TDK Mediactive Ships Robotech: Battlecry

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif.--Sept. 23, 2002--TDK Mediactive Inc., a global publisher of entertainment software, announced that Robotech®: Battlecry(TM) has shipped for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system and the Xbox(TM) video game system from Microsoft. "We set out to create a title which would deliver amazing gameplay, stellar visuals and live up to the expectations of the loyal Robotech fan base," said Stefan Serwe, vice president of marketing, TDK Mediactive. "We are confident that core gamers, fans of the original animated series and anyone who enjoys exciting action titles will love this game." Developed for TDK Mediactive by Vicious Cycle, Robotech: Battlecry is a fast paced, third-person action shooter based on the extremely popular animated TV series. Players assume the role of a new character Jack Archer, a fighter pilot in the Robotech Defense Force. As the intense storyline unfolds, Jack battles it out with the invading Zentraedi(TM) alien armada utilizing his versatile Veritech(TM) Fighter, a giant transformable mechanized robot that can convert into a high-flying jet fighter, a 40-foot tall humanoid robot, or a hybrid unit that combines elements of both. With a plot set parallel to the original TV show, Jack encounters classic Robotech characters including Rick Hunter, Lynn Minmei, Lisa Hayes and even old foes such as Khyron. The stylized, cel shaded animation spans more than 45 missions set in city ruins, canyons, the skies above Macross City, space, foreign planets and the rings of Saturn. The game is full of unlockable features, including interviews with many of the voice actors from the original Robotech series, who also lend their talents to the video game. In addition, multiple Veritech models and dozens of designs can be unlocked, such as the cult-classic "Skull One(TM)." The game also features a split screen versus mode. Two players can go head-to-head in a number of great battle environments while piloting Veritech fighters or even Zentraedi female power armor. A special Collector’s Edition of Robotech: Battlecry is available exclusively through Electronics Boutique and GameStop. The limited edition box set is packed with bonuses, including the game’s soundtrack, an exclusive t-shirt, art and more. Robotech: Battlecry is also scheduled to release on the Nintendo GameCube® along with Robotech®: The Macross Saga(TM) for Game Boy® Advance in October.
