Konami ships Nano Breaker
Action title from Castlevania producer now available for the PS2; cyborg hero uses shape-shifting plasma blade to save humankind.
Konami Digital Entertainment America today announced that its science fiction action title Nano Breaker has hit retail stores. Developed by Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo, the PlayStation 2 title comes from the mind of Koji Igarashi, the producer of the long-running Castlevania franchise.
Gamers will play as Jake Warren, a military cyborg brought out of cryogenic sleep to help save the world. When the government loses control of its highly prized nanomachines, the tiny robots take over living hosts, turning them into walking robo-zombies. Jake is called into action and asked to stop the menace before it wipes out the entire planet.
Jake comes armed with a shape-shifting plasma blade, his weapon of choice. The flexibility of the blade allows him to slice, grab, and smash enemies, as well as deliver some acrobatic combo moves.
Nano Breaker is rated "M" for Mature and retails for $39.99. For more information on the game, be sure to check out GameSpot's previous coverage and full review, which will go up later today.
