BACKBREAKER: VENGEANCE COMING TO PSN THIS SUMMER
Prepare yourself for the ultimate gridiron showdown! Following the recent announcement that Backbreaker: Vengeance- the next chapter in the genre changing Backbreaker franchise -will be unleashed on Xbox® LIVE Arcade this summer , 505 Games and NaturalMotion today confirmed that Backbreaker: Vengeance will be available on PlayStation® Network in EMEA, bringing PlayStation®3 owners in Europe their fix of the hard-hitting action.
Backbreaker: Vengeance takes the intensity and AAA appeal of the original Backbreaker Football console game and combines it with the pick-up-and-play nature of the multi-million selling iPhone games to create a whole new, one-of-a-kind sports experience for digital download on Xbox® LIVE Arcade for Xbox®360, and now also for PlayStation®3 via PlayStation® Network. The game takes its inspiration from the wildly popular “Tackle Alley” mini-game in Backbreaker Football to deliver an all-new arcade slant on American football.
Backbreaker: Vengeance marks the first time the series has been available as a digital download via Xbox® LIVE Arcade and PlayStation® Network, featuring non-stop, hard-hitting arcade action; bone-crunching tackles; and tons of swagger from end-zone to end-zone. Unprecedented, hard-hitting tackles using NaturalMotion’s euphoria engine and jaw-dropping graphics complement the distinct pick-up-and-playability that proved so infectious with Backbreaker Football’s “Tackle Alley” mini-game.
“Backbreaker has caught the imagination of players around the world with its fresh approach to the sports genre. Backbreaker Vengeance focuses on the aspects of American football our fans love: incredible euphoria animations, gut-busting tackles, deceptive juke maneuvers and a pick-up-and-play feel,” said Torsten Reil, CEO of NaturalMotion. “This intense spiritual successor to Tackle Alley will show gamers across the world that when it comes to delivering no-frills football action, Backbreaker: Vengeance is where it’s at.”
Since its arrival on the mobile platforms in 2009 and on console in 2010, the Backbreaker franchise has garnered over six million fans across the world, testament to its proudly accessible approach to American football.
Whether you takedown or touchdown…it’s Vengeance!
