KONAMI recently announced that they will team up with Saber Interactive to bring Battle: Los Angeles to the the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. The game will be a First Person Shooter following the storyline of the movie in which aliens invade Los Angeles. It is your duty to take on the role as a US Marine helping fight off the alien assault using your various weapons. According to KONAMI your arsenal will feature “assault rifle, sniper rifle, rocket launcher, frag grenades, and a turret gun.” Essentially your standard arsenal outside the turret gun.
The game has a lot of potential as does the movie. However, not much has been released about the game which is pretty impressive considering how close we are to the rough release date of “sometime in March.” The film by Columbia Pictures is set to release March 11, 2011 so one can imagine the game will likely be released around that date. For those interested in a trailer, it is available here.
Saber Interactive is a relatively unknown studio whose only prior console release was Timeshift which did not receive favorable reviews. This is Saber’s chance to establish a name aside one of the larger game companies, KONAMI. Hopefully, Saber generates enough success through this game to help fund their upcoming project, Inversion.
