Rising Star Games Have Released New Screenshots And Revealed The Boxart For Eldar Saga

Rising Star Games have released new screenshots and revealed the Boxart for their upcoming Nintendo Wii Game, Eldar Saga. As i have not covered this game before, i have included a fact sheet below that Rising Star Games had previously released. Eldar Saga is a classic RPG designed for the Wii. as well as having single player gameplay, you can play quests with another player via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.

In Eldar Saga you get to play as any character in the party and you are able to customise each of those characters with weapons and equipment. the battles are real time and enemies are visible in the world, which means there are no random battles.


Fact Sheet

It is up to you to take up the forgotten mantle of the hero, reunite the races, confront the hordes of monsters and restore peace to the land. Eldar Saga is a classic RPG designed specifically for the Nintendo Wii and its RPG-starved users, allowing players to experience epic story-driven gameplay as well as the opportunity to quest together via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection

The Lands of Eldar have long been known as the origin of chaos, a place where monsters and demons wreak havoc, indiscriminate in their madness. Legend tells of how the Spirit King, whose coming was heralded by a meteor shower, gained control of the creatures and waged an unrelenting war upon civilization. Order and life were brought to the brink of destruction, but an alliance of the four races was able to drive them back and seal the evil. Centuries more have passed and once again the lands are slowly being over-run by the re-emerging monsters. Without a known cause or even a united front to repel them, it would seem that this time, Eldar will fall. It is up to you to take up the forgotten mantle of the hero, reunite the races, confront the hordes of monsters and restore peace to the land.
- Multi-generational storyline: play as any character in the party as the story progresses

- Fully customisable characters: 5 basic classes and numerous advanced classes, specific skills, weapons and equipment

- Real-time battles on the field map, with visible enemies and no random encounters

- Find your perfect combination of race and job class to build your own battle party

- Party up with a second player online to explore the land of Eldar with co-op play

Press Release

OTLEY, WEST YORKSHIRE, UK – 3rd September, 2010 – Just Add Water (JAW) is thrilled to announce the return of the critically-acclaimed Oddworld series - with an enhanced remake of the award-winning Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath coming to PlayStation®3 next Easter.

Originally released in 2005, first- and third-person action-adventure Stranger’s Wrath marks the multi-million-selling series’ first appearance on a PlayStation® console since 1998’s Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus. The game will be made available as a digital download via PlayStation® Network.

Stewart Gilray, Managing Director of JAW, said: “Since word got out that we’ve been working with Oddworld Inhabitants there have been many rumours circulating about what we’re working on. Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath is the first project in what we believe will be a long and fruitful relationship. Having the chance to update this great title and release it on PS3 is just a brilliant opportunity, not least for us, but for the fans too.”

JAW has worked closely with Oddworld founders Lorne Lanning and Sherry McKenna to ensure the remake is faithful to the original moolah-chasing epic, while offering a raft of enhancements, including: stunning 720p visuals; much more detail in the characters; normal mapping and self-shadowing; re-mastered dialogue, support for PlayStation®Move; and additional bonus material still to be revealed.

In Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath, players step into the role of the Stranger, a rough and tumble bounty hunter who tracks down outlaws for moolah. Using a special weapons system that gives a whole new meaning to "live" ammo, players encounter deviant species and hostile challenges along the way.

The 2005 original has a Metacritic rating of 88, was nominated for Outstanding Achievement in Animation at the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences' Interactive Achievement Awards, and received numerous awards from the gaming press.

[ABOUT JAW] Boasting over 100 years' combined development experience, from handheld projects all the way to multi-format AAA titles, the JAW team’s portfolio includes releases such as: Pinball Fantasies, Spec Ops, PowerMonger, Synnergist and Soldier of Fortune.
