SCEA officially announces The Mark of Kri for the PS2. Full story.
Sony Computer Entertainment America has officially announced The Mark of Kri, a combat styled game with hints of strategy throughout. Gamers take on the role of Rau, an archaic warrior accompanied by a friendly large black bird. Environments include forests, mountain cliffs, cavernous paths, waterfalls, and streams. Rau showcases four powerful weapons, a broadsword, bow and arrow, battle axe and the New Zealand Taiaha (spear). The game offers a very free-flowing style, as the characters fight with large swoops of their weapons and drawn-out steps to attack enemies. As one progresses, more weapon attacks are gained.
"With its unique combat system and intense strategic adventure, The Mark of Kri really is the thinking man's fighting game," said Ami Blaire, director, product marketing, SCEA. "We are adding a truly unique title to the PlayStation 2 library that takes a whole new approach to adventure and action-fighting gaming never seen before."
The Mark of Kri is set to be at E3 this May and will ship in June 2002.
