Splashdown To Wet Xbox Fans

Atari’s Award-Winning Sea-Doo® Racing Game Races to Xbox This Summer With New Characters, Environments LOS ANGELES – April 2, 2002 – Squeegee your TV ‘cause Xbox is getting wet. Infogrames, Inc. (Nasdaq: IFGM), a leading global publisher of interactive entertainment software, is adding another smash title to its Atari® lineup this summer when its wild water racer, Splashdown™, races onto the Xbox™ video game system from Microsoft. Complete with authentic Sea-Doo® watercraft, a crazy cast of characters and the most insane waters found on Earth, Splashdown brings the speed and skill of watercraft racing to the stunning world of Xbox. “Splashdown has become one of the premier water sport franchises in video gaming,” said Jean-Philippe Agati, senior vice president and general manager of Infogrames’ Los Angeles studio. “Xbox gamers are in for an amazing experience -- we have taken our critically acclaimed PlayStation®2 game and pushed it to the next level, creating an even more extreme aquatic playground. Fast-paced and exhilarating, this is water racing like its never been done before!” Splashdown whisks players to the four corners of the globe through 18 detailed race environments. Racers will blast through the waters of Bali, skim along the Great Barrier Reef and navigate the canals of Venice. The Xbox version introduces two new eye-popping courses, Ruminer Point, Maine and The Keys, Florida, and features bigger waves for players to catch massive air for tricks and jumps. With more than forty tracks and tons of shortcuts and hidden areas, Splashdown is loaded to the gills with a variety of challenges and amazing scenery. Eight over-the-top characters from around the world take players on a spin around the track. To keep the action hot, each character is armed with special abilities in speed, handling, stunts and agility. Each performs unique stunts like the heart attack, superman and rollover. Racers Andy Pierce, Hailey Hollister, Kyoko Takahashi, Jeremy Wallace, Amman Ra, Sebastien Kleinemann and a secret unlockable character return to vie for the number one spot in circuit and career modes. The power and unique handling of four authentic Sea-Doo® watercraft classes gives players maximum control as they attempt 30 acrobatic stunts including “signature tricks” like Handlebar Handstand, Lazy Boy and Metronome. Completing crazy stunts pushes the performance meter to the limit. Extra power on the performance meter skyrockets the trickmasters’ Sea-Doo® watercraft to gravity-defying speeds and gives them the edge over the competition. Splashdown has three main modes: Career, Versus, and Arcade. In Career mode, the player has the opportunity to prove single-player prowess, building a team and vying for the championship of the water racing circuit. Meanwhile, Arcade mode makes competition personal with four intense events, including Circuit, Time Trials, Countdown and Free Ride. Along the way, players can collect up to five new wetsuits placed around each course. Versus mode pits two players against each other in a head-to-head showdown. Three difficulty levels, hilarious character dialogue and spectacular wrecks and bails complete this wild water racer for timeless entertainment and unparalleled fun. In development at award-winning Rainbow Studios, the masterminds behind the PlayStation 2 game, Splashdown for Xbox will begin drenching players this Summer. NOTE: We've also received two (2) brand new Xbox Splashdown screenshots, enjoy!
