Twin Blades shoot/slicing in EU PSN Store on February 2nd
Twin Blades is nothing if not stylish. This zombie shooter is in possession of an extremely cool looking art style, and, if nothing else, will certainly look the part when it releases on February 2nd at the price of €2.99 / £2.49. The game takes place in a vaguely medieval setting, with the player tasked with ridding the land of this zombie menace over 10 levels of certain carnage. In case you weren’t entirely convinced by my description of the game’s art style, here’s a couple of screenshots to tide you over.

TWIN BLADES in the European PlayStation Store on February 2nd, 2011
Bulkypix, Press Start Studio and Sanuk Games are happy to announce that the frantic shooter TWIN BLADES will be released in the European PlayStation Store on February 2nd, 2011. The game will be available in the “minis” category for PSP and PS3 at a price of €2.99 / £2.49.
Help Sister Angelika defeat evil with some heavy zombie-killing action! Venture across multiple locations to purge the town of all its living-dead inhabitants. Refill your energy by slicing zombies with your mighty scythe, then unleash the destructive powers of your artillery!
Set in a medieval fantasy world where walking corpses, limbs torn apart and splatters of blood are all drawn in a superb manga style, TWIN BLADES has all it takes to please hardcore gamers seeking strong visual experiences. Its eclectic inspirations ranging from Japanese anime subculture to Italian adult movies are the hallmark of men of good taste.
“We’re very excited to bring TWIN BLADES to Playstation Minis” says Philippe Rapin, co-founder of Press Start Studio, “Sanuk Games has a proven track record of delivering quality ports and the Playstation ergonomics makes it a platform of choice for such an action-packed game.”
TWIN BLADES’ immersive storyline will take you through 10 breathtaking locations by day and night, where you will fight scores of zombies and epic bosses. With 6 weapons ranging from machine gun to explosive nukes, and 11 skills to buy and upgrade, you will purify the city of Jalombe from the seeds of corruption.
Previously released on various smartphones and on Xbox Live, TWIN BLADES was praised for setting a new visual quality standard for independent games. Levi Buchanan of ign.com called it a “fun zombie roaster with gorgeous artwork”, noting that “raking a scythe across a zombie boss is always good entertainment, really.”
TWIN BLADES for PlayStation will also be released in North America at a later date.
