E3 2010: New Time Crisis Compatible With Move, Guncon 3
There are a lot of games coming for the PlayStation Move, but even if you watched Sony's press conference, you might have missed a significant one...
They didn't talk about it at the time, but a shot of what seemed to be a new Time Crisis appeared during a Move-compatible montage of titles. I remember sort of half paying attention as I was writing another story, but I'm pretty sure I caught it out of the corner of my eye... Things got hectic after that and I wasn't reminded again until a reader sent us the information that Namco Bandai had indeed announced Time Crisis: Razing Storm. It will come exclusively to the PlayStation 3 this fall and in addition to working with Move, it will also be - shock of shocks - compatible with Namco's Guncon 3 light gun accessory. The storyline is hardly important but for the sake of details: a special task force has been dispatched to South America to foil a plot to topple the US. The mastermind of said plot is your target and of course, a whole lot of baddies stand between you and him.
There will be an Arcade mode (just waves and waves of enemies) but we'll also get the benefit of a free-roaming Story mode, which lets you hunt down the villain through a bunch of diverse, destructible environments, all the while using that familiar cover and auto-look mechanic. Lastly, Namco will introduce an online multiplayer component, where up to 8 players can engage in cooperative and competitive battles, and that sounds like a big draw. ...just don't cringe when you see the screens; this is Time Crisis, not God of War.
