EDISON, N.J., March 31st, 2005 â€“ Gamers will finally get their hands on gamingâ€™s hottest leading lady, as Majesco (NASDAQ: MJES), an innovative provider of diversified products and content for digital entertainment platforms , today announced that its popular BloodRayne action/horror series is in development for the PSP â„¢ handheld entertainment system. BloodRayne PSP is being developed by Full Fat and will make its handheld debut this fall.
â€œBloodRayne has built a loyal following of fans and established herself as one of interactive entertainmentâ€™s most popular action heroines,â€ said Ken Gold, Vice President of Marketing for Majesco. â€œWeâ€™re thrilled to see our franchise expand into the handheld arena and believe its fast-paced acrobatic combat will make BloodRayne PSP a must-have game for PSP owners.â€
Born from the unnatural union of vampire and human, BloodRayne is blessed with the powers of a vampire but cursed with the unquenchable thirst for blood and a weakness to sunlight. BloodRayne PSP will explore BloodRayneâ€™s own purpose and history, explaining and resurrecting â€˜deadâ€™ characters from previous games while developing new characters specifically for the PSP.
Additionally, BloodRayne PSP features two-player, co-op wireless multiplayer with a playable second character. Players engage in extremely brutal combat with a unique â€œkill systemâ€ based on racking up high scores by linking chains and combos, and gaining valuable bonus multipliers. The â€œkill systemâ€ also allows players to develop their character by unlocking devastating new moves.
BloodRayne PSP will be unveiled during the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) being held May 18-20 in the Los Angeles Convention Center, booth 846 in the South Hall, in Los Angeles, CA.
