Crank The Weasel To Make A Debut

Crank the Weasel, the videogame character you "hate to love" is set to make a debut on all next-gen consoles. Crank The Weasel is in developement and set for a 2003 release. Set in the dark metropolitan world of Scratchtown, Crank the Weasel challenges players to claw, kick and cheat their way to the top. Cast in the role of Crank, a devilish anti-hero who will steal your heart and your wallet, players execute a plan to escape the horrors of big city life and retire to the ultimate fantasy destination of Pleasure Island. There is only one problem: Crank is flat broke and will need to rob anyone with a buck and steal anything that’s not nailed down if he is going to raise the million and one dollars needed for an airline ticket to paradise. “Crank The Weasel is the first twisted action-platform videogame to feature the ultimate ‘dirty dog’ anti-hero you hate yourself for loving,” said Helene Sheeler, vice president of marketing, Midway. “His bad attitude and cutthroat antics make him the coolest character in the videogame market.” Using special abilities, various modes of transportation, gadgets, and street smarts to do anything and everything to get out of Scratchtown, players fight, thieve, and deceive characters for valuables to be sold for hard cold cash at the Pawn Shop. Players progress through incredibly detailed urban structures in three Scratchtown districts – Downtown, Midtown and Uptown –encountering other characters with advanced personalities who make on-the-fly decisions based on how the game is played.
