Unison slated for American PS2.
Tecmo has recently announced the release of Unison: Rebels of Rhythm and Dance in North America. The PlayStation 2 music/dance title is atypical to say the least, throwing gamers 200 years into the future where dancing has been outlawed by an evil dictator. (Where was he when disco was around?) The player must assume the role of a member of a Unison dance team, which attempts to show the rhythm-deprived souls of the future the joyous catharsis of, well, dance. A Tecmo representative also recently confirmed that the North American version of the title will boast eight additional songs performed by their actual artists. Unison will also feature four tracks from the Japanese edition. Further enhancements include an easy mode, more freedom in the training mode (including the ability to forego the former prerequisite altogether), and the ability to enjoy any of Unison's completed songs in full. Graphically, the American release of Unison will boast only minor alterations.
"What truly sets Unison apart from any other dancing game is the awesome blend of multimedia," explained John Inada, Tecmo's marketing director. "The stunning realism of the graphics, the array of original dance songs, and the electrifying plot take this title to all-new levels. And die-hard fans of Japanese anime will be in for a treat, too."
Unison: Rebels of Rhythm will drop in March, carrying an MSRP of $49.95.
