Infogrames has announced that Splashdown is currently being developed for the Xbox. In this Sea-Doo watercraft-based racing game, players can select from eight riders who have different attributes and skills, as well as a unique set of tricks. There will also be a number of riders who will be unlocked as players progress through the game. Splashdown features 18 environments, as well as two that have been specifically designed for the Xbox version of the game. The game will also have career, versus, and arcade modes.
"Splashdown has become one of the premier water sport franchises in video gaming," said Jean-Philippe Agati, senior vice president and general manager of Infogrames' Los Angeles studio. "Xbox gamers are in for an amazing experience--we have taken our critically acclaimed PlayStation 2 game and pushed it to the next level, creating an even more extreme aquatic playground. Fast-paced and exhilarating, this is water racing like it's never been done before!"
Splashdown for the Xbox is scheduled for release this summer
