TransWorld Surf coming to the PS2

  Infogrames has announced that they will be bringing the previously -believed to be- "exclusive" Xbox title, TransWorld Surf, to the Playstation 2. The game has a release date set for Spring 2002 and features 13 top-ranked surfers like Taj Burrow, Andy Irons, Shane Dorian, and many more to compete in a ten-city tour sponsored by TransWorld Surf magazine. Locations include Pipeline (Hawaii), Teahupoo (Tahiti), Kirra Point (Australia) and the all-new PlayStation 2-exclusive location, Todos Santos (Mexico), renowned for its giant and incredibly choppy waves. At each location, surfers must successfully complete a basic photo shoot before moving on to the competition. They will also face goal challenges such as completing trick combinations or freeing trapped dolphins from fishing nets.

   "TransWorld Surf has taken the gaming industry by storm with its incredible graphics and lifelike gameplay physics. The next logical step was to offer it to an even broader audience by bringing it to PlayStation 2," said Laddie Ervin, director of marketing for Infogrames' Los Angeles label. "TransWorld Surf immerses players into the surfing lifestyle like no other game. With the addition of the Todos Santos, Mexico location, the Shark Attack multiplayer mode and updated sponsors and licenses, PlayStation 2 owners are in for an insanely addictive and unique gaming experience."

   TransWorld Surf features seven unique gameplay modes, including single-player ProTour, Freesurf and Single Session modes, as well as two person multiplayer Freesurf, Competition, King of the Wave and the all new Playstation 2-exclusive Shark Attack mode. Shark Attack plays like "Tag" on the ocean -- the ultimate goal is to avoid being "it" longer than the other surfers.
