Activision has confirmed that it has secured the North American publishing rights to Bloody Roar for the GameCube. For its North American release, the game, titled Bloody Roar Extreme in Japan, will be renamed to Bloody Roar: Primal Fury. Bloody Roar: Primal Fury joins Activision's lineup of seventeen games the company plans to release for Nintendo's console.
"As one of 16 characters, each with their own human and hyper-beast forms, Bloody Roar: Primal Fury for the Nintendo GameCube lets gamers engage in fast and furious battles," said Larry Goldberg, executive vice president of Activision Worldwide Studios. "By combining exclusive features with the platform's graphical and technological advancements, this version will be the most spectacular and challenging yet."
The GameCube version of Bloody Roar includes new characters, stages, and special attacks. The game will also take advantage of the GameCube hardware, improving on visuals seen in the original PlayStation 2 game. Bloody Roar: Primal Fury will have five single-player modes and two two-player head-to-head modes. The game will be released in Spring 2002 in North America.
