Lately, I’ve lost most of my interest in Xbox LIVE Arcade, Virtual Console and PSN. For the most part, it becomes a nostalgic money sink where you’re rarely picking up games that are unique and actually worth the cost. One game that has recently piqued my interest is ‘Blade Kitten’ which will be released in September on XBLA, PSN and Windows PC Download.
I keep telling myself to stop sinking so much money into DLC that’s usually not worth the money and then this comes around. We love anime here on the site and we also love gaming and this looks like a two for one purchase considering our desires.
From the press release:
Atari, one of the world’s most recognized videogame publishers, announced today that they have acquired the rights to publish Blade Kitten, the videogame based on the comic book series by creator Steve Stamatiadis. Developer Krome Studios brings bounty hunter Kit Ballard to digital life with Blade Kitten which Atari will release this September for Xbox LIVE® Arcade for Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®Network, and Windows PC Download at Atari.com.
“Bringing the anime-inspired universe of Blade Kitten to life via Xbox LIVE Arcade, Playstation®Network and PC Download is sure to resonate with gamers,” says Jim Wilson, President and CEO of Atari, Inc. “With high-quality, colorful arcade action, which translates incredibly from comic book to videogame and a new spin on side-scrolling non-stop action to an already rabid platforming fan base of gamers on XBLA and PSN, we are looking forward to a successful launch.”
From what I’ve seen so far, the game looks original and entertaining. My guess is that the game will not be as long as I’d like, but I’ll take what I can get. We need more originality when it comes to DLC and this game could certainly provide that.
