XS Games Announces The Release Of The Red Star
Previously released for the PlayStation 2, XS Games has announced that they will be releasing The Red Star in early Spring 2010. The Red Star, a mish-mash of shooter and fist fighting action based on the graphic novel by Christian Gossett, will be available for both the iPhone and the PSPgo. Compared to the PlayStation 2 though, this new release will showcase improved controls and cleaner visuals.
“The Red Star is a proudly old school combination of classic action genres, much in the spirit of Contra and Streets of Rage,” said Steve Grossman, Chief Executive Officer of XS Games. “PSP®go and iPhone are the perfect platforms for this game in terms of controls, visuals, and price.”
The Red Star is set into a war torn United Republics of the Red Star, an alternate reality that is in the midst of a violent conflict among the world’s most powerful nations. Soldier’s are being used as pawns by these nations, with advanced technology that controls their hidden mental powers.
