212w ago - Today Examiner.com (linked above) has uncovered an ESRB Rating for an upcoming PS3 exclusive title, namely Revenge of the Wounded Dragons.
The game is in development from A2M, the folks behind WET, and with publisher Sony Online Entertainment on board the 2D fighting title will likely be heading to PSN.
To quote from the description: "This is a 2D fighting game in which players assume the roles of two brothers attempting to avenge their grandfather's death and rescue their sister from the local mafia boss. Players frequently punch, kick, and throw enemies as they "side-scroll" (i.e., walk) forward through the platform city environments; they can also use bottles, bats, knives, Molotov cocktails, pistols, shotguns, and uzi submachine guns to kill the henchmen.
All enemies disappear from the screen seconds after they are defeated. The gun attacks represent the most intense instances of violence, as enemies react to damage with brief blood spurts, screams, and twitches. One still-image cutscene depicts a strip club where women in lingerie can be seen pole-dancing in the background."
To quote: "The story is similar to that of Gestalt, but the main character will have to save his little sister affected by an incurable illness named "Black Sentence Plague".
As he will progress in his quest he will find out more about the nature of the world and about the reasons why the demons inhabiting it have began to succumb to madness.
Both Nier Gestalt and Nier RepliCant will be released in 2010, developed by studio Cavia (Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles and Darkside Chronicles, Bullet Witch, Drakengard, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex...) and both will be officially shown at Tokyo Game show, respectively at Microsoft's and Sony's booths.
As a final juicy detail, on September the 18th the first trailer for Nier RepliCant will be aired...
