Sega Soccer Slam Is Coming To XBox!

SEGA ANNOUNCES THE CRITICALLY ACCLAMED SEGA SOCCER SLAM FOR XBOX AND PLAYSTATION 2 New Features Include Three New Secret Teams and New Mini-Games LOS ANGELES – Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) – (May 21, 2002) – SEGA ® of America, Inc. announced today it will release the genre-defying “SEGA ® Soccer Slam (tm)” for the Xbox (tm) video game system from Microsoft (tm) and the PlayStation (tm) 2 computer entertainment system this fall. Produced by Visual Concepts Entertainment and developed by Black Box Games, the new versions of “SEGA Soccer Slam” build on the fast-paced gameplay and vibrant visuals of the critically acclaimed Nintendo GameCube (tm) original, with deep gameplay modes, three new secret teams, two additional mini-games and graphics that take advantage of the hardware capabilities of each console. “The announcement of ‘SEGA Soccer Slam’ for Xbox and PlayStation 2 demonstrates SEGA’s commitment to delivering its original content to new users acrossall video game platforms,” said Tom Nichols, group director of sports marketing, SEGA of America, Inc. “The effusive style and entertaining gameplay in ‘SEGA Soccer Slam’ provides a high-quality gaming experience to video game and soccer fans alike.” While multiplayer matches provide outrageous fun, the single-player gameplay experience in “SEGA Soccer Slam” is enhanced in the Xbox and PlayStation 2 versions, with the inclusion of a variety of modes and features. An added Challenge Mode and revamped Arcade Mode join existing gameplay modes such as the Continental Cup Quest, Practice and Tournament. In the Challenge Mode gamers can build their own teams by custom selecting individual players from any of the existing soccer squads and competing in special matches where players can unlock one of the three new secret teams. The Arcade Mode gives easy access to single exhibition matches, lets users mix and match players from various teams and play the two new mini-games. “SEGA Soccer Slam” takes the world’s most popular sport to hilarious new heights, with its zany cast of characters, each with their own skills and irreverent personalities. In this 3-on-3 kickfest, players perform lightning quick rushes upfield, intense, high-impact tackles and Matrix-style spotlight kicks to place the ball firmly in the back of the net. Detailed character and stadium models, featuring fully polygonal fans that passionately chant and wave their teams’ flags ensure that the action off the field is as exciting as the action on field. “SEGA Soccer Slam” for Xbox and PlayStation 2 will be available at retailers nationwide this fall. The game is currently available for the Nintendo GameCube (tm).
