This week’s PlayStation Store update is very thinky and very shooty. There’s definitely something for everyone… whether you love to use your head or shoot people in theirs.
The thinky side includes Child of Light (PS3, PS4), Ubisoft’s side-scrolling RPG; Daylight (PS4), Atlus’ procedurally-generated horror game; and Yu-Gi-Oh! Millenium Duels (PS3), the latest game in the popular CCG series.
The shooty side is a bit more full with vertically-scrolling shooter Raiden IV: Overkill (PS3), another game adaptation of Rambo (PS3), and the puzzle-shooting of PSone Classic Bust-A-Move 4 (PS3). Also, thugs are prone to shooting at Spider-Man, so let’s throw The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (PS3, PS4) in this category as well.
For those gamers who are looking for something completely different, this week’s final two releases don’t fit in either category. Bandai Namco’s JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle (PS3) is a fighting game based on the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure manga series and Dynasty Warriors 7: Xtreme Legends (PS3) is the latest game in the hack and slash series.
He’s no tourist and Reef Entertainment has announced that John Rambo will make his grand return to video games next month. Rambo: The Video Game will be released throughout Europe on February 21 for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. The game will be released in North America sometime in March (Amazon says March 25).
Rambo: The Video Game will follow everyone’s favorite one man army as he tears his way through a game adaptation of First Blood, Rambo: First Blood Part II, and Rambo III. To create the most authentic Rambo experience possible, Reef has packed Rambo: The Video Game with voice clips featuring Sylvester Stallone as Rambo and the late Richard Crenna as Colonel Trautman from all three films. The publisher will also include musical selections from each movie’s soundtrack in the game.
If you live in Europe, you can pre-order Rambo: The Video Game now. In addition to the game, you’ll receive two three-inch Rambo action figures based on the character’s appearance in First Blood and Rambo: First Blood Part II.
Nothing is over! But sadly, this news article is.
In the works for two years, Reef Entertainment has released the first trailer for Rambo: The Video Game today. The game is a first-person retelling of the first three Rambo films: First Blood, Rambo: First Blood Part II, and Rambo III.
Using their dialogue from the films, Rambo will feature the voice talents of Sylvester Stallone and the late Richard Crenna. It’ll be available this Winter in Europe for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. Hopefully, an American release will happen around the same time.
The character of John Rambo, adapted from David Morell’s novel First Blood and immortalised on the silver screen by Sylvester Stallone in numerous outings, has long been absent from video games. Despite a string of early releases on the NES and Sega Genesis, as well as the old home computer systems such as the Atari ST, ZX Spectrum, and Commadore 64, the character has never reconnected with consoles. Even when the last film, simply titled Rambo, was released in 2008, its only accompaniment was Rambo Arcade, a light gun game from Sega.
As Sly prepares to unleash The Expendables 2 on the world, Reef Entertainment has announced the first details for Rambo: The Video Game, which is currently in development by Polish outfit Teyon. The game will be based on the first three film entries: First Blood, Rambo: First Blood Part II and Rambo III. The “first person shooter with a fixed perspective” will see the one-man-army enter bloody shootouts, conduct stealth kills or generally cause destructive mayhem. Craig Lewis, Commercial Director for Reef Entertainment, sought to reassure fans of the cult classic that they would do it justice:
“For Rambo: The Video Game we are concentrating on authenticity to the films, variety of action and explosive gameplay sequences. By matching classic fixed-perspective play to a contemporary game engine we believe we can deliver a game that matches the pace and action set-piece diversity of the films.”
No release date has been given, but more information about the title, coming to PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, will be released during Gamescom in Cologne later this month.
With most of the big guns skipping Gamescom this year, they’ve left an open space that’ll be filled by the biggest gun of all… Rambo!
UK publisher Reef Entertainment has been very quiet about the game since announcing it last August, but they plan to bring a playable build of the action game to this year’s Gamescom expo. This year’s Gamescom expo will be held n Cologne, Germany from August 15-19.
Reef Entertainment Commercial Director Craig Lewis said: “We [are] dedicated to creating a video game for consoles and PC that will allow Rambo fans and gamers across the globe to really get under the skin of Rambo and wield his iconic weapon-set in battle.”
Rambo doesn’t have a release date and no American publisher has stepped forward to claim the game yet.
UK publisher Reef Entertainment has shared with MCV that they’ve acquired the rights to create a game based on the Rambo movies. Rambo is currently in development for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
No other details were revealed, but Reef executives believe a Rambo game will catapult them to worldwide promience.
“I am a big fan of Sylvester Stallone movies, and when we had the opportunity to secure the video game rights from StudioCanal for the Rambo franchise, we had to grab it with both hands,” said Reef Entertainment CEO Peter Rezon.
Reef’s Commercial Director, Craig Lewis, added: “Rambo will be a triple-A title on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC and will capture the gritty atmosphere and full-on action which made the Rambo movies so successful.”
