FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Toronto, CA - May 11, 2005 - Hip GamesTM is proud to announce the addition of "Jackie Chan Adventures" to its release schedule for summer 2005. Developed exclusively for the PlayStation®2 computer home entertainment system, the official game of the world's greatest Kung Fu star promises to deliver the same kid friendly mix of fast-paced adventure Jackie made famous.
"Jackie Chan Adventures" follows the exploits of Jackie Chan, an expert in ancient artifacts and, at times, a secret government agent. This time, Jackie's mission is nothing less than saving the world from an evil power known only as the Dark Hand and can only be accomplished by finding magical talismans from around the world and beyond.
- Based on the hit children's action animation, featuring beautiful graphics and all the favorite heroes, villains and locations from the show;
- Players can unleash a massive selection of Jackie Chan's trademark acrobatics and kung fu - run up walls, back flip, throw their enemies and use all the moves seen in the show;
- Collect talismans to unlock new abilities for Jackie and reach new levels in the game; and
- Use your body to play hilarious bonus-games with EyeToy.
This summer, join Jackie and an entire cast of characters from the hit cartoon series to defeat the Dark Hand and save the world!
