Later this month, Capcom will be releasing Dark Void to the PS3, XBox 360 and PC, and the spin-off DSiWare title Dark Void Zero. In both games, players strap on a rocket pack to battle across vast alien environments in a parallel universe, both on foot and in the air. Television composer Bear McCreary, well-known for his superb scoring of Battlestar Galactica and Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles, is responsible for scoring both games; the audio is going to be a treat! My copy of the PS3 game is already on pre-order; I haven’t been so excited about a game since the release of Beyond Good & Evil!
Though a release date has not been announced, a Capcom representative today revealed that in addition to its release on DSiWare, Dark Void Zero would also be coming to the iPhone and the PC at a later date.
A platforming action game reminiscent of classic Mega Man titles, Dark Void Zero spins off from the epic console action game, Dark Void. In Dark Void Zero, you play Rusty, the first human born in the Void, who must take on the Watchers in a quest to stop their domination of Earth. With the aid of Nikola Tesla, and his state-of-the-art rocket pack, Rusty must take down the Watchers and their minions across three intense levels of action and intrigue.
We’ll be looking forward to more news on this release, and hoping Capcom does a better job with it than with the iPhone port of Mega Man 2. In the meantime, check out the trailer for the DSi version:
