    Konami guns for PSP with Coded Arms

    Konami announces stunning first-person shooter for Sony's new handheld video game system

    Konami of Europe has announced it will release Coded Arms, a breath-taking first-person shooter title, for Sony's PSP™ handheld video game system, this summer.

    Already being hailed as one of the most anticipated titles for the new system, Coded Arms is a fast-paced and aesthetically stunning first-person shooter set within a hastily abandoned Virtual Reality system. The VR universe was originally conceived as a training device to prepare mankind for an alien invasion, but was hurriedly shut down when the system became self-aware and created a brutal world populated with virtual, yet hostile alien races. Cast as a hacker, the player is equipped with an array of hi-tech weaponry and must cleanse the VR world of its unsavoury denizens.

    The game's virtual landscape is split into three distinct worlds and enjoys a lavish level of detail and lighting effects that show off the power of the Sony system perfectly, while eerie lighting and shadow effects add to the ever-present oppressive atmosphere. Similarly, Coded Arms' computer-devised aliens are equally impressive and range from enhanced soldiers, insect-themed species and robotic adversaries, each of which have certain vulnerabilities to specific weapons that the player can use to their advantage.

    Coded Arms also ensures the player is suitably equipped for the tough task that awaits them. Over 30 different weapon systems are available, with machine guns and pulse weapons and sniper rifles allowing for blanket or precision shooting, while a variety of grenade styles also feature in the game's impressive arsenal. The game also makes use of the PSP's wireless capabilities, with up to four players invited to compete in the game's many multi-player modes. Any weapons collected by the player in the single-player mode can also be accessed during the multi-player games, further extending the longevity of this already engrossing shooter.

    Coded Arms will be released for the PSP™ handheld video game system in Q3, 2005.

    Konami Announces Coded Arms for the PSP Handheld Entertainment System

    Konami's Highly Anticipated FPS Comes to North America This Summer

    REDWOOD CITY, Calif. - January 6, 2005
    Konami Digital Entertainment - America, a division of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc., announced today that Coded Arms™, the company's highly-anticipated first-person shooter (FPS), will be coming to the PSP™ handheld entertainment system in North America this summer. Konami's first entry into the FPS genre, Coded Arms delivers stunning graphics, fast-paced action and an intense, unique storyline that will make it one of the PSP handheld system's premiere titles.

    "Coded Arms will set the standard for FPS games on the PSP handheld system," said Wilson Cheng product manager at Konami Digital Entertainment - America. "Through its state-of-the-art visuals, multiplayer functionality and other original features that take full advantage of the hardware, Coded Arms will be one of the must have titles for the PSP handheld system."

    Coded Arms takes place in an abandoned virtual reality system and its portal site inside a giant computer network. The VR system was originally created as a combat training simulator in the event of an alien invasion. However, during the development of the simulation program, a major flaw was discovered and development was cancelled and left abandoned. During this time when the program was not monitored, it kept evolving within the computer network and eventually turned into a vast and brutal VR world populated with virtual alien invaders, dangerous computer bugs and the VR system's own security bots.

    Players take the role of a computer hacker who infiltrates the abandoned virtual reality system. Gamers will use weapons and power-ups that they discover while exploring the expansive single player mode. Coded Arms will also utilize the PSP handheld system's wireless capabilities for multiplayer action for up to four people. To enhance the multiplayer experience, gamers can bring over their items they collect from the single player mode and use them in the multiplayer mode to defeat other players and enemies.

    To battle deep into the heart of the unchecked system, players will fight through more than five different game worlds with multiple gameplay levels. Players will encounter three different types of enemies, including soldiers, bugs and bots. More than 30 different weapons will be available to battle the horde of virtual creatures, including real world weapons such as sniper rifles, machine guns and grenades, and more fantastic armaments such as pulse rifles.

    Coded Arms is being developed by Konami Computer Entertainment Studios. Coded Arms is slated for release in summer 2005.
