Press Release from Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc.
LOS ANGELES - April 13, 2009 - Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE, an upcoming downloadable game for Xbox LIVE Arcade for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation Network. As heavily equipped gunslingers, ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE sets players on a mission to destroy as many zombies as possible in order save the last remaining human survivors.
Using an array of up to 11 lethal weapons including assault rifles, flame throwers and a teddy bear filled with C4 explosives, up to four players can play locally or via the Internet to stop the zombie attacks and rescue survivors as they compete for the highest scores. Players can use a chainsaw to melee zombies and protect themselves against becoming one of the undead. As an added line of defense, players can also use environmental hazards to crush, burn, slice, or cause other types of destruction on the masses of zombies.
"Konami is committed to providing original, quality entertainment through our diverse offering of console, handheld and downloadable content," said Anthony Crouts, Vice President of Marketing for Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. "As a downloadable title, ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE delivers all the fun and action of a console game at a fraction of the cost."
The action-packed, arcade-style shooter will test gamers' dual analog stick shooting skills and ability to survive 55 days of battles across seven environments, all the while attempting to not become a brainless zombie. Upon completing the mission, players can re-live the apocalypse with seven challenging unlockable game modes.
ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE will be available in Q2 2009. To download assets, please visit: http://www.konami-data.com/pr/index.php
