For the first time ever Playstation Move Heroes will crossover characters of Playstation’s iconic gaming franchises, Ratchet & Clank, Jak & Daxter, and Sly Cooper – all in one that is set to raise the bar in crossover compilation games designed and built from the ground up exclusively for the Playstation Move.
Ratchet, Clank, Jak, Daxter, Sly, and Bentley (the heroes in this game) are swept across the galaxy by a mysterious alien duo that have snatched up the worlds of Ratchet, Jak and Sly in order to create a mysterious new planet in the galaxy. After being abducted by the duo, Ratchet, Clank, Jak, Daxter, Sly and Bentley are invited by the alien hosts to compete in a ‘friendly’, yet challenging competition to test their extraordinary skills but of cause all is not as it seems. And it’s up to the heroes to join together in the ultimate battle to protect the galaxy. It will be interesting to see how each different franchise will fit in with one another in what is tipped to be the ultimate crossover. Players will control each character in a series of competitive challenges and events, mixing combat and platforming gameplay with one another. Each character brings with their unique personalities, strengths, and signature weapons in levels based around familiar landscapes from each franchise.
Fans will be pleased to know that Metropolis from Ratchet & Clank, Haven City from Jak & Daxter and Paris from Sly Cooper have been adapted into the game, with each of them having a unique visual theme and destructive elements set to their franchise. It is also good to see that the game will feature Co-Op gameplay, allowing players to team up with a friend to work their way through each mission. Complete these will unlock medels using the game’s level scoring and online ranking boards which will show how players stack-up against other players on the network. Overall Playstation Move Heroes looks to be a great platformer for the system and will really test Move’s capabilities.
Playstation Move Heroes is set to be release on April 30, 2011.
