallmark of men of good taste.

“We’re very excited to bring TWIN BLADES to Playstation Minis” says Philippe Rapin, co-founder of Press Start Studio,“Sanuk Games has a proven track record of delivering quality ports and the Playstation ergonomics makes it a platform of choice for such an action-packed game.”

TWIN BLADES’ immersive storyline will take you through 10 breathtaking locations by day and night, where you will fight scores of zombies and epic bosses. With 6 weapons ranging from machine gun to explosive nukes, and 11 skills to buy and upgrade, you will purify the city of Jalombe from the seeds of corruption.

Previously released on various smartphones and on Xbox Live, TWIN BLADES was praised for setting a new visual quality standard for independent games. Levi Buchanan of ign.com called it a“fun zombie roaster with gorgeous artwork”, noting that“raking a scythe across a zombie boss is always good entertainment, really.”

The release date and price of TWIN BLADES on Playstation Minis will be announced shortly.
