Interplay's Four-Way Fighter
Interplay plans to break the conventions of fighting games in not one, but two, ways with new title Raze.
Interplay revealed to GS News today that it plans to break the conventions of fighting games in not one, but two, ways with its new PlayStation title Raze. To begin with, it's a four-player fighting game, and yes, those characters all share the same screen. Second, it's purportedly a true 3-D fighter, much like Square's Bushido Blade, where characters can climb, run, and jump in a three-dimensional world. Unlike BB though, they'll actually have to turn and attack their foes manually; there's no cheap default for them to fall back on.
The title is currently set in TSR's Forgotten Realms role-playing universe (Interplay is currently going through the approval process with the company's new owners, Wizards of the Coast), and will use such D&D standbys as magic, rings, artifacts, and the building of character attributes, which will be saveable to the PlayStation's memory cards.
The game's storyline is not yet set in stone. No screenshots were available at press time, but you can be sure to have a look at the title through our upcoming E3 coverage.
