We're close to getting a new look at Krome Studio's Blade Kitten in the next few hours as a press release has been given out to media announcing a release time frame for the game adaptation of the comic by Krome's Creative Director, Steve Stamatiadis. A new trailer will make its first appearance on Game Trailers sometime today which we'll hopefully be able to embed here.
The previous trailer, released in August last year, was met with some blunt criticisms from visitors on tsumea and a call for some constructive criticism, so it's hoped that Krome Studios have made some vast improvements to the game within the last six months since we've last seen of it.
Based on the “Blade Kitten” comic book series by creator Steve Stamatiadis, Krome Studios is bringing bounty hunter Kit Ballard to digital life with the Blade Kitten downloadable video game. The action adventure game, developed by Krome Studios, is set for release on the PlayStation(R)Network from PlayStation(R)3 computer entertainment system in Spring 2010.
“Blade Kitten is a brain child of mine that originated as a comic series,” said Steve Stamatiadis, Krome co-founder and creative director, who also created the multi-million selling Ty the Tasmanian TigerTM series. “Bringing Kit’s anime-inspired universe to life is a milestone for us, and we’re excited to open her world up to gamers on the PlayStation Network.”
Blade Kitten invites players into the world of Hollow Wish, where they take on the role of Kit Ballard, one of the best bounty hunters in the business. With her pink hair and tail, Kit is part cat, part girl - and fully lethal. As one of the last of her species, Kit commands her unique “Darque Blade” hovering sword to defeat enemies. Also along for the ride is Skiffy, Kit’s laid-back sidekick who lends a hand in collecting items, solving puzzles, and when needed, serves as Kit’s protector.
Blade Kitten goes beyond most downloadable titles to deliver a strong narrative, with high-quality cinematics, and a colorful, frenetic visual style, that lends to the pick-up-and-play arcade action. Players will jump right in and easily begin exploring and fighting their way through 19 levels, including three exploration levels with Noot (a rideable alien mount).
Blade Kitten will be released as a two-part mini-series available exclusively via digital distribution on the PlayStation(R)Network from PlayStation(R)3 computer entertainment system.
The Blade Kitten trailer and gameplay will be revealed tonight, Thursday, February 18, exclusively on Game Trailers TV at 12:30 am ET/PT on Spike TV in the US, and shortly after the episode airs on GameTrailers.com in glorious High Definition.
