The Bouncer to support Dolby 5.1.
Since the title's announcement, Square's The Bouncer has been one of the most hyped titles for Sony's PlayStation 2. While the release date fluctuated, the bubbling anticipation among gamers never wavered. As the release date for the upcoming blockbuster draws nearer, Square has stepped forth to reveal more and more about the title. Recently, Square announced that The Bouncer will ship with Dolby 5.1 surround sound capability for its American release.
"Our commitment to giving gamers the best and most realistic gaming experience led us to use Dolby Digital 5.1 sound for The Bouncer," stated Takashi Tokita, the title's director. "Dolby Digital draws the player right into the action with the sounds of the colossal aircraft engine, gigantic explosions and ambient street life."
While the title is already available in Japan, American gamers must slaver until March to get their hands on Square's cinematic brawler.
