Title long mired in release hell now finally coming out.
XS Games today officially announced the signing of a deal with Archangel Studios and writer Christian Gossett to publish games based upon the comic series The Red Star. The game is the very same one that never saw release because of the original Acclaim's bankruptcy in 2004. The Red Star takes place in an alternate universe where heroes fight for the freedom of the U.R.R.S. using advance technology and arcane magic.
"The Red Star is an exciting title that we're thrilled to be bringing to gamers," said Steve Grossman, CEO of XS Games. "Its unique combination of combat and shooter gameplay styles and the rich universe of its comic book heritage delivers an experience unrivaled on PlayStation 2."
The Red Star will release on PS2 on April 24, 2007.
