A brief word from XSeed, who have launched a new DS title called Avalon Code:|
Torrance, Calif., (March 10, 2009) ? Videogame publishers Marvelous Entertainment USA and XSEED Games announced today that Avalon Code has started shipping to retail stores across North America. Avalon Code is an action RPG developed exclusively for the Nintendo DS platform.
Time is dwindling down and the world is on a path headed towards a fiery destruction. As ?the chosen one,? players must hold on to everything worth saving in this dying place, and take it into the new world, to begin anew. Guided by the Spirits, players embark on a journey to fill the pages of the mysterious tome, the Book of Prophecy, with items worthy of being saved.
Developed by Matrix Software, Avalon Code extends the creative capabilities of the Nintendo DS to a new limit with highly detailed characters, landscapes and monsters, all modeled in beautiful 3D. Experience the game world come to life as almost any object in Avalon Code can be recorded and manipulated within the Book of Prophecy, making the possibilities endless. In addition, Avalon Code features extensive voiceovers and a dynamic animated opening sequence.
Critics agree that the Book of Prophecy offers a completely new gameplay mechanic unlike anything seen before on the DS:
?Avalon Code offers a unique experience among action RPG?s. Capturing people and objects in the Book of Prophecy and playing with their attributes is a compelling mechanic you won?t find anywhere else.? ? IGN.com, 8.3 out of 10
?The Book of Prophecy is a great idea, and it?s far from the game?s only left-field innovation.? ? Nintendo Power, 8.5 out of 10
Avalon Code boasts incredible graphics, a deep and engrossing storyline and innovative game play mechanics. Using the main character?s Book of Prophecy, players can modify the rules of engagement during battle, as well as weapon and monster attributes. Choose to play as male or female, affecting which characters you may be able to develop a romantic relationship with.
