FREE RUNNING LEAPS ONTO NINTENDO Wii, NINTENDO DS AND PC!

Free Running, the smash-hit extreme sports game on PS2 and PSP, is heading (and leaping) to Nintendo Wii, DS and PC formats in Q2 2009!

 

Peter Rezon, Reef Entertainment Managing Director said, “Following the success of Free Running across Europe, we’ve wanted to expand the game’s formats, and at the same time, play to each formats strengths. So with the Wii version for example, similar to our recent release Rogue Trooper: Quartz Zone Massacre, we’ve utilised the Wii controllers to great effect, making the Free Running experience unique to Wii. We now have physical interface which works brilliantly with the extreme sport which is Free Running!”

 

In addition, both the Nintendo DS and PC version have been given an overhaul in terms of gameplay, graphical look and feel.

 

Peter concludes, “We’ve refreshed the overall brand messaging with these versions. We wanted to get to closer to the players who are doing the sport for real, so we’re also talking to existing Free Running teams and organisations to help with our current and long-term strategies for the franchise. Working with the Italian studio Raylight, we’ve focused very closely on maintaining the exciting pace, graphical looks, atmosphere and attitude that made the original games so popular and we’re very much looking forward to building on our Wii, PC and DS portfolio with another innovative and original title.”

 

Free Running will be launched across Europe Q2 2009
