Atari games playable at Comic Con
Gamers will be able to get their hands on upcoming Atari titles at New York convention; Godzilla: Unleashed also to be shown.
Bullet Witch, Godzilla: Unleashed, and Dragon Ball Z Shin Budokai: Another Road will all be shown to the public for the first time at the New York Comic Con 2007. Bullet Witch and Dragon Ball Z Shin Budokai: Another Road are likely to be playable, says Atari, and there will also be a nonplayable demo of Godzilla: Unleashed.
Godzilla: Unleashed was recently announced by the company for the Wii, DS, and PlayStation Portable, and will be released in "fall 2007." Gamers play as Godzilla, or a choice of other giant monsters, and rampage through a series of cityscapes wreaking destruction. Bullet Witch is an Xbox 360 title, and has just gone gold--it is due for release in the US on February 27. The game describes itself as "a neo-apocalyptic action adventure," and blends Japanese fantasy with "American action." Dragon Ball Z Shin Budokai: Another Road is the latest release in the popular Dragon Ball Z series, and features 50 new fighting skills and ultimate attacks. The title is due for release in March 2007 for the PSP.
Atari's vice president of marketing and sales, Nique Fajors, commented, "While Godzilla: Unleashed, Bullet Witch, and DBZ Shin Budokai: Another Road offer different gameplay features, storylines, and visual flair, all three share a common bond of Japanese art and influence--a bond that has been extremely prevalent in comics and other popular art forms."
The New York Comic Con 2007 will be held February 23-25 at the Jacob Javits Center.
