AU Shippin' Out March 30-April 3: Wanted: Weapons of Fate
Curve bullets this week in the latest movie tie-in game.
We've seen some massive games released in Australia in the past few weeks, and though things are starting to slow down, there are still a few standout titles coming out. Action gamers may be interested at the prospect of the latest movie tie-in game Wanted: Weapons of Fate, while Square Enix fans will be pleased to note that Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time is due out later this week.
Picking up just hours after the film ended, Wanted: Weapons of Fate tells story of Wesley Gibson, a super-assassin who is out to find out the truth behind his mother's death. Like in the movie, Wesley has the ability to curve bullets and he has a Max Payne-esque slow-mo ability. Wanted: Weapons of Fate is due out on the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 this Wednesday.
The fourth game in the Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles spin-off series is due out later this week for the Nintendo DS and Wii. It's called Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time. Square Enix has gone to great lengths to make sure that both versions play nigh on identically, so much so that the Wii version features two different playing boxes, simulating the dual screens of the DS. As far as the story goes, Echoes of Time isn't that big of a departure from other FF games, following the standard transformation of boy to man, and along the way he's asked to save his friend from a mysterious "crystal sickness." Expect to see Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time out on April 2.
