Everblue headed to Europe
Capcom Eurosoft has announced that Everblue for the PS2 will be released in Europe this spring. The game is developed by Akira, popularly known as the creators of the Street Fighter EX series. Everblue is based on the character Leonardo, who must explore and discover the magic and mysteries of the Daedalus Sea as a novice undersea diver. Players will be able to purchase different items to upgrade their character and can also interact with different townspeople along the way. These people may prove very important, as they can have hints to hidden treasure. The main goal of the game is to discover buried treasure, but there's also a mode called free swim mode where players can simply swim at their leisure.
"Everblue is a truly unique title for the PlayStation 2," commented David Miller, marketing director of Capcom Eurosoft. "Not only is it the first diving adventure game on the system, but its mixture of adventure and RPG elements, combined with the attention to detail of the underwater scenes, give it wide-reaching appeal."
